Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
F. A. Davis Company’s comprehensive networking and online continuing education resource for physical therapy professionals—DavisPTnetwork — has recruited several bloggers to post key learning points live from APTA 2010 on the DavisPTnetwork website.
Held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA, the APTA 2010 conference will run from June 16 through June 19. The blogs will be posted at http://www.DavisPTnetwork.com/network.
This program is part of a major DavisPTnetwork membership campaign and fund-raising effort for the Foundation for Physical Therapy. Based on thresholds met during the membership drive, DavisPTnetwork will make a donation to the Foundation for Physical Therapy for new members who register before July 31, 2010, up to a maximum of $5,000. There is no cost to join DavisPTnetwork, and currently there are over 2,000 members.
“We’re pleased to be able to help the Foundation for Physical Therapy raise both awareness and funds for the important PT research their organization supports,” says Margaret Biblis, F.A. Davis Publisher Professions/Medicine. “In addition, by working together with the Foundation to blog the key learning points from APTA sessions, we’ll help update PT professionals who can’t attend the sessions about the latest evidence to inform practice in the PT profession.” She adds, “This is yet another way F. A. Davis demonstrates its continuing commitment to the PT community.”
The mission of the Foundation for Physical Therapy the principal and only nationwide physical therapy foundation—is to fund research that supports the development of evidence-based physical therapist practice, enhance the quality of physical therapist services for patients and clients, and increase the number of physical therapist researchers. The Foundation was established in 1979 as a national, independent, nonprofit corporation to support the physical therapy profession's research needs in three areas: scientific research, clinical research, and health services research.
Launched in February 2009, DavisPTnetwork provides PT professionals from around the world with a unique opportunity for social networking and professional collaboration, as well as online continuing education. Membership to the DavisPTnetwork social networking community is free. Additionally, there is a wide range of affordable (starting at $45 per course), peer-reviewed courses offered at the site. With support available 24/7, PTs and PTAs can take these online continuing education courses at their convenience.
