Neurologic Practice Essentials Toolkit

This toolkit gives you an overview of key issues that a physical therapist must consider in choosing standardized outcome measures for use in a neurologic clinical practice environment. Emphasis is on considerations of measure choice for an individual patient. Using published works from JNPT and PTJ, including articles that were developed from the Neurology Section course “Neurologic Practice Essential: A Measurement Toolbox,” this course includes (1) a reflection of current practice and barriers to outcome measure use; (2) strategies for incorporating outcome measures in clinical settings; and (3) a decision-making process for choosing appropriate measures for an individual patient with stroke.

NOTE: Read the completion instructions fully as there are special requirements for completing the entire toolkit.
