IMPORTANT Research Survey: Physical Therapist Scope of Practice: Referring for Radiographic Imaging

In 2016, the APTA House of Delegates voted overwhelmingly in support (93% in favor) of pursuing legislation allowing physical therapists to refer patients directly to a radiologist for imaging. Multiple legislative efforts are currently underway to obtain, advance, or protect this referral authority. However, establishing current practice regarding physical therapy practice is essential in supporting these legislative efforts. As such, the below survey aims to explore how therapists currently practice when they determine a patient is in need of musculoskeletal imaging. Your response is key to advancing our profession, and we would greatly appreciate your completion of our survey, which takes approximately 3 minutes.

University of Pittsburgh Research Study - Identifying which Patient Condition and Comorbidities are Optimal for Treatment via Telehealth

With COVID, physical therapists have utilized telehealth with no published rules for patient safety and which patients are optimally served with the relatively new treatment mode. This survey is designed to help identify which patient conditions and comorbidities are optimal for treatment via telehealth. Another goal is to identify which patient conditions should continue to be treated in a clinic setting for optimal patient safety.
This survey is for PTs who have treated persons with vestibular disorders via telehealth. Thank you for you consideration.
