This project will investigate the validity of the Physical Therapy Spanish Proficiency Measure (PT-SPM). The researchers developed this measure to assess a physical therapist student’s readiness to safely and effectively communicate in Spanish with limited English proficient Spanish-speaking patients (without the use of an interpreter). Additionally, the PT-SPM has potential use as a curricular assessment tool for physical therapist educational programs that include Spanish in their curriculum.
