A practical guide to developing the clinical judgment essential to effective patient care
Co-authored by two prominent physical therapy educators, this informative reference addresses a skill that is crucial to the success of Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs).
Designed to integrate decision making into PTA education, it covers the types of decisions that must be made in physical therapy treatment and offers sound guidance on how to make them. Critical thinking questions and treatment activities are included with each chapter to enable students to apply what they’ve learned to real-life situations. This text is a valuable resource for intermediate and post intermediate physical therapist assistant courses.
