    New Video: Examining Frequency and Duration in Pediatric Physical Therapy

    A new addition to APTA's Innovations in Practice video series highlights how a frequency-and-duration program has changed practice for some 80 therapists in the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia rehabilitation division. The program aims to ensure that the therapists' services are being used optimally, not only in mindfulness of insurance resources that may need to be spread among different health care providers but also to give the best possible care to their young patients. The program has focused on establishing guidelines for frequency and duration of visits for different levels of intensity of services; setting realistic goals for each patient based on the guidelines; and moving each patient and his or her parents, as appropriate and with monitoring as needed, toward self-care, independent from hospital visits. Hear Kim Nixon-Cave, PT, PhD, PCS, explain how the program was created and implemented, and check out the handout that illustrates this innovative model of care.
