part of APTA's strategic plan, one of the goals for 2013 is to better enable
physical therapists to consistently use best practice to improve the quality of
life of their patients and clients. To achieve this goal, APTA is supporting
the development of clinical practice evidence-based documents. This initiative
aims to provide structure, process, and resources for the development of
Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) and Clinical Practice Appraisals (CPA) that
enable the translation of research into physical therapist practice. In order
to facilitate the development of clinical practice documents and other high
quality evidence summaries, APTA is offering financial and training support to sections
for this purpose.

individually and will be awarded in part or in full depending on the priorities
of the association and the strength of the proposal.
