Strategies for Widespread Implementation of Hospital-Based Direct Access

Session Description:

This webinar is designed for hospital/health systems rehabilitation department administrators, and APTA Chapter Board of Directors and legislative/practice affairs committee chairs with interest in the patient direct access model. The Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association implemented an initiative to promote hospital/health systems adoption and implementation of the patient direct access to physical therapist services practice model. Over a 3 year timeframe these efforts resulted in the number of state of Wisconsin hospitals/health systems approving this practice model, increasing from 28 to over 75 facilities. This webinar will describe the direct access adoption initiative including strategies, resources, benefits, challenges and lessons learned.
