The official journal of the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy of the American Physical Therapy Association is the only peer-reviewed journal dedicated specifically to acute care physical therapy.

The journal is an indexed resource for the dissemination of researchbased evidence and clinical practice information related to physical therapy practice for patients with acute care needs. It maintains high quality through double-blinded review, and a distinguished editorial board and pool of peer reviewers. The journal publishes original research regarding evaluation and intervention for this critical patient population, including clinical trials, systematic reviews, case reports, and clinical perspectives.

JACPT was developed to enhance the prominence of physical therapy in the acute care portion of the health care arena and to demonstrate the scientific basis of our area of practice. Although hospital-based practice and intensive care, in particular, represent the major focus of JACPT, additional care settings including emergency departments, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, and others are also covered in the journal.
