New Fifth Edition!
As a part of the health care team, massage therapists need to understand how to effectively communicate, be it with a client, other health care providers, insurance professionals, and members of the legal field, and understand the measurement tools and documentation forms they will encounter as they practice. Hands Heal is the only text that provides crucial guidance on taking client histories, setting functional goals, and documenting treatment outcomes.
This fifth Edition of Hands Heal offers massage therapy students comprehensive coverage of communication, assessment, and electronic and paper documentation skills, from taking client histories and setting functional goals to documenting treatment outcomes. Reflecting the latest changes in the curriculum and the profession, the book is more ELAP compliant, includes changes to ICD-10 and CPT codes, and updates to HIPAA regulations. The new edition incorporates the effect of the Affordable Care Act on manual therapists and offers increased emphasis on communication with doctors and other healthcare providers. Integrated electronic charting (EHR) coverage, new case studies and new case study types, and compelling new online videos help students master course concepts and prepare for practice.
In this new, updated edition, author Diana Thompson relies on her vast experience as a massage practitioner, research consultant and educator to create a comprehensive resource on communication, insurance billing and case report writing for massage therapy students and practitioners. Key features of this exciting new edition include:
