Finally, a resource manual to help both the employer and the physical therapist develop tools to measure competence.
Eight of the most common methods are reviewed in this Resource Manual: case study, chart review, patient outcomes, employer performance review, portfolios, clinical specialization, self-assessment, and competence performance checklists. Samples are provided, along with an extensive list of references and resources.
Employers can use the manual to develop methods for assessing their employees' competence. Clinicians can use it to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their practices. And, as a self-assessment tool, the manual can help guide professional development.
