  • CoHSTAR Offers Online Viewing for First-Ever Conference on PT Health Services Research

    A first-of-its-kind gathering to explore physical therapy health services research with some of the profession's top researchers is nearly at capacity, but you still have a chance to tune in remotely.

    The Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) is offering a 2-day Summer Institute on Health Services Research June 28-29 at Boston University. Specifically targeted toward training physical therapists in health policy and health services, the institute is CoHSTAR’s first national conference since its inception in 2015.

    Events during the institute will include presentations on integrated health care systems, pragmatic trials, health care industry collaboration, hospital and academic collaboration, as well as discussions of ongoing CoHSTAR research projects.

    The list of presenters reads like a who's who of physical therapy research: Kristin Archer, PhD, DPT, Katherine Berg, PT, PhD, Gerard Brennan, PT, PhD, Tony Delitto, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Pamela Duncan, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Kelley Fitzgerald, PT, PhD, Michael Friedman, PT, MBA, Julie Fritz, PT, PhD, ATC, FAPTA, James Irrgang, PT, PhD, ATC, FAPTA, Alan Jette, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Diane Jette, PT, DSc, FAPTA, Michael Johnson, PT, PhD, OCS, Vincent Mor, PhD, Ken Ottenbacher, PhD, OTR, Linda Resnik, PT, PhD, and Mary Stilphen, PT, DPT.

    In-person attendance has reached capacity, but CoHSTAR will offer live online access to the conference on June 29—though this option also has limits on the number of attendees it can accommodate. Bottom line: if you want to get in on this, do it now.

    CoHSTAR was created through a $2.5 million grant awarded by the Foundation for Physical Therapy, a grant that received $1 million in support from APTA. In addition to the summer institute, CoHSTAR sponsors visiting scientists, offers fellowships, and provides other training sessions.
