Second Innovation 2.0 Learning Lab Coming July 12: Clinical Care Pathways, From Acute to Postacute Care
APTA members will have another opportunity to hear firsthand from physical therapy innovators pursuing new, creative models of care when the association hosts the second of 4 online “Learning Lab” events July 12, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm ET.
The July 12 event will focus on clinical care pathways and transitions of care from acute care hospitals to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and other postacute care settings. The project was developed as part of the APTA Innovation 2.0 program.
Conducted through the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and led by Robin Marcus, PT, PhD, the project examines a partnership between a contract provider of physical therapist services to local SNFs and the University of Utah physical therapy program .The project has developed evidence-based care pathways for patients with hip fracture, total hip arthroplasty, and total knee arthroplasty. In this model, physical therapists are working collaboratively within the health care system to improve value-driven outcomes.
