Flashcards in Introduction to AIPIE Deck (18):
1

What does AIPIE stand for?

Assess - Interpret - Plan - Implement - Evaluate

2

What does the success of a rehabilitation intervention depend on?

The quality and accuracy of the assessment and evaluation

3

What is the difference between assessment and evaluation?

Assessment: Gathering data & information
Evaluation: Making a judgment based on the collected data & information

4

What is the aim of AIPIE?

To provide an efficient and effective exchange and to develop a rapport between the clinician and patient

5

How should physios view each interaction with patients?

As an opportunity to increase knowledge, skill and understanding

6

How does AIPIE work in the context of the initial assessment?

- Initiating the session
- Gathering information (A, I)
- Physical examination (A)
- Explanation and planning (I, P, I, E)
- Closing the session

7

What are the two types of musculoskeletal assessment?

Subjective (patient history etc) & objective (observations, movements etc)

8

What are the different types of objective musculoskeletal assessments?

- Observation (swelling, brusing)
- Active movements (patient moving the limb)
- Passive movements (physio moving the limb)
- Functional tests (walking, jogging etc)
- Muscle strength & length
- Joint tests
- Palpation (poking to see if/where it hurts)

9

What are the 3 components of assessment?

The history, tests and measures and the systems review

10

What does Interpretation occur?

After taking the history & assessing the patient & when a patient returns and is re-assessed

11

When does Planning occur?

Planning the physical examination, treatment and modifying the plan according to treatment response

12

How should a treatment plan be implemented?

With the patient, at the clinic/home, with structure for review and evaluation

13

When does Evaluation occur?

Immediate response during treatment, response between treatments, progress of recovery

14

What is a problem encountered by clinicians during examination?

Working out how to attach relevance to all of the information gathered from the examination

15

What does physical therapy diagnosis involve?

A combination of hypothesis testing and pattern recognition. A diagnosis can only be made when all other potential causes for symptoms are ruled out

16

What are the elements of Planning?

Problem list, goals (patient's & physio's), review (measures of progress)

17

What is prognosis?

The predicted level of function the patient will attain within a certain time frame, i.e. how good how soon

18

What does prognosis help guide?

The intensity, duration, frequency and justification of the invertention
