The PT's Role in Concussion Management

Thank you for your interest in serving on the State Representative Network for the Sports Section, APTA.

Since becoming its own committee in the Section, the goals of the State Representative Network include monitoring state legislative activities and serving as a liaison between the Section and its members. Each state’s representative within the Network provides continued contact with the APTA House of Delegates and the APTA State Chapters. This provides the Section with an up-to-date assessment of the legislative actions of each state as well as local state events.

Representatives maintain contact with their respective delegate and State Chapter and submit brief quarterly reports outlining relevant issues. The reports include the following:

  • State legislative action with emphasis on topics related to the Section. This should include proposed bills as well as those that have recently been enacted. Relevant topics include PTs involvement in concussion management, athletic trainer/chiropractic legislation, direct access, licensure changes, or mobilization/manipulation issues.
  • Events or activities (e.g. fun-run, blood drives, etc) sponsored by a physical therapy group or APTA State Chapter.
  • Lists of state physical therapy schools and changes that may be occurring.
  • Recognition of accomplishments (professional/personal) of local physical therapists.

Much more information can be included in the report; the above list is meant to serve as a starting point only. Some of the information from these reports will be included in the Section’s newsletter and posted on the Sports Section’s webpage.

  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Mississippi

The following responsibilities have been established to ensure successful completion
