  • Is It Really About Autonomous PT Practice?

    My post last month, ''The DPT: How Did They Miss This?'' has generated numerous comments on the ADVANCE website, almost entirely from readers who agreed with its content. One exception, however, was an assistant professor of physical therapy who stated that making the DPT a mandatory entry-level degree was necessary for the pursuit of autonomous ...

  • Proving the Value of Physical Therapy

    This guest blog post was written by Jerry Henderson, PT, vice president of clinical community at Clinicient in Portland, Ore. I personally believe that our profession is an excellent value.

  • PT Day on Capitol Hill

    The morning of June 4 started very early for more than 1,000 dedicated attendees at the American Physical Therapy Association's NEXT 2015 Conference & Exposition in National Harbor, Md.

  • Coming Up NEXT -- The 2015 APTA Annual Conference

    As many ADVANCE readers are likely aware, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) last year rebranded its traditional ''Annual Conference & Exposition'' as simply ''NEXT''. The APTA website stated at the time, ''It's a name change, but more than that it's a commitment to making APTA's June conference about looking into the future of ...
  • APTA Membership: Cost vs. Benefit

    I've been reading the responses to my various blogs over the past few weeks. The responses seem to be echoing what I've been saying. Hardly anyone has had anything to say in support of the APTA. Many explain why they don't belong. The general consensus is the APTA doesn't represent the majority of PTs and PTAs. No one wrote in support of its ...

  • It's Time to Renew My APTA Membership

    It's that time of year again. I just opened my mail and found my APTA renewal notice. For a mere $585, I can continue to receive all the benefits of membership.

  • Whose Profession Is It?

    Two weeks ago I attended a Texas Physical Therapy Association meeting. The speaker was Mike Conners, president of the TPTA. Last week I discussed my belief the APTA is too focused on issues, such as direct access, that do not affect the majority of PTs and PTAs. Mike made another point that needs to be considered. We all know that physician's ...

  • What About the Rest of Us?

    Last week, I went to a meeting of the Texas Physical Therapy Association Southeast District. Mike Conners, the TPTA president, was speaking. His topic was the future of physical therapy and increasing awareness of legislative action in the Texas congress. He touched on all the usual topics: direct access, reimbursement for outpatient services, ...
