  • Beyond Vision 2020: Proposed Vision Statement Released

    Responding to a charge from the 2012 House of Delegates to revise Vision 2020 to "reflect the vision of the profession of physical therapy and its commitment to society beyond 2020," the Vision Task Force sent a revised vision to the APTA Board of Directors for consideration at its November 2012 meeting. The Board will forward the proposed vision to the 2013 House of Delegates for consideration. Information about the proposed vision has been posted and is available for members and delegates to review. Please direct your comments about the vision to your chapter or section delegates or directly to the members of the Vision Task Force.


    • The vision statement is a good start in emphasizing optiomal movement performance. However, I think there needs to be more emphasis on prevention and wellness activities that influence optimal movement.

    • If future wellness efforts are to succeed the elements of the vision that must be addressed are collaboration, value and consumer-centricity. So far there has been uncertain value to what we have offered and little interest by consumers, employers or payors. The future should include screening glucose and lipid profiles alongside exercise prescription and patient education. Customized approaches must be developed that encompass full physiology with a more wholistic view of function.
