LIVE from Combined Sections Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Justin Moore joins me to discuss the American Physical Therapy Association’s initiatives for 2017! Dr. Justin Moore, PT, DPT, a physical therapist and veteran of both the profession and the association with more than 20 years' experience, leads the American Physical Therapy Association in the role of CEO. He has been with APTA for 18 years and has held numerous positions, including executive vice president of public affairs, leading the public policy agenda and payment and communications departments, leading its federal and state affairs advocacy departments and serving as the association's lead lobbyist on Capitol Hill.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The American Physical Therapy Association’s focus for 2017

-APTA’s renewed focus on building partnerships with others in the healthcare ecosystem

-The role of advocacy within the physical therapy profession

-Updates on APTA’s progress in new legislative initiatives and the regulatory environment

-How can diverse sections within physical therapy work together to promote the profession as a whole

-And so much more!

 

There are many opportunities for physical therapists to participate in advocacy and both individually and collectively impact the profession. Justin notes, “One of the things that physical therapy has is strength in numbers.”

 

The physical therapy profession nurtures ideal qualities for strong advocacy. Justin notes, “We are naturals at advocacy. We advocate for patients on a daily basis so advocating on that macro level and state capitols and on Capitol Hill is a great function for physical therapists.”

 

Dr. Moore’s advice to budding physical therapists is to utilize their energy and drive to, “Take more risks early.”
