APTA has prepared several resources to help physical therapists successfully integrate direct access into clinical practice. The Direct Access Checklist for Clinicians helps physical therapists overcome potential barriers to direct access and addresses issues of clinical preparation, referral relationships, payment, and marketing. The Direct Access Checklist for Managers, Practice Owners, and Administrators addresses these topics along with additional administrative and management issues. Direct Access: A Resource for Implementation is a planning tool that provides a road map that should be useful for both clinicians and practices interested in making physical therapist services available to the public without referral.
