In this episode I am joined by Dr. Kyle Ridgeway, PT, DPT and Ann Wendel, PT, ATC, CMTPT. We are discussing our upcoming talk at the American Physical Therapy Association’s Combined Section Meeting in Indianapolis on Thursday February 5, 2015 at 11:00.
Our talk is titled Direct Access Through the Continuum of Care. Our vision for this session is more of a free flowing discussion versus a traditional lecture. So, if you will be attending CSM this year please come and be prepared to ask questions and be a part of the discussion!
During the session we will be covering the following “big topic” ideas in the world of direct access:
1) What does direct access mean?
2) What is a referral source?
3) How does direct access look in different settings?
4) What are the barriers to direct access in the day to day performance of our work?
It is important to note that we will be touching briefly on legislative side of direct access but this session will be more about the direct access mindset.
If you are attending CSM I hope to see you there! If you are not attending but still want to hear more about direct access listen to the podcast here and/or follow the hashtag #DirectAccessPT on Twitter.
