The APTA Vision Statement adopted in 2013 looks to shape the practice of physical therapy by creating practitioners who can help people improve their social and family roles through optimal movement. As experts in the area of human movement, we must use literature to maintain our expertise. Practitioners need access to and the ability to openly discuss advances in practice and new concepts as they apply to the practice. A lack of accessibility, clinical and personal time, or knowledge of article synopsis can hinder the process of synthesizing new literature and seeing patterns in the larger body of evidence. This session will review the cardiovascular and pulmonary literature published within the past year. Participants will gain a broad overview of cardiovascular and pulmonary research not specific to any health condition. The speakers will highlight key themes and sentinel articles, with an opportunity for discussion.
1. Report and interpret new literature surrounding the examination of or treatment for cardiovascular and pulmonary health conditions.
2. Compare prior knowledge and practice to ideas and concept in current literature.
3. Discuss with peers the application and impact these studies can have on current and future practice.
