    Documentation for Physical Therapist Practice: A Clinical Decision Making Approach provides the framework for successful documentation. It is synchronous with Medicare standards as well as the American Physical Therapy Association’s recommendations for defensible documentation. This key resource utilizes a practical clinical decision-making approach and applies this framework to all aspects of documentation. This text emphasizes how the common and standard language of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model can be integrated with a physical therapist’s clinical reasoning process and a physical therapist assistant’s skill set to produce successful documentation.
