Every year, the California Physical Therapy Association would lobby against this bill, as portrayed in their official twitter account. Their main arguments presented in the tweets recently are that "it create a scope of practice that is too broad for ATs" and that "it would allow ATs to practice beyond their education and training. Not safe for consumers."
Whether you are parents, administrators, coaches, athletic trainers, athletic training students, other healthcare providers, or everyday healthcare consumer, I ask for a favor... Please write a letter to your state official to support this AB 1890. The letter is pre-written and would take you 5 minutes or less of your time. http://cqrcengage.com/cata/home . So let us show our support to our brothers and sisters in California. The success of this AB1890 passing through would bring about not only victory to athletic trainers, but also coaches, parents and most importantly, the health and safety of our athletes and kids.
