A new website launched by APTA will support the profession’s effort to eliminate fraud, abuse, and waste in the health care system. The APTA Center for Integrity in Practice website houses information on how PTs, PTAs, and students can continue to uphold the profession's high standards. Resources include information and supporting evidence on the recently released Choosing Wisely® list of "5 Things Physical Therapists and Patients Should Question;” a primer on preventing fraud, abuse, and waste; a free course on compliance; and other information on regulation and payment systems, evidence-based practice, ethics, professionalism, and fraud prevention. The site is part of the association's Integrity in Practice Campaign, a broad initiative that seeks to position physical therapy as a leader in responsible patient-centered care. Plans are for the website to continue expanding its offerings, and APTA is seeking partners to share resources, work together on advocacy, and possibly develop joint educational offerings to bring the message of practice integrity to the widest possible audience.
