About this item

As the aging population continues to increase, so does the need for a text specific to the specialized care of the elderly patient as it applies to the physical therapist assistant student, faculty, and clinician.

Geriatric Rehabilitation: A Textbook for the Physical Therapist Assistant, recognizes the growing role of the PTA in a variety of heath care settings from acute to home to long-term care settings, to name a few.

Inside Geriatric Rehabilitation, Dr. Jennifer Bottomley, along with her contributors, focuses on the clinically relevant assessment, treatment, and management of the geriatric population. Pathological manifestations commonly seen in the elderly patient are addressed from a systems perspective, as well as a focus on what is seen clinically and how it affects function.

Each pathological area covered includes:

* Screening, assessment, and evaluation

* Treatment prescription

* Goal setting

* Modification of treatment

* Anticipated outcomes

* Psychosocial, pharmacological,

and nutritional elements

The organization and presentation of the practical, hands-on components of interventions, assessments, and decision-making skills make this a go-to text for the PTA to administer comprehensive geriatric care at each point along the continuum of care.

Some of the features inside include:

* Emphasis on treatment interventions-techniques, tips, and options

* Focus on how assessment tools and treatments are applied and modified to benefit the geriatric population, and what the expected outcomes are

* Clear and outlined chapter objectives

* User-friendly summary tables in the nutritional and pharmacology chapters

* Pearls that highlight important chapter information

* Appendices and study aids

Geriatric Rehabilitation: A Textbook for the Physical Therapist Assistant answers the call for a text that focuses on the management of geriatric patients across the spectrum of care for the PTA, from students to those practicing in geriatric populations.
