Students will have the opportunity to apply clinical decision-making skills to the dynamic interaction of multiple system variables (physiological, biomechanical, psychological, social, cultural and environmental) and their impact on the disease and recovery process. Tests, measures and interventions will be discussed related to the diagnostic categories described in the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. The format of this course will include a variety of learning experiences including presentations by expert clinicians, small group discussions, patient based experiences, video demonstrations and written assignments. PRE-REQUISITE(S): Successful completion of all previous coursework.
