PT 206 PTA Clinical Practicum I

This Level I clinical experience provides supervised, planned learning opportunities for students to apply basic physical therapy principles and techniques under the direction of a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant in the setting of an acute hospital, inpatient rehabilitation, or skilled nursing facility. Basic techniques include, but are not limited to patient safety, patient set-up, transfer training, gait training, measuring vital signs, administration of modalities, assessing range of motion and muscle strength, instruction on therapeutic exercise, and proper documentation in the medical charts. Through reflective journaling, the student will be challenged to identify how his/her personal value system/worldview facilitates conduct that reflects practice standards that are legal, ethical and safe and delivery of care in a compassionate and altruistic manner in the clinical environment. 2 hrs
