How to write a physical therapy practice manual
First, you should not at all be afraid to delegate writing parts of the manual to your staff. Different staff will have different views and perspectives, all of which are very valuable. Even if you don’t want to let others take a crack, you should absolutely take it to your staff once it is completed for review and for buy-in.
It's written, now what?
The bottom line
Your practice, your way. By documenting your practice in a manual you can see improvement in almost every aspect of your practice and sleep better at night knowing that you’re prepared for what might come next.
