“This book is a great reference for specific patient care considerations, written by a PTA for PTAs. It is well organized and presents concepts with practical examples and scenarios. The topics are covered in detail with plenty of easy-to-read bullet-point boxes and charts. The attention to patient safety and promotion of the PT/PTA team is prominent throughout. This book is a blend of adequately referenced best practices and anecdotal experiences, which is valuable to students as a base knowledge reference.”
-Jason R. Oliver, PTA, Doody’s Book Review Services
