The profession's definitive description of practice has moved online -- no software to buy, no disk to install, no updates to download, and it's FREE to APTA members. Now you can access the entire contents of the former CD Interactive Guide to Physical Therapist Practice With Catalog of Tests and Measures on the Web, at http://guidetoptpractice.apta.org.
The new online Guide is the digital version of APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, Revised Second Edition -- and much, much more! An indispensable tool for the cutting-edge physical therapist, the online Guide has an easy-to-use, hyperlinked format plus:
- Annotations on the reliability and validity of nearly 500 specific tests or measures.
- More than 1,500 references for articles on reliability and validity, linked to MEDLINE abstracts and free access to full-text articles published in journals that are hosted on the HighWire Press platform.
- Robust search capability, including the ability to search on keywords, ICD-9-CM codes, and key concepts-and the ability to perform searches using more than one term.
- Social bookmarking.
Hosted by HighWire Press, the online Guide is available FREE to APTA members. The online Guide is available to non-APTA members as an individual annual subscription, to institutions as an annual site license, or via a 24-hour individual access pass. APTA members can login for FREE access 24/7/365.
The Interactive Guide to Physical Therapist Practice Version 1.1 migrated from a CD format to the HighWire Press Web platform in April 2010.
The online Guide will be revised over the next several months, to include terminology consistent with the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Heath (ICF) and the addition of 2 new cardiovasculary/pulmonary practice patterns.
