If you haven't checked out PTNow lately, you haven't checked out PTNow. (Editor's note: PTNow content was incoporated into apta.org in June 2020.)

APTA's online evidence-based practice resource has been updated and expanded significantly. Just how significantly? Additions include:

  • 92 new clinical practice guidelines (and more than 80 updates to existing ones)
  • More than 50 new tests and measures, including new resources on pain and cognitive impairment
  • 22 new clinical summaries
  • 20 new Cochrane reviews

And getting at those resources is now easier than ever, thanks to a  retooled search function that's both user-friendly and expansive, providing members with easy access to journals and other resources relevant to clinical practice. The PTNow site has also simplified its access to its CPG+ collection, which provides expert appraisal of selected CPGs.

"The new resources at PTNow enrich offerings to clinicians in some truly meaningful ways," said Anne Reicherter, PT, DPT, PhD, a board-certified orthopaedic clinical specialist and APTA’s senior practice specialist overseeing the PTNow expansion. "And it's not just about the new material—updates to earlier clinical summaries on subjects such as total knee arthroplasty, falls, traumatic brain injury, and unilateral vestibular dysfunction will connect members with some of the latest and best evidence out there."
