During APTA’s House of Delegates in June, two RCs passed that affect PTAs. RC 14 allows a PTA to directly supervise a PTA student and RC 3 opens the door for PTs to dictate physical therapy care to health care practitioners other than PTAs. There is still much to be decided regarding the details of RC 3, so keep your ears open. The PTWA PTA SIG has scheduled two meetings to discuss the details of these decisions. The first will take place at PTWA Fall Conference at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center during the SIG Roundtable Discussions on Saturday, October 29 from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Breakfast is included for conference registrants and may be purchased on site for non-registrants. The second will be another statewide video conference on November 2, 2011. Future announcements will be made but both meetings will require PTA SIG membership, which costs $10 for APTA members, $20 for nonmembers.
