Tuesday, October 04, 2011 Applications for 2 New Areas of PTA Recognition Now Accepted The PTA Recognition Work Group, the Acute Care Section, and the Oncology Section announce 2 new categories of Advanced Proficiency Recognition for PTAs—acute care and oncology. These 2 areas of recognition will provide PTAs with even more opportunity to be recognized for the work that they have done to gain additional knowledge and skills to improve their ability to assist physical therapists and enhance patient/client outcomes. PTAs in these areas of work are eligible to apply for Recognition of Advanced Proficiency for the PTA. The next application deadline is February 1, 2012, but there is no need to wait to apply. The Work Group will process your application as soon as it is received. More information can be found at www.apta.org/ptarecognition.
