The House of Delegates will meet September 11 and 12 in Washington, D.C., at the Omni Shoreham Hotel as part of APTA’s Centennial Gala Weekend.
The House of Delegates is an APTA policy-making body comprised of voting chapter delegates, non-voting delegates (the Board of Directors and section, assembly, and PTA Caucus delegates), and consultants.
Your Chapter delegates (Lynne, Sue and LaVon) are reviewing the motions that will be voted on and need your input on issues that may have far-reaching implications for the association and for the profession of physical therapy.
Here is one motion that is being considered:
RC 7-21 ADOPT: PRODUCTIVITY STANDARDS IN THE PHYSICAL THERAPY WORKFORCE
That the following be adopted: PRODUCTIVITY STANDARDS IN THE PHYSICAL THERAPY WORKFORCE
The American Physical Therapy Association believes that unreasonable productivity standards can challenge ethical behavior, increase clinician burnout, and prohibit provision of high-quality care. APTA supports productivity standards only when they are balanced with quality patient outcomes, respect clinical judgment, and prioritize patient and clinician well-being.
What do you think? Please email your response to APTA Delaware Chief Delegate, Lynne Sturgill.
