American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has cancelled its APTA Next Annual Conference in Phoenix due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it announces Virtual NEXT as a way to offer the continuing education content that would have been provided at the conference online.

Available for purchase in the APTA Learning Center beginning June 3, 2020 – the date the in-person conference would have begun had it taken place – the Virtual NEXT continuing education course bundle includes more than 20 courses with related CEUs, as well as several special sessions. CEUs are assigned individually to each course and are provided upon successful completion of a post-test assignment. Restrictions apply in some states.

Course topics include pain management, telehealth, disaster management, diversity education, and leadership. Other live events will be announced, according to APTA. Price is $20 for APTA members and $40 for non-members.

All Virtual NEXT CEU sessions are available for purchase through July 31, 2020, with access to the content available until December 31, 2020. Once starting each individual course, purchasers have 90 days to complete it.
