PHYSICAL THERAPIST LEADERS PROVIDE ANALYSIS OF PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES' HEALTH CARE PROPOSALS

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As Americans head to the polls to cast their votes in the Presidential election, health care is a top priority; approximately one in three Americans report having trouble paying their medical bills thanks to the economic crisis and a shortage of adequate, affordable health insurance (1). Physical Therapy (PTJ), the scientific journal of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), offers a two-part podcast summary and analysis of the health care proposals of presidential candidates Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain by physical therapist researchers Anthony Delitto, PT, PhD, FAPTA and Alan Jette, PT, PhD, FAPTA and physical therapist Justin Moore, PT, DPT, APTA Director of Federal Government Affairs. The podcast also features a discussion on disability research needs in the United States. Each of the two-part podcasts is 20 minutes in duration and is available on the PTJ web site (http://www.ptjournal.org/cgi/content/full/88/10/DC2).

In part 1, the experts discuss how the health care plans of each candidate address access, quality of care, and cost, including the ways in which both candidates plan to shift away from the current procedure-based model to one that emphasizes cost-containment and rewards quality and efficiency. The podcast also provides discussion on how the plans will address people with pre-existing conditions, such as the chronically ill and those with disabilities.

The second podcast focuses in part on the dramatic underfunding of disability research. NIH, for example, currently receives $300 million, a relatively small slice of a $29 billion budget. According to the experts, "this is significantly out of synch with the needs of society."
