FSBPT's areas of focus guide us in the planning and budgeting process by keeping us focused on what is essential to forwarding the mission of the Federation.
They were developed over time through our membership surveys, two FSBPT summits, strategic planning sessions of the board of directors and additional feedback from committees and staff.
The areas of focus are reviewed and approved at each meeting of the FSBPT delegate assembly. They are guided by the vision of the Federation approved by the 2003 Delegate Assembly:
“State licensing boards and their Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy will achieve a high level of public protection through a strong foundation of laws and regulatory standards in physical therapy, effective tools and systems to assess entry-level and continuing competence, and public and professional awareness of resources for public protection.”
To ensure the ongoing excellence, reliability, defensibility, security and validity of the NPTE® and related examinations.
To enhance the Federation's value to its membership by developing and maintaining programs and services responsive to membership needs.
To identify and promote effective regulation in physical therapy that ensures the delivery of safe and competent physical therapy care, while respecting states’ rights and responsibilities.
To provide and promote educational programs and products for board members, administrators, the public and other stakeholders.
To broaden the Federation's leadership role and recognition within the regulatory, professional and related communities.
To ensure the long-term organizational and financial stability and viability of the Federation.
