Physical therapist as work injury prevention and management specialist

from Physical Therapy Products

In many physical therapy practice settings, discharge planning occurs as the initial evaluation is being done. With inpatients recovering from surgery or illness, focus is given to planning for equipment and support that will be needed. Additionally, discharge destination needs to determine whether the home is an appropriate destination or if short-term rehab may be required. In the outpatient setting, discharge goals include return to full play for an athlete, resuming functional activities, and returning to work. If we broaden the reach of the physical therapist, how can we help employers utilize this planning process to improve their return-to-work process, reduce lost time, decrease employee frustration, and cut costs? more
