Conducting research amidst a pandemic

Over 50 PT academic researchers recently joined ACAPT's Research-Intensive Programs in Physical Therapy (RIPPT) consortium for a meeting to discuss how PT programs are conducting research given the challenges of COVID-19.

Fortunately, several programs have figured out creative ways to hold in-person research, while minimizing the risk factors.  For minors and others who cannot come in for research, some institutions have sent iPads to the parents and asked them to video their children.

Presenters included:

  • Beth Brown, PT, PhD from University of Washington
  • James Irrgang, PT, PhD from University of Pittsburgh

Review the slides from the presenters with research tips during a pandemic.  You can see the Zoom recording below:
