This dynamic online database is intended for the use of students studying Physical Therapy. It is a digital collection of case studies developed from live patients with multiple diagnosis and medically complex needs. It is intended primarily as an instructional tool, and was developed through a partnership between the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey Departments of Physical Therapy and Masters of Instructional Technology.
Dynamic databases are web based collections of information that can be added to and updated. Any changes in the database are immediately reflected on the web pages that use the database. In the case of the MCPD, it allows you to add cases to the collection of cases in order to help others learn how to diagnose and develop treatment plans for a wide variety of patients and ailments.
Initially, students studying physical therapy will find it helpful to search a case and review it. You can review the medical history, social history, assessments and lab results of these medically complex patients. You may submit an intervention to any case. You can also submit references that support the case.
Eventually, you may want to submit a case that you have investigated and developed. There are tutorials that explain how to prepare and upload a case study.
A worksheet that will help you to develop an intervention is located within the database.
To search the database for case studies, click CASES.
To review tutorials, click TUTORIALS.
To submit case references, an intervention, or a case, click SUBMIT.
When you have completed all your work within the database, click EXIT, and you will be able to exit the database.
