    Not being person oriented so, WHO created ICF.
  15. ICF stands for?
    International classification of Function, disability and health
  16. ICF model components

  17. Disability definition
    Inability to perform or participate in activities related to one's self, home or work that is perceived to be normal.
  18. Prevention
    Reduction in the chance for disability
  19. 3 types of prevention
    • Primary - help prevent disease
    • Secondary - early diagnosis and reduction of severity
    • Tertiary - Use of rehab to reduce the degree or limit progression of existing disability
  20. Risk Factors
    • Characteristics that predispose a person to the process of disablement
    • They exist prior to the onset
  21. Clinical Decision Making
    Reasoning or critical thinking that involves making judgemtns and determination in patient care
  22. Evidence based practice
    Conscientous, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making a decision about the care of an individual patient
  23. Process of evidence based practice
    • Identify patient problem and convert to specific question
    • Search literature and collect clinically relevant data
    • Analyze the evidence
    • Integrate
    • Incorporate
    • Assess the outcome
  24. Steps of PAtient management model
    • Examination
    • Evaluation
    • Diagnosis
    • prognosis of POC
  25. PTA Intervention
    • A purposeful interaction that directly relates to a patient's care and can include:
    • coordination, communication & documentation
    • procedural intervention
    • patient related instruction
  26. Functional outcomes must be:
    • Meaningful
    • Practical
    • Sustainable
  27. Discharge occurs when...
    Anticipated goals and expected outcomes have been attained
  28. Discontinuation occurs when ...
    ending service prior to meeting expected goals and outcomes

    Basic technique used for examination of movement and for initiating movement into a purposeful therapeutic intervention
  33. Types of ROM
    • AROM
    • AAROM

  34. Indications for PROM
    • Patient has acute, inflamed tissue
    • Patient is unable to or not supposed to move segment
  35. Goals of PROM
    • Maintain joint and connective tissue mobility
    • Prevent contractures
    • Maintain mechanical elasticity of muscle
    • Assist circulation and vascular dynamics
    • Enhance synovial movement
    • Decrease or inhibit pain

    • Pumps blood
    • Help maintain the patient’s awareness of movement
  36. Indications for AROM
    • When a patient is able to actively contract the muscles
    • When a patient has weak muscles
    • For aerobic conditioning
    • To mobilize a segment above or below an immobilized region
  37. Precautions and contraindication to ROM exercises
    • Should not be done if movement will hinder healing
    • Should not be done if it is going to kill patient
