July 5 is the deadline to submit an application for consideration to serve on the RC 4-11 through RC 12-11 task force. At its June 2011 meeting, the House of Delegates adopted a motion charging the Board of Directors to review the current model of the physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, and physical therapy aide as the only participants involved in delivery of physical therapist services and to identify other potential models for delivery of these services. This work will be conducted by a board-appointed task force. Interested APTA members who are eligible to serve on this task force should complete and submit the volunteer application no later than July 5. Applications should be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com or by fax at 703/706-8519.
Additional information on the motions the task force will be reviewing can be found on APTA's Web site.
In order to meet the House of Delegate’s deadline for a report from the task force, work will begin in the next few months and will require a high level of engagement by those appointed.
Please e-mail APTA's Executive Department with questions regarding this task force or call 800/999-2782, ext 3256.
