Pediatric Therapy

 Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Therapy
Mar 202018

Research has become increasingly clear regarding the benefits of interprofessional collaborations in health care. Pediatric therapists have long recognized that coordinated care and advocacy for children and their families promote healthy growth, development, and participation in a wide range of environments. To this end, Pediatric Therapy: An Interprofessional Framework for Practice has been designed to engage students and clinicians in interprofessional learning experiences that cultivate collaborative practice and optimize the outcomes of those served.

Dr. Catherine Rush Thompson and her team of contributors represent years of experience across the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Rather than discussing each of these fields in isolation, however, the text explores professional roles and responsibilities, emphasizing essential skills needed for collaboration in a range of pediatric settings.

Key Interprofessional Concepts Covered:
Foundations and philosophies that serve as a basis for pediatric care
Assessing infants, children, youth, and adolescents in various situations
Legal and ethical considerations impacting pediatric care
Unique issues encountered in settings where pediatric therapies are offered
Using current evidence and the clinical reasoning process for designing and modifying interventions

Each section of Pediatric Therapy offers case-based learning activities requiring interprofessional collaboration for clinical reasoning to optimize care. This approach encourages an appreciation of the importance of holistic care, as well as an understanding of the roles, frames of reference, and approaches favored by each discipline.

Pediatric therapists and others who work in healthcare and educational settings will appreciate Pediatric Therapy: An Interprofessional Framework for Practice as a guide for developing the interprofessional competencies needed to achieve desired outcomes for children and their families

With research and teaching experience in health promotion, pediatrics, motor imagery, neurorehabilitation, professional development, and clinical decision making, as well as interprofessional service in Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, and Kyrgyzstan, she brings a deep appreciation of interpro­fessional collaboration and cultural competency for providing high-quality care to all communities. Her most recent publi­cation, Prevention Practice and Health Promotion: A Health Care Professional’s Guide to Health, Fitness, and Wellness, Second Edition, addresses health care issues across the lifespan and emphasizes holistic care. She hopes that Pediatric Therapy: An Interprofessional Framework for Practice will provide a foundation for engaging students and clinicians in interprofessional discussions and activities that will enhance the quality of care in pediatrics.
