The LIFT Lab Presents at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting – 2022

Multiple members of the LIFT Lab traveled to San Antonio for the Combined Sections Meeting put on by the American Physical Therapy Association in the first week of February. Catherine Quatman-Yates, Timothy Rethorn, and James Crick all gave presentations related to the research they have been conducting in the last year.

Tim presented Physical Activity Variability Over Time in Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury which worked to identify and address the needs of survivors of TBI to help improve and maintain physical activity levels over time. Tim was also involved in the project Factors Perceived to Influence Physical Literacy Among Young Athletes after ACLR.

James presented Quality Improvement in Physical Therapy Literature: A Scoping Review of which Tim, Tyler, and Riley from the LIFT Lab were also involved in. This project evaluated the current use of QI methods in physical therapy research. James also presented Analysis of Acute Care Physical Therapy Treatment Frequency: A Quality Improvement Method to the Madness which worked to identify strengths and weaknesses related to treatment frequency planning and execution at a level-one trauma center.

James was also presented with the APTA Acute Care Mary Sinnott Award for Clinical Excellence which honors an outstanding clinician who has major professional involvement and contributions to the area of acute care physical therapy!

Dr. Quatman-Yates was involved in all the previous projects listed, as well as Patient and Provider Perspectives on Booster Visits after ACL reconstruction: A Novel Delivery Model and Perceived Movement Experience Following Adolescent ACLR: A Mixed Methods Study. She also was a part of multiple educational sessions: Clinical Practice Guidelines in Education: Developing Expert Clinicians with Best Evidence, Must Haves When Treating Across the Concussion Spectrum, and Science Meets Practice: Psychological Impact of the Care Physical Therapists Provide.
