Q&A
Q: Why did you become an occupational therapist? A: After my mother had three children she decided to leave the art therapy field and become a preschool teacher to spend more time with the family. It was in this setting where she became familiar with occupational therapy, a profession my father was already very acquainted with as a geriatrician. Both of them recognized my potential in this field and encouraged me to seek out opportunities to shadow professionals and learn more about this dynamic profession, which I am so proud to be associated with today. After an extensive day shadowing one therapist traveling from two different pediatric settings to a geriatric setting to assistant teaching a class at a city college, I knew I had found a career, which would continue to challenge and motivate me throughout my life. Q: What can you tell us about Theraplay? A: It is an ever-expanding company with multiple facilities located around Pennsylvania. The site that I work at is located in Broomall and the population consists of children, infants to 21 years old, both typically developing and with special needs. Among the services the OT team offers are sensory integration, handwriting, feeding, ALERT program, and Therapeutic Listening. Q: When and how did you start at this facility? A: I started with Theraplay approximately one year ago; however, I

Flash forward to two years later when I stopped at the Theraplay booth at the annual AOTA conference in Philadelphia and provided them with my information.

Study Questions Reasons for Routine Pelvic Exams
THE PELVIC EXAM, a standard part of a woman’s gynecologic checkup, frequently is performed for reasons that are medically unjustified, according to the authors of a UCSF study that may lay the groundwork for future changes to medical practice. and pinpoint potential problems early. Traditionally, these have included, among other assessments, a manual inspection of a woman’s cervix and uterus and a Pap smear.

years who had no symptoms of gynecologic diseases and did not require a Pap test. The study centered on the bimanual exam, not other components of a pelvic checkup such as a speculum exam and visual inspection of external genitalia which are often performed. The researchers found that nearly all the physicians surveyed routinely would conduct the exam in asymptomatic, low-risk women. Furthermore, most of the doctors said they would perform the exam on a 55-year-old woman with no ovaries, uterus or cervix—and more than half considered such an exam to be very important for that woman. Some 87% of the physicians said they would perform the exam on healthy 18-year-olds. ACOG recently recommended the exam not begin routinely until age 21. Altogether, nearly half the physicians erroneously believe the exam is very important in screening for ovarian cancer, despite longstanding recommendations discouraging its use for this purpose. Notably, many doctors said they conduct the exam in part for non-clinical reasons: because it reassures patients, because patients expect it, because it ensures adequate compensation for routine gynecologic care. There were clear geographic patterns: doctors in the northeast and the south were more likely to consider the exams very impor-

tant and to believe they “reassure patients of their health.’’ The researchers said their study shows a need to educate doctors about the appropriateness of the exam, especially to clarify its role in ovarian cancer screening. The study also should prompt a closer look at the evidence that supports the exam’s usefulness for the reasons cited by surveyed physicians, they said. “These exams could result in unnecessary surgeries or women being falsely reassured,’’ Henderson said. “We need to have more discussion over whether the benefits of these exams outweigh the harms, and if they should be part of a woman’s annual checkup.’’ UCSF co-authors are Cynthia C. Harper, PhD, and Jocelyn Chapman, MD, of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences; and Sarah Gutin, MPH, of the UCSF School of Nursing’s Department of Community Health Systems. Funding for the study was provided by a grant from the UCSF Mt.

Exercise Program Helps Pediatric Cancer Survivors Regain Physical Strength, Balance, Encourages Weight Loss
THERE ARE MANY health effects that a patient may need to overcome after winning a battle against cancer. Cancer treatments can affect the patient’s balance, agility, coordination, prompt weight gain and other physical ailments. At Nationwide Children’s Hospital, beating cancer doesn’t mark the end of a child’s treatment regimen. A new exercise program at the hospital helps pediatric cancer survivors and those in remission regain both physical strength and confidence. “Play Strong,” a pediatric cancer exercise program in partnership with the Sports Medicine and Oncology teams at Nationwide Children’s, is led by certified athletic trainers. The program was developed for cancer patients, 8-21-years-old, who are off treatment and have clearance from their physician. It is based on functional rehabilitation activities including flexibility, muscle strength, power, balance, agility and functional coordination. cardiovascular fitness, strength, power, agility and functional movement skills to get their bodies back into the motion of physical activity.” Play Strong was designed for pediatric and adolescent cancer survivors to improve their motor skills and transition into physical activity safely. The goals are to improve muscle strength and power, balance and agility for better body coordination and self-confidence with all physical activities. “While the kids have the heart and have the mind to get back into physical activity, once their chemotherapy is over, their bodies sometimes just aren’t ready,” said Randal Olshefski, MD chief of the Section of Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and also an associate professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. “Play Strong is just another example of continuing to break through the barriers. We want the kids, safely, to get back to being as much of a kid as possible.”

“Clumps” and “Gaps” Typify Public Health Social Network
AT A TIME when the nation’s healthcare system is relying more than ever on the diffusion of innovative ideas and best practices to increase efficiency and decrease costs, a new study now shows that that the nation’s peer-to-peer network for public health executives to be more effective. Research from the emerging field of social network analysis revealed that local health department executives tend to talk to each other in small groups of twos and threes, mainly within state boundaries. “Professional social networks are recognized as an important vehicle for influencing ideas about practices that are valuable and effective,” says lead author Jacqueline Merrill, RN, MPH, DNSc, of Columbia University School of Nursing. “Overall, the gaps in information flow suggest that a direct peer-to-peer network is currently not the main way local health officials tend to communicate about administrative, professional and leadership issues in public health.” The paper, “Topology of Local Health Officials’ Advice Networks: Mind the Gaps,” was recently published in the Journal of Public Health Management Practice. The researchers investigated how top executives in local health departments communicate about substantive issues using the data from the National Association of County and City Health Officials 2010 National Profile Survey. Merrill and her colleagues constructed network diagrams representing communication links between local health departments which were augmented by attributes such as geographic location and size. Other characteristics were included to assess the overall terrain, or topology, of the communication network making visible communication patterns and the geographic distribution of links in the network. In a typical diffusion model, health officials at the periphery of the information network would rely on communication and ideas spreading from a central wellconnected core. In this case, researchers found that the connections were sparse at both the center and the periphery of the network, a pattern which could slow down the diffusion of ideas, but also suggests potential for improvement. Further, there was no sign that a central group of

health officials served as thought leaders or coordinated the flow of information with the rest of the network. A picture emerges, says Merrill, which shows an average health official at the local level who has only a few direct ties to peers, and a small effective network within his or her local area. In order to effectively spread the news about best practices and other innovations, the public health system could benefit from a communication network where health officials’ are connected to one another in greater numbers. “The more information each health official knows about the activities of their public health peers, the more opportunities there are for best practices to spread through the system,” says Merrill. “Information and influence might focus on professional issues such as culture change regarding quality improvement, enhanced leadership techniques, or improved business practices,” she says. “All public health practice is local, but not all innovation is local,” Merrill adds. Her team is now working on a computer simulation of communication flow that could guide interventions to increase the spread of information in the health officials’ advice network.
