Physical therapy aides who are trained with this comprehensive professional resource have a high degree of carryover and competence in treating patients. Author Catherine Thut, M.B.A., PT, developed the material in this 160-page manual at the Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation. Providing quality service and care to the patient is a professional responsibility in the health-care industry. Yet, in times of staff shortages, providing this level of care is a challenge. For this reason, physical therapists turn to aides for assistance. Unfortunately, aides are not always equipped with appropriate or adequate information, and the result is inconsistency in quality of care. This text was developed to afford consistent and adequate information for aides in an adult neurological rehabilitation setting. However, the contents can be used in a variety of clinical settings. The reproducible outlines and illustrations in this book provide comprehensive and consistent training for physical therapy aides. The easy-to-use materials provide a basic science background and psychomotor information. The instructional material is divided into three sections:

*

General Orientation

*

Basic Principles

*

Diagnostic-Specific Training Each training module includes estimated time frames for completion and specific objectives. Also included is an entire module on aide management. An extensive glossary and 12 follow-up tests give the therapist in charge all the information he or she needs to set up an effective training program. Also included, in the back of the book, are answers for the tests.
