This book provides comprehensive coverage of the key issues and perspectives in the current practice of physiotherapy, focussing on the issues that are not taught in 'clinical' texts yet that underpin professional practice. The book helps students gain a good understanding of the physiotherapy profession. It will introduce students to the key practice issues included in professional entry curricula: history of the profession, the workforce and roles of physiotherapists, ethics, law, reflective practice, clinical reasoning, teamwork, and other professional issues within the field of physiotherapy.
