APTA Public Policy Priorities

2021-2022 Public Policy Goals

APTA urges Congress and the Administration to:

  • Improve patient outcomes by eliminating barriers to health care services.
  • Enact policies that empower all people regardless of where they are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age to live healthy and independent lives.
  • Improve patient outcomes and patient satisfaction by improving health services delivery.
  • Prioritize research and clinical innovation to advance the science, effectiveness, and efficacy of physical therapist evaluation and management to optimize patient health, well-being, and recovery.
