Summary

Rehabilitation therapy education in Kentucky and articulation within the fields of physical therapy and occupational therapy are examined, based on the Kentucky Allied Health Project (KAHP). The KAHP's model system of allied health education promotes articulation in learning, planning, and resource utilization, and seeks to meet the needs of patients and students and to reduce the rising cost of health care. Phases of the KAHP include planning, developing and comparing curricula, reviewing articulation, initiating transfer agreements, developing a statewide articulation system, and project evaluation. For both physical therapy and occupational therapy, information is presented on: the history of the profession, types of educational programs, regulatory practices in the profession, and accreditation of the programs. Issues in articulation include identifying and establishing increased career mobility options for physical therapist and occupational therapist assistants. Activities of the Rehabilitation Therapy Discipline Advisory Group (DAG) of the KAHP include helping to reduce the extended time required for a physical therapist assistant to matriculate through the University of Kentucky (UK) program; and arranging for direct credit transfer from Jefferson Community College to the University of Louisville (UL) and UK programs. Additional DAG recommendations and the use of the Program Evaluation and Review Technique are addressed. (SW)
