Imaging Education Manual now available

The Imaging Education Manual has been created to facilitate the continued development of imaging instruction in physical therapist education and to heighten awareness among academic and clinical faculty of the legislative and regulatory issues the physical therapy profession is facing. The IEM provides resource information to assist faculty in curriculum planning and imaging instruction in both academic and clinical venues. The ultimate goal is that all physical therapist professional educational programs provide appropriate imaging education based on sound evidence, current APTA positions/policies, and projected future practice models as endorsed by the APTA Vision Statement and other association documents.
