Clinical Education in Physical TherapyAuthors: Debra F Stern, Rebecca Rosenthal
Written in adherence with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education’s (CAPTE) standards, Clinical Education in Physical Therapy explores the evolution from student to Clinical Instructor (CI) while serving as an essential educational resource for Physical Therapy students. This exciting new text presents the rewards and challenges of becoming a CI, the legal issues involved for the academic institution and the clinical sites, interprofessional education, clinical education models, establishing a clinical education program, and much more! Trends in the current healthcare marketplace are also highlighted, addressing changes in employment and staffing arrangements that directly impact practice and clinical education.
Clinical Education in Physical Therapy takes the reader from the responsibilities of a student learner through the completion of clinical education, guiding the student through entering the world as a practitioner, and ultimately facilitating the decision-making process of transitioning to a CI and potentially a Site Coordinator of Clinical Education (SCCE). The text includes a dedicated chapter on leadership and professionalism, both of which have been stressed in recent years by both the APTA and CAPTE.
Clinical Education in Physical Therapy incorporates a robust pedagogy with a consistent format. Key Points and Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter establish primary take-aways for readers, while case studies in select chapters reinforce practical application of the material. Chapters end with thought provoking Discussion Questions designed to strengthen the readers mastery of key topics and inspire analysis. Slides in PowerPoint format are also available to aid instructors in teaching their courses.
