the following information: pathology (including
significant contributing factors), PT evaluation,
PT problem list, PT goals, PT assessment and
treatment, both PT and any appropriate medically
based interventions. Topics such as pharmacology,
imaging, differential diagnosis and delegation of
treatment are integrated into case discussion.
