A new set of resources on the APTA website can help physical therapists (PTs) make the case for the PT's role in an emergency department (ED) and gain a better understanding of the skills required to make that role effective.
Developed by member experts in ED practice, the new tools are available on the association's Physical Therapist Practice in the Emergency Department webpage, and include information on getting started in the ED, billing and documentation, and resources that demonstrate the benefit of PT services in the ED. The resources were compiled in response to a 2012 House of Delegates directive to develop additional materials to support the role of PTs in the ED.
APTA Practice Department staff members are continually enhancing website offerings and encourage members to contact them with ideas or suggestions for other toolkits or resources.
