As physiotherapists, we will comprehensively evaluate patients and from this make clinical judgements to diagnose and prognose. We will also treat and when necessary decide to refer other health professionals.
As such, we will:
• examine extensively,
• consider the results of the examination in order to make clinical considerations,
• to formulate a diagnosis, prognosis and treatment measured against outcomes.
As such, we collaborate with our patients, care givers, families and fellow health professionals along a path involving evaluation aimed at diagnosis, considering outcomes and offering treatment aimed at addressing physical, emotional and social wellbeing. As such we are appropriately qualified to examine / assess patients, formulate diagnosis, prognosis and interventions. We may also consider appropriate referral.
