PTR 712 - Psychosocial Considerations in PT Practice

This course is designed to develop the physical therapist’s understanding of psychosocial considerations and cultural competence in health care. It entails the use of a systems perspective that values differences and is responsive to diversity at all levels of an organization, i.e. policy, governance, administrative, workforce, provider, and consumer/client. Physical therapy students will be prepared to promote and support the attitudes, behaviors, knowledge, and skills necessary to work respectfully and effectively with patients and each other in a culturally diverse work environment. Students should be able to use a variety of methods to collect and utilize accurate demographics, cultural, epidemiological and clinical outcome data for racial and ethnic groups in the service area, and become informed about the ethnic/cultural needs, resources, and assets available to health care workers.
