Authors Terry Des Jardins and George G. Burton describe how to systematically gather clinical data, formulate an assessment, make an objective evaluation, identify the desired outcome, and design a safe and effective treatment plan, while documenting each step along the way. Unique coverage of Therapist-Driven Protocols (TDPs) prepares you to implement industry-approved standards of care. Unique! Clinical scenarios connect to specific diseases so you can better understand the disease and the treatment modalities used. Unique! A focus on assessment and Therapist-Driven Protocols (TDPs) emphasizes industry-approved standards of care, providing you with the knowledge and skills to implement these protocols into patient care. Case studies help in applying information to assessment and treatment. Overview boxes summarize the clinical manifestations caused by the pathophysiologic mechanisms of each disorder.
