Be careful what you post on Facebook or other social media sites.  This physician is under fire for her comments on a patient being late.  Just use common sense!

Vision 2020 will be here before we know it!  There is even a site now through APTA looking beyond 2020. Are we on track to meeting this dream in 7 yrs?  I think we have a long ways to go.  Easy to say negative things from the outside since I am not a participating member in the task force.  I can tell you from my volunteer days in the Virginia Physical Therapy Association, these individuals do alot for our profession!  It is easier said than done.

Express your opinion and read more comments on the Moving Forward Blog here. You can also find more information at it’s site here, and to refresh, here is the the vision sentence:

By 2020, physical therapy will be provided by physical therapists who are doctors of physical therapy, recognized by consumers and other health care professionals as the practitioners of choice to whom consumers have direct access for the diagnosis of, interventions for, and prevention of impairments, activity limitations, participation restrictions, and environmental barriers related to movement, function, and health.
