Abstract

[Extract] Clinical assessment is part of the clinical reasoning process and involves identifying problems through the accurate recognition and interpretation of normal and abnormal signs and symptoms within a patient’s presentation. Assessment is a process of gathering information about the patient by reviewing medical records, interviewing the patient and completing an objective assessment. Thorough assessment will allow the therapist to prioritize patient problems and establish a measurable baseline for evaluating response to physiotherapy interventions. It is important to recognize that assessment is a continuous process which occurs before, during and after each intervention.
