Running a successful aquatics program takes more than merely having the right kind of advanced therapy pool, it also involves the buy-in and excitement of physical therapy clinic or facility staff members. An ICAA hosted webinar sponsored by HydroWorx webinar will be held on August 20, 2015, from 1-2 p.m. E.D.T. to discuss ways that facility leaders can foster employee engagement to build a burgeoning aquatics practice.

It’s no secret that you ideally need access to a world-class therapy pool to launch an aquatics program at your clinic, hospital or senior living community. However, having a HydroWorx pool is only part of the key to making the new programming a success. Another, often overlooked, element of launching aquatic therapy offerings is the complete and unwavering engagement of the clinic’s team members. Without their constant enthusiasm and creativity, it can be harder to maintain a steady flow of repeat and new clientele and referrals.

HydroWorx, the world leader in therapy pools, is sponsoring an International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) webinar called “Create a Successful Aquatics Program Through Staff Engagement” on August 20, 2015, from 1-2 p.m. E.D.T. This free webinar will touch upon the many ways that staff involvement can transform an aquatics practice into a successful business model. Led by Texas-based presenter Keith McCrate, PT, the Director of Rehabilitation and Wellness Services at Presbyterian Village North (PVN), “Create a Successful Aquatics Program Through Staff Engagement” will focus upon:

  •     Best practices for training therapists and fitness/wellness staff to work together based on models developed at Presbyterian Village North.
  •     How to establish a high-quality aquatics program to improve patient/client outcomes.
  •     How to bridge physical therapy and wellness programming to maximize aquatics programming benefits.
  •     Ways to keep the engagement high across the board, especially among long-tenured staff members.

“Create a Successful Aquatics Program Through Staff Engagement” is well suited for attendees such as facility administrators and executive directors, directors of physical therapy and rehab, wellness directors and coordinators, and aquatics and fitness directors.
