From the Paper:

"As research further expands, it is also important to have compassion to deal with the patient's family (Physical Therapists, 2008). I feel that my strong personal skills have adapted me to dealing with many people, and communicating with a lot of people--not only patients but their families as well. In helping patients, I feel I would be good at communicating with patients and families to create supportive environments for the patient both in the office and outside in the rehabilitation process. This requires focus, expertise, and communication skills that I feel I can bring to the profession because I am disciplined and a very hard worker."
