In the 115th Congress, ASHT played a key role in repealing the Therapy Cap, beat back harmful policy proposals on orthotics and prosthetics and helped shape legislation to stem the opioid crisis. In this webinar, we will look back at the important advocacy work done on behalf of the profession and look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead in 2019. On the heels of the recent elections, we will also discuss the implications of the mid-term results on the Congressional agenda and how that intersects with the hand therapy specialty.
- Demonstrate the intersection of advocacy, policy and practice
- Analyze political environment for agenda setting purposes
- Identify strategies for influencing Congress and federal agencies
