physical therapy practice the future
Physical Therapy PracticeThe Future

APTA Vision 2020

  • 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, functional limitations, and disabilities related to movement, function, and health.
autonomous practice11
“Autonomous Practice”
  • Definition of "Autonomous Practice" Adopted
  • In light of APTA's movement toward realizing Vision 2020, an operational definition of "autonomous practice" was adopted during the March Board of Directors meeting. Vision 2020 states, "Physical therapists will be practitioners of choice in clients’ health networks and will hold all privileges of autonomous practice." Board members agreed, however, that the term "autonomous practice" and the related term "autonomous physical therapist practitioner" needed clarification to ensure that the Association’s efforts toward this realization are consistent.
  • The definitions adopted by the Board are as follows:
  • "Autonomous physical therapist practice is practice

characterized by independent, self-determined, professional judgment and action.

  • "An autonomous physical therapist practitioner, within the scope of practice defined by the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, provides physical therapy services to patients/clients who have direct and unrestricted access to their services, and may refer as appropriate to other health care providers and other professionals and for diagnostic tests."
  • The Board directed APTA staff to identify competencies of the autonomous physical therapist practitioner, using A Normative Model of Physical Therapist Professional Education, the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, other Association documents, and expert member input. A report is due to the November 2001 Board of Directors meeting.
