DPTA Needs Your Input

Your Chapter delegates are getting ready for the House of Delegates in Chicago June 8-10 and need your input on motions that will be voted on.

The House of Delegates (House) is an APTA policy-making body comprised of voting chapter delegates, non-voting delegates (the Board of Directors and section, assembly, and PTA Caucus delegates), and consultants.

The House meets annually for 3 successive days each spring, during which time delegates make decisions on issues that may have far-reaching implications for the association and for the profession of physical therapy.

The following is an example of a motion that will be voted on this year:

RC 62-19 ADOPT: NALOXONE AVAILABILITY WHERE PHYSICAL THERAPIST SERVICES ARE PROVIDED

That the following be adopted:

NALOXONE AVAILABILITY WHERE PHYSICAL THERAPIST SERVICES ARE PROVIDED

The American Physical Therapy Association supports physical therapy services having naloxone accessible to be administered to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose occurring on or around locations where physical therapist services are provided, in accordance with recommendations from the Surgeon General of the United States.
