dc.description.abstract"Procedures and patient care will be one of the first courses a physical therapist assistant (PTA) student will encounter as they begin their educational career. The foundational material covered in Procedures and Patient Care for the Physical Therapist Assistant includes information about transfers, positioning, vital sign measurement, wheelchair fit and management, assistive devices, and gait. These skills are vital to know as a PTA, regardless of specialization or location of employment. Inside Procedures and Patient Care for the Physical Therapist Assistant, Jennifer Memolo includes objectives, key terms, common abbreviations, and review questions. Also, in each chapter is information adhering to the current best practice and an understanding of red flags a PTA should know and report to supervising physical therapists or other health care providers"--Provided by publisher.en_US
