In the second edition of this reference, students will learn the critical skill of clinical decision-making by reading about real-life case scenarios along with a description of the course of action to follow and direct insight into the process. With brand new cases covering both typical and rare issues, readers can learn from the successes and mistakes of their colleagues. The content is presented in a format following the elements of patient/client management from Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, 2nd Edition, the standard for physical therapy practice. Each example includes learning objectives, guiding questions, discussion, and references and corresponds to one or more of the four preferred practice patterns (Musculoskeletal, Neuromuscular, Cardiovascular/Pulmonary, and Integumentary) as outlined by the Guide. The variety in type of cases offered makes this resource appropriate for use with students over the span of a course as well as for clinicians wishing to work through more challenging patient scenarios.
