The physical therapy profession’s preeminent guide to practice has taken on a new format, added new information and resources, updated others, and is now ready for use. The new online-only APTA Guide to Physical Therapist Practice offers more dynamic content while continuing to deliver the most comprehensive description of an evolving profession—and it’s free to the public for a very limited time.
“It was a long process, but we did want to get it right,” said Lisa Saladin, PT, PhD, who contributed to the revision of the Guide as former chair and current member of the Board Oversight Guide Work Group. In an APTA video dispatch, Saladin describes how the revisions moved from staff to volunteer subject matter experts to the work group. The end result: a “really dynamic” experience that will deliver current information, and allow users to dive more deeply into evidence-based practice resources and in-depth visual supports through direct online access to PTNow and other offerings. Users will “feel the similarities, but they’re going to see the differences,” Saladin said.
