APTA is offering more than 20 sessions — including some live events — for an affordable price.
Are you ready for APTA's NEXT Conference and Exposition? Because it's ready for you — direct to your computer.
On June 3, APTA launched Virtual NEXT, the online-only version of the popular in-person conference cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtual NEXT sessions — more than 20 courses with related CEUs plus special recorded sessions and live online events—will be available for purchase through July 31. Once purchased, Virtual NEXT access continues until December 31, 2020.
And you probably won't find another conference this affordable: Thanks to the support of sponsors GEICO, HPSO, and Rusk Rehabilitation, APTA is able to offer the entire experience for a member price of $20. Nonmembers can access Virtual Next for $40.
Live Events at Virtual Next
While many sessions have been prerecorded and are ready for viewing at any time, Virtual NEXT is offering live content, too — including events related to telehealth, live Q&A opportunities on payment and post-intensive care syndrome, the Rothstein Roundtable (this year's focus: telehealth), and a virtual town hall with APTA President Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD. Additional live events may be added.
Here's what you need to know about the live events:
You must be a Virtual NEXT registrant 48 hours prior to any live event. Advance registration allows us to create the invitation we'll send to you with instructions on joining the event. And note that live events are limited to 5,000 participants on a first-come, first-served basis, which means that registering for Virtual NEXT doesn't guarantee you'll be able to attend every event.
Also important to know: CEUs are not provided for the live online events.
If you can’t make a live online event or find the event has reached capacity, there's an alternative: Recordings of each will be posted to the Virtual NEXT bundle in the APTA Learning Center within two business days and will be available to all registrants.
