Dozens of realistic cases help students make transition from classroom to clinic
The Physical Therapy Case Files series gives students realistic cases designed to help them make the transition from classroom to clinical work and is an outstanding review for the specialty topics included on the American Physical Therapy Association certification exams (NPTE). This evidence-based series can stand alone or is the perfect complement to textbooks for enhanced learning in the context of real patients. Each case includes clinical tips, evidence-based practice recommendations, analysis, and review questions. These cases teach students how to think through evaluation, assessment, and treatment planning.
