Leadership Competencies for Physical Therapists: A Delphi Determination

"Leadership is linked to patient experience and quality of care. Some health care professions have identified leadership competencies to guide curriculum design. Yet, the physical therapy profession lacks explicit leadership competencies for the point-of-care professional. The academic community is inconsistent including leadership development within Doctor of Physical Therapy entry-level education or residency/fellowship training. This project aimed to fill this knowledge gap and inform the conversation on leadership competencies essential for new graduate physical therapists while clarifying whether expectations differ for those physical therapists with additional experience who do not hold formal leadership positions."
