Description : 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.

Description : Geriatric Rehabilitation addresses the fact that this is an age in which individuals have increasing longevity, better health care, education and expectations of health care which present new, increasing and even radical challenges to health care providers. The care of our older patients in rehabilitation settings demands the broad understanding of the key differences in strategies to care for older adults. The combined skills embraced in rehabilitation and geriatrics are presenting unprecedented opportunities for both fields to make substantive and even ground-breaking improvements in the lives of millions of older adults who entrust their lives to us. Rarely in one’s medical career are such opportunities so evident and achievable. Geriatric Rehabilitation edited by Dr. K. Rao Poduri, MD. FAAPMR draws on a distinguished group of authors who are the front-line providers of care to the older adults. This book presents the full spectrum of the unique care needs of older patients who need the combined skills of physical medicine and geriatrics. It provides an easily accessible means of acquiring and improving these new skills for all those involved in geriatric care.

Description : This project focuses on physical therapists in their role as adult educators and advocates for their geriatric patients. As such, the purpose of this mixed methods study was two-fold: a) to investigate physical therapy professionals' understanding/perspectives of patient advocacy for geriatric patients in healthcare settings; and b) to explore physical therapists' experiences of geriatric patient advocacy including advocacy actions, the context of advocacy efforts, and the perceptions of meaning these efforts have for practitioners, patients and patients' families. The theoretical framework of the study was grounded in critical perspectives of adult education and critical gerontology. An Attitude toward Patient Advocacy Scale was modified to assess physical therapists' attitudes, beliefs and practices of geriatric patient advocacy. One hundred thirty eight licensed physical therapists completed the survey and indicated overall favorable attitudes, beliefs and practices of physical therapists who work with geriatric patients. The quantitative data also revealed significant differences in scores of physical therapists who have board certification in geriatric physical therapy. Ten qualitative in-depth interviews were conducted from among those respondents whose scores were in the top 15th percentile. The qualitative findings on the shaping of their attitudes show that participants: became passionate about geriatrics through happenstance; perceive older adults as marginalized; embrace the professional challenges that help shape attitudes and beliefs of working with older adults. The findings on advocacy reveal how they: traverse the bureaucracy of health care; empower and protect geriatric individuals; and champion community and political responsibility. Lastly, the current findings describe the defining actions and experiences of advocacy efforts including themes of challenging limits, seizing opportunities and preparing/protecting the future. As a result of the research, the critical perspectives of adult education and the framework of critical gerontology are merged to foster geriatric patient advocacy in all physical therapists.
