    APTA to Expand Access to Hooked on Evidence to Nonmembers

    The House of Delegates passed a resolution calling for complimentary "read only" access to Hooked on Evidence for all health care practitioners and health care students world-wide in an effort to advance evidence-based practice by all physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.

    In adopting Access to Hooked on Evidence, the House cited language in APTA's Vision 2020 that supports the use of evidence-based practice by all physical therapists. [RC-25] 

    Draft language adopted by the 2012 House will be available on the House Community next week. Final language for all actions taken by the June 2012 House will be available by September after the minutes have been approved.

    I think this is fabulous. I am and always will be an APTA member, but we should promote evidence based practice for all!

    This , I agree is great news. This has always been a problem for therapist/students who couldn't afford to be members.

    Per the House of Delegates resolution, Hooked on Evidence would become free access in 2013.
