Occupational and Physical Therapy Series: Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) Update On Survey Results for Telehealth within Physical Therapy

The use and prevalence of telehealth are of great interest within the practice of physical therapy. The extent to which the PT Compact influences the growth of and opportunity for telehealth across state borders may have a significant impact on consumer access. Gathering and understanding compact privilege holders’ opinions on telehealth and how they are using it may provide insight into the future of telehealth within physical therapy. This session will explore the findings from the FSBPT online survey of more than 300 PT clinicians with active compact privileges in 2022.

Educational Level: Introductory

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify how the PT Compact facilitates physical therapy telehealth across jurisdictional lines
  • Identify physical therapy telehealth trends during the pre-pandemic phase, height of the pandemic phase, and the resolving-pandemic phase
