An Update on Our Strategic Priorities

Jun 14, 2016, 01:44 AM by Jeffrey Braxton

ACAPT Strategic Priorities - We are excited that we continue to work on our strategic plan and a recent retreat helped us focus our efforts for this year.  We are sharing this document so that our membership will be informed and continue to provide support and participation.  We are open to suggestions and comments as we move our agenda of excellence forward - http://acapt.org/images/pdfs/STRATEGIC%20PLANNING%20PRIORITIES_04-06-16.pdf

Excellence in Education Task Force Report- In June 2014 the Catherine Worthingham Fellows put forward a motion to the Board of Directors (BoD) of APTA that recommended that the BoD: 1) undertake an objective study of resources needed to assure high quality education in all Doctor of Physical Therapy Education programs and PTA programs; 2) arrange for the resource study to be carried out by a group of qualified investigators independent of the CAPTE or the APTA (e.g., Carnegie, Flexner); and 3) request the CAPTE to extend the time line for accepting major revisions of the accreditation criteria relative to resource needs for faculty, facility and integrative, clinical education until  the findings are available from the recommended resource study and the National Study of Excellence in Physical Therapist Education (Jensen, Hack, Gwyer, Mostrom, Nordstrom).  In response to this motion the APTA BoD put together a Task Force to do a comprehensive analysis of needs for Excellence in Physical Therapy Education and then make a series of recommendations based on that analysis.  The report of the Task Force is now available on the ACAPT website here:  http://acapt.org/images/pdfs/ExcellenceInPTEducationTF-FINAL.pdf

Registration Will Open Soon for the Fall 2016 IPEC Institute: The Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) is pleased to announce the next Faculty Development Institute focused on Interprofessional Education: Building a Framework for Collaboration on October 5-7, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Dulles in Herndon, VA.
