This course is Part 3 in a five-part series on documentation with a focus on reporting skill and progress and how you can get the best out of your documentation. This course documents how to show skill as a therapist with low-level patients. One low-level patient goes through an initial evaluation and performs different balance, muscle strength, and endurance tests with modifications for her specific needs.
