Complete and accurate documentation is one of the most essential skills for a physical therapist to develop and use effectively. Necessary for both new and experienced practitioners, Physical Therapy Documentation: From Examination to Outcome will teach and explain physical therapy documentation from A to Z. Physical Therapy Documentationcovers all of the fundamentals for prospective physical therapists preparing to work in the clinic or clinicians looking to refine and update their skills. Dr. Mia Erickson along with Rebecca McKnight and Dr. Ralph Utzman discuss documentation issues while providing a framework for the actual documentation format. In addition,Physical Therapy Documentationdraws comparisons between the familiar, traditional documentation formats and contemporary models to provide a foundation for clinicians and students to use when documenting in any practice setting. Practice exercises and case studies are provided throughout the text demonstrating note-writing across the continuum of care. This text will allow the student or clinician to produce quality documentation consistent with current standards of practice. The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice is referenced throughout the text as the model for patient/client management.
