Temple University – RT Wise Owls!

Temple University (Philadelphia, PA) had a vendor booth at the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) conference in Chicago!

I picked up a neat flyer that advertises their RT Wise Owls.

It is a free database of information with evidenced-based research that is relevant to the scope of Recreational Therapy practice.

Here are the facts that the handout included:

  • 250+ research summaries related to RT practice
  • Explanation of the knowledge translation action cycle to help RTs learn how to conduct their own evidence-based practice literature review
  • Contains links to over 70 evidence-based practice search engines, webinars, and outcome measurements.

Danny Pettry: this is absolutely one of the best resources for recreational therapists out there.

You can follow RT Wise Owls email updates by going to their web-page and singing up for email updates:

NOTE: I didn’t see Heather Porter (Temple University), but I know she’ll be at the conference because she is presenting. I am going to attend her session. I did see her books at the Idyll Arbor vendor booth:

  • Recreational Therapy Basics, Techniques and Interventions
  • Recreational Therapy and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health
  • Recreational Therapy for Specific Diagnoses and Conditions.
