Topic of the Month – Acute Care

Every month the Physiopedia team focus on updating pages centered around one topic. This enables us to keep improving all of our existing pages as well as create new ones. The team often make changes to referencing and formatting but best of all they find the latest evidence and update the pages accordingly. This month the topic is Acute Care.

This topic is extremely diverse and covers anything from broad well-defined physiotherapy practice such as respiratory to more niche areas such as haematology. Therefore the articles within this category can be broken down into different domains:

  • Hospital Structure and Services
  • Interprofessional Collaboration aka MDT Working
  • Patient Safety
  • Medical Diagnoses and Treatments
  • Tests and Imaging
  • Lines and Equipment
  • Physiotherapy Assessment, Treatment & Discharge Planning

This is a mammoth topic to choose so lots of pages will be improved but also some will be missed. If you see a page you’d like to see improved make sure you let us know!
