1. Initial data collection

A brief introduction to the case patient and relevant background e.g. medical history, occupation, previous intervention etc. Include a brief summary of the presenting condition. This can be written as dot points. 

2. Identify and prioritize concerns 

Write down your main concerns for your case patient e.g. Not able to work, not able to provide care to others, pain, loss of function etc. Try to be specific eg. “Reduced ability to stand which affects ability to carry out occupational tasks”, rather than “reduced ability to stand”. These can be written as dot points. Please prioritise these concerns based on the case information These can be written as dot points.

3. Identify Relevant Mechanisms/ Theories 

Depending on what the concerns and priorities are, you then need to identify what relevant mechanisms/ theories you need to consider to guide you in the next couple of steps of the process e.g. Information on the condition, mechanism of the condition, person-centered approach/ care, stage of pregnancy, biomechanical issues, home program/ group program.

1. A short literature summary (a few sentences) of the condition itself and how it caused/main features (pathophysiology). This should then be linked to the case

2. Explain possible reasons/ theories for the main concerns (choose only a couple from your list)

3. Consider the clients specific situation (family, occupation, stage of pregnancy) to address whether there are any other things you need to consider or might impact on the person 4. Refer to the literature – should be specific to the literature about the condition as this will help inform your treatment in part 2.

4. Objective Assessment

Identify what assessments might be used for your case. You may use WHO ICF as a guide.

1. List the assessments you feel are necessary to find out more about this person’s situation, in order to plan your intervention in part 2 (consider 3-6 assessments)

2. You can use general assessments as well as condition specific, but make sure you can justify why you are using them and what it will tell you

3. Consider the person’s stage of pregnancy, safety, occupation and day to day requirements when choosing assessments

4. Justify the choice of assessment – a brief sentence is fine. Reference literature to support your choices, when available. Body Structures and Function E.g. Physical examination: palpation, range of movement, muscle strength, posture and gait assessment. Activity & Participation E.g. Limitations at home, occupation
