Each example includes learning objectives, guiding questions, discussion, and references and corresponds to one or more of the four preferred practice patterns (Musculoskeletal, Neuromuscular, Cardiovascular/Pulmonary, and Integumentary) as outlined by the Guide. The variety in type of cases offered makes this resource appropriate for use with students over the span of a course as well as for clinicians wishing to work through more challenging patient scenarios. Content utilizing current terminology reflects trends in current practice and familiarizes readers with the structure of the Guide to Physical Therpist Practice, 2nd Edition. The real-life examples expose students to a range of both unusual and familiar clinical experiences they might not face in their studies, as well as enabling current clinicians to learn from their colleagues' experiences. Input from both a clinician and a professor provides a nice blend of clinical experience and educational insight. All cases are new, 46 in all, compiled from real-life scenarios experienced by physical therapy practitioners. Content includes more detailed information in areas such as patients, personal histories, culture, environment, and lifestyle. New topics encompass a broad range of issues, including documentation, women's health, clinical education, ethics, and assistive technology. Evidence-based examples and additional references meet the curriculum standards for physical therapy education. Pedagogical features, such as learning objectives, guiding questions, photos and illustrations, make the reference useful in the educational setting.

The very interactive nature of the case history approach is engaging and provides the opportunity to work through many of the steps of the clinical decision-making process. Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy: Management and Case Studies, Second Edition also includes answer guides for the questions posed in the assessment and management chapters, as well as for the twenty-four cases. New in the Second Edition: · Twenty-four carefully selected evidence-based cases designed to go "hand-in-hand" with chapter topics · An international perspective that is relevant to physical therapy practice in several countries · Detailed chapter on noninvasive ventilation and mechanical ventilation · Several chapters describe early mobilization and exercise training for a range of cardiopulmonary patient groups including those admitted to an intensive care unit · Faculty will benefit from the "Talk Me Through" PowerPoint slides, which provide a great opportunity for independent learning and complement classroom teaching The two-fold evidence and case-based learning approach used by Dr. W. Darlene Reid, Frank Chung, and Dr. Kylie Hill allows for a more engaging experience.

Case Studies in Sport Law

Publisher: Human Kinetics

ISBN: 1492585645

Category: Law

Page: 424

View: 1715

Case Studies in Sport Law, Second Edition, provides students with specific examples and perspectives of some of the most significant cases in sport law in an accessible tone that is free of legal jargon. The text is an ideal companion for non-law students who are seeking clarity and context for legal issues commonly encountered in sport management and sport law settings. The 87 cases provide real-life applications for students and scholars of sport management. This updated second edition of Case Studies in Sport Law contains one new case study to provide a more contemporary example while maintaining the most significant precedent cases. The text is easily incorporated as a supplement to course studies, especially for its recommended companion text, Introduction to Sport Law, Second Edition. These two texts were designed with the other in mind, and the structures match each other in order of topics presented so that students can easily cross-reference the two to obtain the best understanding of sport law. The 87 cases in Case Studies in Sport Law have been carefully curated by a team of experts in the field and represent many of the multifaceted aspects of sport law. Some of the areas covered in the text are school districts, colleges and universities, interscholastic and recreational programs, professional sport franchises, sporting goods manufacturers and trademarks, and governing bodies. This broad approach encourages students to understand the impact of legal issues on the sport industry, including many of the areas that students are hoping to pursue as a career. Case Studies in Sport Law offers condensed versions of each case as opposed to the full legal proceedings, which enables students to grasp key concepts of the case instead of wading through legal jargon. The cases are divided into the main topics that are most prevalent in sport law courses: agency law, antitrust law, constitutional law, contract law, employment law, intellectual property, labor law, products liability, risk management, statutory law, Title IX, tort law, and the U.S. legal system. This is an easy-to-follow format that allows instructors and readers easy selection of cases based on the topic at hand. In addition to the abridged court cases, each section provides introductory information to prepare students on the type of law that will be examined and key concepts to bear in mind while reading. Further, each case study ends with review questions that can test student comprehension, be used for review, and prompt in-class discussions. Answers to these review questions are in the instructor guide, which is free to course adopters and available at www.HumanKinetics.com/CaseStudiesInSportLaw. Litigation and lawsuits in sport are increasing; therefore, managers and operators must maintain a thorough understanding of legal practices. Case Studies in Sport Law is the ideal text to supplement a sport management or sport law class and bolster student comprehension of sport law issues, and it is a supreme reference in the professional library of all practitioners in college, high school, professional, and recreational sport settings.
