APTA sections have until May 2 to nominate individuals for an association program that will help them develop clinical practice guidelines (CPGs). Successful nominees will be invited to participate in a free July workshop that will address both the big picture and nuts-and-bolts of CPG creation.
The July 23-25 workshop will be held at APTA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, and will include a pre-workshop assignment, presentation of a CPG development methodology, and interactive discussion on how to apply the methodology to successfully develop CPGs for the physical therapist profession. This is the third year the association has offered the program.
Sections interested in participating must submit nominations for a guideline development team leader and 2 to 3 team members who have defined a key clinical question or topic that the section has identified as important to its membership. APTA may fund as many as 3 individuals from each guideline development team, and sections can nominate more than 1 team to attend the workshop. More details, including consideration criteria and the nomination forms, are available at APTA's CPG workshop webpage.
