Clinical Practice Guidelines: Examination and Intervention for Rehabilitation
Carol Schunk, Kelly Reed
Aspen Publishers, 2000 - Medical - 493 pages
Evaluation and treatment guidelines are parameters for clinical practice. Therapists use guidelines to provide interventions that optimize patient outcomes. Developed by therapists at Therapeutic Associates, Inc. with clinical experience and an understanding of today's health care environment, this user-friendly manual provides a reference to all aspects of patient care, including initial evaluation, goal development, treatment, and discharge planning. Function and patient responsibility are emphasized. The guidelines are organized by orthopaedic and neurological diagnoses commonly encountered in rehabilitation practice. They can be used as a resource in the clinic or to validate treatment to a referral source or third-party payer. Each guideline concludes with an extensive, up-to-date bibliography, and each guideline is paired with a one-page quick reference tool that summarizes the guideline. The terminology in the guidelines is designed to coincide with APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.
