  • Last Call for Proposals: CPG/CPA Development

    Member teams that want to apply for financial support from APTA to develop clinical practice guidelines and clinical practice appraisals are reminded that the deadline for applications is next week, September 15.

    Proposals for CPG/CPA development must focus on clinical practice areas that are important and relevant to the practice of physical therapy. The proposal must be supported and submitted by an APTA section. Each proposal will be considered individually and will be awarded in part or in full depending on the priorities of the association and the strength of the proposal.

    For more information or for a copy of the proposal submission document, contact Anita Bemis-Dougherty, director, Practice Department, at anitabemis-dougherty@apta.org or 800/999-2782, ext. 3176.

    WebMD Description of Physical Therapy Updated for Accuracy

    If you visit WebMD's page describing physical therapy, thank some of your member colleagues who over the last month notified APTA that the content describing the role of the physical therapist included inaccuracies and omissions. APTA contacted WebMD requesting they revise their content, and staff provided them with suggested revisions. The page now provides a more accurate description of physical therapists.
