So what exactly is the physical therapist's (PT's) professional scope of practice, and how would you go about describing it as a definition rather than a list of things PTs do? Now's your chance to weigh in.
All APTA members are invited to provide input on the APTA Board of Directors' efforts to create a broad definition of the PT professional scope of practice. The idea behind the project is to create a global description of practice that aims to be an overall description rather than a set of procedures and functions.
Members can evaluate and comment on the draft scope and the guiding principles behind it by visiting an APTA webpage set aside for the survey. Deadline for responses is September 11. Send your completed surveys to Practice-Dept@apta.org.
