    PTJ Named Official Journal of Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy

    The Royal Dutch Society for Physical Therapy (KNGF) has made PTJ its official journal. KNGF members will have access to PTJ Online as one of its member benefits. Editor in Chief Rebecca Craik, PT, PhD, FAPTA, notes in her February editorial, "I am delighted to be entering into this relationship with our Dutch colleagues, [who have] made significant contributions to our understanding of the use of measurement tools to examine clinical effectiveness …, advanced our understanding of clinical practice guideline development and clinician adherence to guidelines, as well as our understanding of professional issues such as direct access, continuing education, and physical therapist consultation in primary care." Philip Van der Wees, PT, PhD, who is affiliated with the Scientific Institute for Quality of Healthcare at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center and with Maastricht University, was nominated by the Royal Dutch Society and appointed by Craik to serve on PTJ's Editorial Board; he will share his expertise in clinical practice guideline development and in examining clinician adherence to practice guidelines.

    Having been a Physical Therapist for almost 38 years, trained in the Netherlands, worked as a PT in the Netherlands for 10 years, before I emigrated to this country, and practicing in NJ and Virginia for 27 years, I am very proud of this relationship between APTA and the Dutch PT association.
