Rely on this state-of-the-art, multimedia resource to help you meet the expectations for today and tomorrow’s health care providers. Review essential patient care skills—from positioning and vital signs to transfers and ambulation with assistive devices. Then learn how to transition to the “out-of-the-box” thinking you need to quickly and effectively respond to the myriad of unusual and unplanned circumstances encountered daily among patients.
Step-by-step guidance walks you through biomechanical and neurological principles, collaborative patient/client goals and therapeutic alliance, overall rehabilitation efforts, and the changing reality of health care that demands higher levels of critical thinking and problem solving in a wider variety of situations.
A wealth of full-color illustrations, icons, and tips break down complex topics into “bite-sized,” more manageable pieces.
Turn to the COMPANION DVD for extra practice—44 video clips feature clinicians performing the techniques described in the text.
This was required for one of my Physical Therapy courses. It is very readable and provides very good explainations, examples and images. I would recommend it to anyone studying PT or any other discipline requiring patient care.
The book was in great condition and it arrived on time. I chose this rating because it met my needs and there was nothing wrong with. Great Service!!
Decent book but it is not very well outlined or indexed which makes the book difficult to navigate when searching for answers to questions.
I needed this book for PT School and Amazon provides brand new copies with all disks and/or access codes that you can get if you buy the book at your bookstore. Very pleased with Amazon and I will be sure to look at Amazon for my future textbook needs.
