About this Course
"The physical therapy profession’s commitment to society is to promote optimal health and function in individuals by pursuing excellence in practice.”
(Preamble, APTA Standards of Practice for Physical Therapy)
A number of APTA documents serve as a statement of the conditions and performances that we deem essential to the provision of high quality physical therapy service. MN APTA, a recognized leader in quality improvement, intentionally utilizes these documents as a foundation for the chapter’s professional practice review process, and encourages their use for the peer review process in your own clinical practice. Upon completion of this course, Physical Therapist participants may submit an application to become an MN APTA Peer Reviewer.
By the end of this course, each participant will be able to:
Identify the key APTA documents and Minnesota laws that serve as resources for physical therapist practice and peer professional practice review
Describe why documenting according to professional standards will lead to improved patient advocacy, improved overall quality of care, and a high level of professionalism
Employ key APTA documents and Minnesota laws to critically review documentation to identify areas of strength and weakness
Communicate the findings of a mock peer review, including the resources which support those findings
