This interactive course will describe a pragmatic approach to the medical screening process designed for safe and efficient patient management, and which can be implemented immediately by physical therapists.
Through the use of pertinent patient case examples, emphasis is placed on describing patient history and physical examination findings that may prompt the physical therapist to hypothesize about the existence of medical conditions presenting as musculoskeletal conditions and facilitate appropriate medical evaluation and management strategies. An emphasis of this course will be on clinical decision-making principles in an outpatient, direct access physical therapy setting. However, the principles presented are applicable to any clinical setting.

My favorite part of this course was the interaction with examples of direct clinical care with classmates. It was extremely helpful, and it gave nice examples of how things look in real time, and how we could best rule things out.
I liked the intake form project the most. I feel medical screening is very important for improving patient care and for the profession and this was an excellent project for the class.
