Complete and accurate documentation is one of the most essential skills for a physical therapist to develop and use effectively. Necessary for both new and experienced practitioners, the new and updatedSecond EditionofPhysical Therapy Documentation: From Examination to Outcome will teach and explain physical therapy documentation from A to Z.

Physical Therapy Documentation, Second Editionprovides individuals with the knowledge and skills for documenting physical therapy services. The text begins with several chapters of background information that give the rationale for quality documentation. Physical Therapy Documentation, Second Edition provides the physical therapist's ethical responsibility for quality record keeping. The mechanics of note writing are delivered in a manner friendly to those who are learning the basic elements of documentation.
Mia Erickson, Ralph Utzman, and Rebecca McKnight also include chapters on professional responsibilities and reimbursement issues commonly associated with documentation that are important to physical therapists. Each chapter includes examples and opportunities for practice covering a variety of physical therapy patients and settings.

Features in the Second Edition:
• Multiple sections covering electronic documentation, including the positive and negative aspects and common pitfalls.
• Use of research evidence on integrating and documenting tests and measures is provided in the mechanics of note writing.
• Multiple templates for documenting initial notes, interim notes, and discharge summaries are given but deviation from these templates, such as during use of the electronic record, are also discussed.
• Ethical and regulatory issues related to documentation of physical therapy care.
• Increased emphasis on documenting contemporary concepts such as skilled services and medical necessity.
