Download Now - APTA Home Health Clinical Ladder and Preceptor Programs Resource Guide 

Many home health agencies are re-organizing how they utilize rehabilitation clinicians in order to provide quality care while managing the financial changes instituted by CMS.
One strategy for optimizing the role of physical therapists and their respective skills is to develop Clinical Ladder and Preceptor Programs. These tools encourage best practice habits from PT staff and offer a non-traditional clinical development tract beyond management training and promotion. 
The APTA Home Health Section Clinical Ladder and Preceptor Program Resource Guide 
  • Provides employers with a template for developing and customizing their own programs 
  • Is designed for employees as a voluntary system 
  • Creates rewards/benefits for clinical excellence
  • Provides a tiered framework for professional advancement
  • Is a great tool to improve employee satisfaction and retention for those not interested in a traditional management role.  
This guide is FREE for Home Health members and only $10 for non-members. Click here to download your copy now!

A Movement for Movement: APTA campaign promotes physical activity and role of PTs and PTAs 

The new #ChoosePT public awareness campaign has been launched to convey that most Americans aren't getting the recommended amount of physical activity — a health crisis that was present before COVID-19 – and shouldn't wait for the pandemic to end before being addressed.

It is a hopeful call to Americans to increase physical activity and seek help from PTs and PTAs to overcome physical activity barriers.
