NU672 Unit 5 Assignment – Clinical Preparation Journal Herzing
As you have learned from several of your readings, choosing a therapy modality is not always an easy or straightforward process. Multiple observations and assessment methods are often employed to reach a diagnosis and then match a therapy that has been shown to be effective.
Each week as assigned, you will record specific components of the therapy modality/modalities we are learning for the week. This will help solidify your new knowledge and allow you to make correlations between therapy modalities and to which diagnoses they can be applied or when they can be utilized in practice.
For each therapy modality you will identify the following:
Identify the therapy modality by name.
Identify the originator (creator) of the specific modality.
Identify a specific diagnosis or population this modality is especially helpful with.
Note specific focus, emphasis, and/or goals of this modality.
Therapy modalities (define criteria for each modality):
Use the Portfolio Template Therapy Modalities to complete your portfolio assignments. Your information can be in a bulleted format or just a couple sentences for each criterion listed. However, you must use APA citations. You are NOT required to write this in a paper format. Turn in one document for each of this week’s topics. (However, create a file on your desktop to compile your portfolio as you move through the term. This will ensure you can have easy access once you begin clinicals and practice.)
Use the grading rubric. ALL criteria must be present to receive credit.
