his 2012 McMillan Lecture, Alan Jette, PT, PhD, challenged physical therapy
professionals to ‘Face Into the Storm’ and boldly tackle the challenges of the
new century. These challenges include a health care system that is increasingly
data driven, and where reimbursement is tied to coordination of care and
performance. To meet these challenges, physical therapists must develop
critical systems skills to collect and examine clinical data to determine what
works for which conditions, for which patients and in different settings in
order to improve clinical practice and meet reimbursement requirements.
A 1-day conference on June 7 in
Boston, cosponsored by APTA and Boston University’s Health & Disability
Research Institute, focuses on the need to develop systems skills as a critical
component of physical therapy practice. The conference agenda includes a
combination of key didactic presentations, case examples of innovative
programs, and opportunities for discussion among attendees.
target audience for the conference includes innovators seeking to advance the
development of systems skills in physical therapy practice.
