Whether you are practicing in an in-patient or an out-patient facility, academic institution, or clinical residency program, this well-respected handbook gives you the background and guidance you need to effectively educate individuals across the continuum of physical therapy practice. Practical, real-life examples show you how to: incorporate health literacy and needs of the learner; assess and adapt to the various learning styles of patients; use simulations in education; facilitate the development of clinical reasoning skills; and assess learning outcomes and the effectiveness of your teaching. Plus, four all-new chapters and major revisions of all content throughout the book keep you on top of the latest research and best practices.

  • Variety of teaching and teaching assessment methods expands your teaching, learning, and assessment repertoires.
  • Case stories at the beginning of each chapter allow you to see the relevance of the information in the chapter.
  • Threshold concepts highlight key ideas that are important to know.
