APTA is developing a new clinical practice guideline on telerehabilitation in physical therapist practice, 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 3. To review the CPG and provide comments, visit the comments webpage and follow the instructions.
Funded entirely by APTA, the draft CPG covers the impact of, preparation for, and implementation of telerehabilitation. The resource was developed by a volunteer guideline development group that included member expert physical therapists and physiotherapists from five different countries, a physiatrist, and a consumer representative, with methodological assistance from health care nonprofit ECRI.
The guidelines are based on a systematic review of current scientific literature, clinical information, and accepted approaches to the use of telerehabilitation in physical therapist practice.
