Formatted abstract
Effective continuing education methods are necessary not only to assist clinicians in maintaining currency in practice, but also for training physical therapists to advance in rapidly changing scopes of practice. In various parts of the world, physical therapists are practicing as specialists, as extended-scope practitioners, or as the first-contact practitioners in the previously traditional medical settings such as hospital emergency departments and hospital orthopedic, pediatric, and neurosurgical clinics. Health care delivery is changing, and the changes at all levels require effective methods of continuing professional development. Cleland and colleagues’ research is timely, and it is hopefully the beginning of many future studies to evaluate best methods for delivery of effective continuing education for physical therapists.
