$1 Million APTA Gift Helps Fund The Nation's First Physical Therapist Center On Health Services Training And Research

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) congratulates Linda Resnik, PT, PhD, and Brown University, along with collaborating institutions Boston University (BU) and the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt), who were recently selected to receive the Foundation for Physical Therapy's Center of Excellence (COE) Award. This $2.5 million award will allow Brown to establish the nation's first physical therapist-focused Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR). APTA gifted $1 million to the Foundation to fund the COE Award.

The mission of CoHSTAR is to train physical therapists (PTs) to conduct health services and health policy research and to expand the number of PTs who specialize in this research. CoHSTAR was developed in response to a lack of sufficient data for physical therapy in health services/health policy research as well as a shortage of PTs with the skills to conduct it.

"Physical therapy has the power to transform the lives of millions of people, from the very young to the very old," said APTA President Paul A. Rockar Jr, PT, DPT, MS. "Researchers who can develop an essential body of knowledge that shows the efficacy of physical therapy will help us achieve our vision of transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience. We fully expect the research to change the face of physical therapy and ultimately to improve patient outcomes."

CoHSTAR will train postdoctoral fellows and visiting scientists, led by Brown, in 3 foundational areas of health services research: analysis of large data sets, rehabilitation outcomes measurement, and implementation science and quality assurance. BU will facilitate the development of health services research curricular materials to be used in physical therapy and rehabilitation graduate programs during CoHSTAR's Summer Institutes on Health Services Research. CoHSTAR's Pilot Studies Core, led by Pitt, will provide the opportunities for PT researchers to develop innovative approaches for addressing important research questions in health services research. Together, these components of CoHSTAR will dramatically increase PT health services research capacity.
