Please note that we have moved our Listservs to the
Groups.io platform!

What are Listservs?

Listservs are general purpose email lists that are great for asking questions, sharing interests, and spreading information quickly to your peers. When asking or replying to a question on any of the members-only APTA Acute Care listservs, you are automatically connected to all listserv members through one, central email address. 

APTA Acute Care Listservs

Since the Groups.io listserv is still in its early-stages, the APTA Acute Care currently offers two groups that all members can join. In order to participate and associate with these listservs, you must be an APTA Acute Care member. Those who request to join and are not an APTA Acute Care member will be denied. The AcutePT listservs allow clinicians to easily contact each other to share information, protocols, research resources, evidence, and updates on clinical practice specific to acute care physical therapy.
