The Bend Bulletin recently highlighted the Health Services Research (HSR) study on direct access that found that patients who self refer to physical therapy had fewer visits and lower costs compared with patients who are referred by physicians. The article features study co-author Janet K. Freburger, PT, PhD, and several PTs who practice in Oregon.
APTA's Public Relations Department was contacted by the reporter for this article. The association continues to roll out its communications plan on this important study to members, the media, and the public.
