APTA is developing a new clinical practice guideline on physical therapist management of Parkinson disease, 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 July 14.
Funded entirely by APTA, the draft CPG covers topics ranging from aerobic, flexibility, and community-based exercise to resistance, balance, gait, and task-specific training. The resource was developed by a volunteer development group that included member expert PTs and a neurologist, and was based on systematic reviews of current scientific literature, clinical information, and accepted approaches related to the physical therapist management of PD.
APTA has created a webpage that links to the CPG and allows visitors to provide comments.
