  • PTJ Special Series Inspires Editor in Chief to Consider Returning to Clinical Practice

    "I am so excited by the December issue and these 10 articles that I'm really considering changing my path and going out to see if I can help develop acute care specialization and become a practicing clinician again," says PTJ Editor in Chief Rebecca Craik, PT, PhD, FAPTA, at the conclusion of the latest Craikcast.

The group also discusses quality improvement research, a key topic of the articles in the February edition of the critical care special series. The first part of the series was published in the December 2012 issue.
