Recognizing those who achieve exceptional rehabilitation results through the use of advanced water therapy.
Who doesn’t love a truly inspiring story? It is our human nature to be drawn to stories of individuals overcoming the odds, breaking through barriers and truly redefining what is possible. We have all been impacted, in one way or another, after hearing these remarkable stories. Behind these truly amazing rehabilitation stories are the clinicians and medical staff who also sacrificed to ensure these individuals would reach their goals.
The 2015 Healthcare Excellence in Aquatics Award will recognize clinicians who, despite all odds, garnered superior rehabilitation results through innovative and sometimes unconventional methods. Eligible pioneers rely on aquatics as a medium to help achieve exceptional results.
In order to participate, your clinical case study must be about a patient who utilized aquatic therapy for a portion of their rehab in the 2013 or 2014 calendar years. If you are selected as a nominee, you or a member of your staff must be present at the APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting in Indianapolis, IN in February 2015 when the winner is announced.
