President's Message

Wishing Everyone a Safe & Happy Memorial Day!

 

Please take a moment to remember the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to our nation.

As the country continues its current struggle to bring our nation out from under the pandemic health emergency, take time to reflect, give thanks, and regenerate for the work ahead.  We as physical therapists and physical therapist assistants remain #BetterTogether as we lean into the challenges ahead. 

"Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose."  -Dillon Panthers, Friday Night Lights

As always, be vigilant.  Be prepared.  Stay informed.

Sincerely,

Dee Kornetti
President

COVID-19 Core Outcomes Measures Feedback Requested

The Cross-Academy COVID-19 Core Outcome Measures Task Force is working to identify the fewest tests and measures that can capture key constructs related to signs and symptoms for the most patients with COVID-19 across all settings and functional levels to guide patient care, justify therapy services, and improve ease for later research. As you know, they are currently looking for volunteers to help identify any key tests and measures that capture the identified constructs that they may have missed during their expedited literature review process. A link to the 10 minute survey has been posted in the COVID-19 Hub Community on the APTA website, with responses requested by May 26th.
