Abstract

PRESIDENT’S P ERSPECTIVE G. Stephen Morris, PT, PhD, FACSM President, Oncology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association, and Professor, Department of Physical Therapy, Wingate University, Wingate, NC Hello everyone. When I assumed the Section presi- of safety concerns, complexity of care, patient equipment, dency, I assumed the responsibility of writing a column and the belief that energy conservation is important in for each issue of the Journal. No one provided me with promoting recovery. We have learned over the last cou- direction in terms of content; our editor simply gave ple decades or so that once these patients leave the acute me deadlines for the column. I have tried several differ- care setting, they face a future of amplified symptom bur- ent approaches to content and none have been critiqued, den and an increased likelihood of multiple functional so I am left floundering about with regards to what it impairments. Efforts to ameliorate this situation have led is exactly that I should write. In this edition of Presi- to the delivery of a higher “dose” of physical therapy ear- dent’s Perspective, I would like to continue my struggle lier in the clinical course of a critical illness. A
