A variety of diagnoses will be presented and specific key areas are addressed in the management and progression of each patient. Red flags and tips on how to appropriately monitor and interpret the patients key vital signs when initiating and progressing a patient’s functional movement are thoroughly addressed, as this is essential,beyond basics knowledge, for all acute care therapists.
