NEW FORMAT! We're using a "flipped classroom" delivery method. Here's how it works: 2 to 3 weeks before the live webinar, you will receive a link to the pre-recorded content presentation. In order to prepare for the Live Webinar, you must review the content so that you will be able to interact with the presenter on April 20th.

On the day of the webinar, the recording will NOT be replayed, but the presenter will provide a brief overview of the content and respond to questions from participants using the chat function. This Q and A session will be approximately 1 hour in length and it will be recorded for anyone who cannot attend live.

Session Description:

The purpose of this course is to build the case for granting physical therapists privileges to order diagnostic imaging followed by an administrative case report of successful implementation of direct access at a hospital-based outpatient clinic. Navigating administrative barriers, securing physical therapy (PT) board approval for ordering of imaging studies, partners with radiologists and tracking of reimbursement data will be discussed. The course will conclude with several case reports in which the use of diagnostic imaging directly influenced clinical decision making.
