2015 PASIG Revalidation Study

An assembled team of members of the Orthopaedic Section, APTA, Performing Arts Special Interest Group (PASIG) and identified practitioners in the sub-specialty field of performing arts physical therapy, are working to revalidate the 2004 Description of Specialized Clinical Practice (DSCP) in Physical Therapy for Performing Artists.

By completing this survey you will be helping to revalidate the unique attributes that need to be taken into consideration for treating the performing artist population. You will be asked to assess each competency/skill/attribute in three ways: 1.) Frequency of use, 2.) Importance of skill, and 3.) Level of Mastery required. Demographic information, such as years of practice and practice setting, will also be requested in order to assess the generalizability of the survey responses across the sub-specialty field. The survey is estimated to take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Once you exit the survey, you will not be able to re-enter at a later time.

The intent of this revalidation process is three-fold: 1.) To provide current practice guidelines for practitioners in the sub-specialty field of Performing Arts Physical Therapy, 2.) To transform the 2004 DSCP to a Description of Advanced Specialized Practice (DASP), a document of skills, attributes, and competencies appropriate for fellowship level curriculum and expertise, and 3.) To create a Description of Fellowship Practice (DFP) in Performing Arts Physical Therapy for fellowship curriculum development.

Thank you in advance for participating in this survey. We recognize that your time is valuable.
