An understanding of the interaction between psychiatric comorbidities and medical diagnoses enables the acute care physical therapist to be more effective and productive during treatment. During this course, we will explore this interaction as well as communication techniques and PT’s unique role with this population. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
