Several leading primary emergency department (ED) diagnoses have the potential for physical therapy triage and possible treatment, according to a new APTA resource that members can use with facility administrators or ED staff to illustrate the value of physical therapy in the ED. Developed by the member experts who created the Incorporating Physical Therapist Practice in the ED: A Toolkit for Practitioners, this new PowerPoint outlines recent ED trends, potential benefits of having physical therapists (PTs) in the ED, and how ED PTs can improve patient satisfaction and patient function and outcomes.
APTA members can download the PowerPoint and tailor it for their specific presentation needs. Find the Value of Physical Therapy in the ED PowerPoint and other resources on APTA's Physical Therapist Practice in the Emergency Department webpage.
