Our question was, “How long do you think an ideal workweek should be?” Overwhelmingly it should be four days, 68 percent of the respondents said. Making your own 40-hour schedule was chosen by 24 percent, and six percent were fine with the typical five days.
“Six days. I love my job,” said one follower. Another follower chose 4.5 days. When asked why that amount, he responded, “That’s what I’m doing now and it’s great! I still have all five days available to see patients, but I get home to my family a little earlier on Friday.”
Our Twitter followers were split between four and five days as the ideal schedule.

“People quit bosses,” said one follower. “And lack of support,” said another.

Now that the AOPA 2023 Policy Forum is underway in Washington DC, we thought this would be a good week to center on advocacy in O&P—namely what’s the best way to engage.
Our question “How do you engage in O&P advocacy?” is up and in full swing. Tell us what you think. We’d love to hear from you.
