  • Clinical Instructor Input Wanted on Clinical Reasoning Skills

    The American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT)  is taking a close look at clinical reasoning skills in physical therapist doctoral education programs and needs to hear from clinical instructors.

    ACAPT's Clinical Reasoning Curricula and Assessment Research Consortium has posted a survey for clinical instructors, the results of which will inform its study titled "Exploration of Clinical Reasoning in Doctor of Physical Therapy Education." The consortium estimates that the survey takes about 5–10 minutes to complete.

    Names and other identifiers will not be associated with the information received from the survey. All information will be stored on the principal investigator's university-issued password-protected computer and stored in a locked office.

    • There is such a wide range of talent coming out of PT schools right now. Some students who are ready to take on a caseload and other students in their second or third affiliation who have not even the basic knowledge of how to do AROM testing.

    • In the sectin about credentials... PTA was not an option. PTAs are clinical instructors too.
