Expertise in Physical Therapy Practice
Provides the first in-depth understanding of expert physical therapy practice in print. Through their research, Jensen, Gwyer, Hack, and Shepard have compiled the first comprehensive description of expert clinical practice in physical therapy. How do the experts work and learn? How do they reason and make clinical decisions? How do they evaluate and treat their patients and interact with colleagues? How do they handle their mistakes? By taking an in-depth look at the principles and beliefs that guide the work of expert physical therapists, you will learn the answers to these questions.
Through case studies depicting expert physical therapy practice in four clinical areas-geriatrics, neurology, pediatrics, and orthopedics-discover the attitudes, thinking processes, types of knowledge and hands-on skills that need to be acquired to develop clinical expertise.
