INAPTA #Choose PT Task Force

Highlights

Do you have a passion for working with patients or clients who are challenged with chronic pain?

Do you want to see physical therapy have a stronger voice in Indiana when it comes to discussions about how best to care for those with chronic pain?

Can you envision the role of physical therapy in preventing the transition from acute to chronic pain?

The INAPTA #Choose PT Task Force will be focusing on the following over the next 6 months:

  1. Explore opportunities for how our profession can be a part of the State’s conversation on how best to manage the care of patients with chronic pain.
  2. Describe the role of physical therapy in the prevention of chronic pain conditions within the context of our current healthcare system.
  3. Work with the INAPTA Public Relations Committee to generate a media campaign centered around the role of physical therapy in managing the challenges of chronic pain.
  4. Consider applying for an APTA Community Awareness Grant to assist with the media campaign listed above.

If you are interested in joining the Task Force, please contact Emily Slaven, PT, PhD at slavene@uindy.edu.

Maximize the lifelong health, function, and well-being of people in Indiana and advance the practice of physical therapy through advocacy, collaboration, and education.
