Congratulations to our Faculty Fellow – Adam Goode!

We would like to congratulate Adam Goode, DPT, PhD, Janet Bettger, ScD, Lynn Bowlby, MD, BSPT, Erik Carvalho, PT, DPT, Marissa Carvalho, DPT and Daniel Dore, PT, DPT, MHA whose proposal entitled, “Integration of Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy Care in the Patient Centered Medical Home” has been selected for $134,000 of federal funding from the Duke Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) which is the academic home of the National Institutes of Health’s Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) funding program. The project will be a randomized clinical trial integrating a physical therapist into primary care for the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal complaints. The project has two aims: To 1) determine the effectiveness of a physical therapist as an entry level provider compared with a primary care provider for musculoskeletal complaints in the primary care setting on the outcomes of total musculoskeletal charges and costs, opioid prescriptions, emergency department visits, imaging use and patient satisfaction with care; and, 2) examine at the patient, provider, system and policy level barriers and facilitators to implementing new physical therapist-led care models. The Duke CTSI Translational Acceleration Research Funding attracts very high-quality applications, and the reviewers felt that their proposal was a novel clinical and translational research proposal that has high potential for future funding and could have tremendous impact on healthcare delivery and management.
