Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience is APTA's vision for the profession. Making this vision a reality will take a collective and consistent effort by APTA and its membership.
APTA will collaborate with policymakers, payers, the public, and health care professionals in multiple efforts to advocate for policy changes that seek to address both the immediate and long-term needs of the profession, including payment reform, innovative care delivery, improved access to care for patients and consumers, advancement of quality initiatives, and demonstration of the value and integrity of physical therapy. These priorities constitute a call to action—to be engaged and empowered to advance our vision.
