Rehabilitation Reference Center - Browsing Practice Resources

The Practice Resources tab in Rehabilitation Reference Center (RRC) allows you to browse for information by the specific resource or guideline you require:

  • Clinical Reviews - Clinical Reviews are clinically-oriented reviews on rehabilitation topics incorporating the best available evidence through rigorous systematic surveillance.

  • Research Instruments – The Research Instruments section allows you to browse for documents that contain data regarding individual research instruments. A research instrument is the form in which a group gathers and records information. This might include various types of questionnaires or other tests. Clicking a research instrument type displays a result list of multiple items.

  • Exercise Images – The Exercise Images section allows you to browse for exercise images which demonstrate and explain each exercise. Exercise images are excellent for assisting patients with home exercise routines and as follow-through from their visit. Custom printing allows users to add personalized care notes as well as order and sort exercises based on treatment plan.

  • Practice Guidelines – The Practice Guidelines section allows you to browse for National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC) documents. These documents provide objective evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and information about their development.

  • Featured Books – The Featured Books section allows you to browse through a list of monographs and drug entries in HTML versions of the following medical books:

    • Therapeutic Exercise: Foundations & Techniques, 5th edition – A text of guidelines for therapists to use to provide customized exercise instruction for patients with movement disorders. It contains clinical examples, case studies, illustrations, and management guidelines to assist the therapist in developing the best therapeutic exercise plan.

    • Modalities for Therapeutic Intervention, 4th Edition – A practical text for physical therapy students and practitioners alike, which focuses on evidence-based practice with terminology indicative of APTA's Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. It contains case studies, specific chapters on technical aspects of the modalities, modality illustrations, and discussion of safety procedures, equipment maintenance, and current research for each agent.

    • Developing Cultural Competence in Physical Therapy Practice – A complete guide that addresses cultural considerations specifically relevant to physical therapy.
