Ongoing process
Initial appointment is often called "the assessment"

We continually assess with each appointment and within appointments
What is an Assessment?
It is the tool that we use to evaluate a patient and their condition in order
to establish a physical therapy
diagnosis and develop a treatment plan
Clarify patient's (pt) functional concerns
Chief complaint (CC)
Establish pt's present level of function
What are they having difficulty with
What could they do prior to this injury/condition
Assess the pt's physical function
What can they actually do
Establish a cause/profile of the problem
not simply the diagnoses, but also the things that contribute to the condition
Establish or confirm a PT diagnosis
this is where you are trying to describe the condition specifically
ie. patellofemoral pain syndrome
hemiplegia due to stroke
Identify PT role in care
just because we are the professional that they patient has come to see we may not be the most appropriate person to treat them
know your boundaries and refer on if need be
okay to not know....
Establish a PT treatment plan to meet the patients goals

assessment include?
