APTA sections have until March 17 to submit proposals for clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) and clinical practice appraisals (CPAs) for possible financial support from the association.
Through financial support the association hopes to better enable physical therapists (PTs) to consistently use best practices to improve the quality of life of their patients and clients. The program will provide structure, process, and resources for the development of clinical practice documents and other high-quality evidence summaries that translate research into PT practice.
Proposals for CPG/CPA development must be supported and submitted by an APTA section, and must focus on clinical practice areas that are important and relevant to the practice of physical therapy. Each proposal will be considered individually and will be awarded in part or in full depending on the strength of the proposal and the priorities of the association.
Proposals for the current review cycle are due March 17. For more information or a copy of the proposal submission document, e-mail Anita Bemis-Dougherty, director, practice department, or call 800/999-2782, ext. 3176.
