APTA is developing a new clinical practice guideline (CPG) on total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and your help is needed.
The CPG is now in the public review phase of its development, and APTA is asking for public comment. But hurry—deadline for comments is January 3, 2020.
Funded entirely by APTA, the draft CPG covers topics ranging from preoperative exercise to physical therapy discharge planning and assessment of outcomes. The resource was developed by a volunteer development group that included member expert PTs from many of the Academies, an orthopedic surgeon, a nurse, and a consumer, and was based on systematic reviews of current scientific and clinical information related to the PT management of TKA.
