  • Helping Your Profession in 15 Minutes or Less

    APTA has a question for physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs):

    Just what do you think you're doing? Your answers could earn you a $250 Amazon gift card.

    Actually, APTA has several questions to ask of its membership, and the answers will help to inform how the association, researchers, policymakers, and payers view who PTs and PTAs are, what they do, and how much they get paid to do it. It's all a part of the current PT Practice Profile and PTA Profile surveys that have been disseminated to members.

    The surveys are the association's large-scale effort to take a snapshot of PT and PTA members across the country, including demographics of the profession, practice settings, salary data, and productivity data. The results of the survey—the first since 2013—will be used to update APTA’s workforce resources, and are typically incorporated into advocacy and other association efforts.

    The surveys take about 10-15 minutes to complete, and the form itself is easy to fill out. And to add a little extra motivation to the mix, APTA is awarding $250 Amazon gift cards to 2 randomly selected respondents.

    So be on the lookout for your survey email invitation. The deadline is January 27. Members should check their email inboxes as well as spam filters for the survey.

    • About finding the survey... All PTs and PTAs who are members of APTA (and have not opted out of receiving surveys from APTA) should have received an email from the association with a link to the survey. Please be sure to check your inbox and spam folder for a message from APTA (specifically, from "research-dept@apta.org"). If you believe you should have received the survey but didn't, contact the APTA research department at research-dept@apta.org. Thanks!
