The Clinician Task Force (CTF) provides the voice of the clinical community in order to make a positive difference in ensuring appropriate access to assistive technology. There is clearly a need for experienced clinicians in the field of wheeled mobility and seating to share their knowledge and experience regarding Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT) and the CTF is that forum.
Complex Rehab Technology- Essential for health. Essential for life.
The CTF has been requested to assist with education and training of HHS Staff, CMS, CMS contractors, and legislators about the differentiation between DME and CRT. We have led efforts to propose substantive recommendations with supportive evidence for proposed policy changes.
I am also very proud of the work our dedicated group has done to effect change within APTA and AOTA to define CRT and CRT clinical practice and advocacy in organizational policy and priorities at the highest level.
It has been a privilege to lead this group of passionate dedicated clinicians. I have great confidence in the CTF Executive Leadership Team and look forward to participating in continued efforts to realize CRT legislation and policy improvements to enable CRT access for people with complex mobility impairments.
