Dear Colleagues,

The Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy (AACPT) is making great strides to advance the preparation of students and clinicians to meet the needs of patients with acute medical conditions. At the same time, there are limitations in acute care clinical placements for students, absent or limited acute care education within academic programs, a limited presence in the education arena, and a need to grow residencies and fellowships that address acute care physical therapy. AACPT identified these voids and created the Education Task Force to address the disparities between the classroom and the clinic.

Developed by the AACPT Education Task Force, this conference will provide strategies and skills to overcome these challenges. Our hope is that it will grow the number of clinicians and educators who are prepared to advance acute care physical therapy in our clinics, in our academic environments, and in society.

Participants in this conference will learn about developing resources for improving the academic and clinical preparation of PTs and PTAs, strategies to elevate acute care practice within your community, and will improve their skills for didactic and clinical education with tangible strategies for implementation in academic and clinical settings.

I hope you will join me May 18-20 in Indianapolis as we work together to advance acute care physical therapy education. Together, we can help improve our specialty to create the best patient outcomes possible.

Sincerely,

Kristin Curry Greenwood, PT, DPT, MS, GCS
Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy Education Task Force Chair
