  10. 10.  In an effort to provide effective and efficient care to patients with chronic health conditions, the U.S. healthcare system has done much to redesign its delivery system. Developing an approach to meet the high demands of patients and to best utilize resources became necessary. The result is the common use now of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach  Multidisciplinary teams, as the name implies, are teams of people from different disciplines that come together for a common purpose. The MDT approach is used in a variety of different setting including healthcare, education, and mental health. 10
  11. 11.  In the state of SD a PTA must graduate from an accredited physical therapist assistant education program as determined by the board, and has passed a certification examination approved by the board.  Specialist Certification  PTA Recognition of Advanced Proficiency 11
