Dec 10, 2019 3:37:01 PM

In any business, it is important to keep operations up to date and encourage employees to strengthen their skills. For pediatric occupational therapy practices, there are several steps that can be taken to ensure that a practice and its OT therapists are as current and effective as possible. One step is to utilize a high-performing EMR platform that will keep your practice’s notes, scheduling, and billing under control. 

Continuing education (CEU) courses are another fantastic way to keep your practice in good shape. By encouraging your pediatric OT clinicians to engage in CEU courses, you are helping to keep your practice refreshed and impactful. In fact, many states require pediatric OTs to participate in a certain number of CEU course hours every year. We’ve rounded up some of the pediatric OT CEU course options approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) that you can recommend to your pediatric OT practitioners.
