The Future of PTA Education and Physical Therapy Practice: PTA Education Summit
The APTA Academy of Education is conducting a Summit on the future of PTA education. The summit will address current challenges in PTA education, with the goal of formulating prioritized recommendations for future work that will prepare PTAs to better meet the demands of contemporary physical therapy thus strengthening the PT/PTA team.
If you or someone in your program or organization can provide informed input to this critical dialog, we urge participation. Detailed information on participant expectations and qualifications for this multiphase Summit can be found at our Summit website. Broad and diverse representation will lead to Summit outcomes that can influence PTA scope of work and, potentially, the elements of physical therapist practice that PTAs support.
Please consider participation after visiting the Summit website - as well as forwarding this information to your colleagues whose experience and viewpoints can inform and influence these efforts. Thank you in advance for your consideration and any assistance you can provide.
