It is the position of the WPTA that course material is directed toward an audience of physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and PT/PTA students. Participants may only use the course material if it falls within their scope of practice. In addition, elements of courses used for patient/client management may only be defined as physical therapy when performed by or under the supervision of a physical therapist in accordance with American Physical Therapy Association policies, positions and standards. The opinions expressed by the speakers do not necessarily represent the opinions of WPTA. WPTA does not guarantee the accuracy of the advice given by any speaker, and members of the audience must make their own determination whether to rely on such advice.

The 2017 Fall Conference will be held at the Madison Marriott West in Middleton.
