Mind mapping is a great way to help you remember ideas, concepts, details, and their relation to each other in a quick, easy way. Use this method in addition to your regular note taking system as a kind of big picture “bird’s eye” view of the main concepts of an article, chapter, or segment of reading material.

Mind maps help you sort out information visually. They are essentially thought bubbles linked together in relation to each other which create self-organized, relational, nested sub-topic trees. Almost all of us have seen these before, and they are quite effortless to make. They are regular in almost all business and science books. Think of mind maps as detailed relational flow charts.

ergonomic 2We all know that computer work can lead to repetitive stress injuries.  Learn from an expert in the field of OT about the key risk factors for transcriptionists and how you can avoid them yet still remain productive in your career.  Though we hear about well-known conditions caused by extensive keyboarding such as CTS and ulnar nerve entrapment, there are also other conditions which can be equally disabling such as neck and back disorders like sciatica and disk herniations.  Conditions such as fibromyalgia are extremely common amongst MT practitioners.  Most importantly, learn about simple ways you can improve ergonomics starting with postural modification, adjustments in chair and keyboard poistions and exercises requiring only minutes to perform to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation.  Learn more about specific ergonomic equipment (what works for some might not work for others) and learn how to evaluate purchases of equipment to suit your own needs.  Also learn more about the benefits of seeing an occupational therapist or hand specialist to further analyze your work station and your transcription practices.

ABOUT RYAN GLOVER: Ryan Glover has been a licensed Occupational Therapist for 16 years and a certified hand therapist for 10 years.  He operates a private hand therapy practice with 5 offices in the Portland, Oregon area, which specializes in orthopedic treatment of the upper extremity.  In addition to his outpatient clinics he does office ergonomic evaluations and has done several industry specific ergonomic presentations involving workstation set-up.
