Illustrated, user-friendly design helps you think more critically as a therapist and strengthen the concepts that are critical to your success. Content focuses on functional outcomes and the importance of documentation. Case studies and checklists for application procedures foster decision-making skills. Patient scenarios outline utilization of modality, and include documentation, safety features, information about the patient that would alter treatment, what should be done after the modality, and where the modality fits into the treatment plan. Up-to-date information covers patient education strategies, study charts for patients to complete, home care considerations, and suggested study ideas for groups or individuals. Terminology reflects the APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.
