Hospital-based Physical Therapy Special Interest Group

The Hospital-Based SIG provides opportunities for networking and learning related to the practice of pediatric physical therapy in acute and intensive care, rehab, clinics, and outpatient services (hospital-based and free-standing).  Our focus includes education and resources for diagnosis-specific patient management, including health promotion.

The HB-SIG hosts meetings at CSM, programming for SoPAC, and teleconferences twice a year.  We share information via the Section on Pediatrics E-News and through emails to our registered members.  We welcome Section members to join the Hospital-Based SIG, participate in these activities, and suggest additional ways we can share resources and information.
