Jenn attended the State Policy and Payment Forumn in Detroit with representatives from states across the country. Participants discussed challenges faced by the profession at the state level given that our Practice Acts and licenses are administered by the state as opposed to the federal government. One of the big issues discussed was the regulation of dry needling and currently there are several states that are facing lawsuits similar to what we are seeing in Colorado.
Jenn is also chair of the Sunset Task force for the Colorado APTA chapter. The task force will be working closely with DORA and the government affairs committee to pass the Sunset bill this coming legislative session. This is the bill that regulates what Physical Therapists can do under PT licenses and how PTs are allowed to treat patients.
