Scott L. Bartow, MS, RRT, FAARC Brookfield, Wisconsin
Respiratory Therapists have specialized knowledge and skills. The future of our specialty is highly dependent upon our ability to continue to capitalize on our "core" competencies. Opportunities for therapists are all around us. There is an abundance of help out there for us to tap into.
The presenter offers an overview of the entrepreneurial voyage not limited to, but with an emphasis on respiratory care. This includes a thought process for assessing skills and suggestions for selecting and initiating your own business.
