PHTH 434- GERIATRIC PHYSICAL THERAPY PRACTICE (2Cr.:0Lec,6Cln,0Tut):
Throughout various clinical settings, including Faculty’s Out Patient Clinic and different training sites, students are expected to implement strategies that have been learned and demonstrated in simulated situations in the classroom that are related to a variety of clients. Under direct supervision of the clinical instructor, students apply the knowledge which they have gained throughout the Geriatric Physical Therapy course to the screening, examining, evaluating, and planning of appropriate interventions as well as to the documenting of care. Students are also expected to participate in management activities and the delivery of service. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based practice.
