Flashcards in Introduction to AIPIE Deck (18):

What does AIPIE stand for?

Assess - Interpret - Plan - Implement - Evaluate


What does the success of a rehabilitation intervention depend on?

The quality and accuracy of the assessment and evaluation


What is the difference between assessment and evaluation?

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


What is the aim of AIPIE?

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


How should physios view each interaction with patients?

As an opportunity to increase knowledge, skill and understanding


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


What are the two types of musculoskeletal assessment?

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


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)


What are the 3 components of assessment?

The history, tests and measures and the systems review


What does Interpretation occur?

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


When does Planning occur?

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


How should a treatment plan be implemented?

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


When does Evaluation occur?

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


What is a problem encountered by clinicians during examination?

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


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


What are the elements of Planning?

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


What is prognosis?

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


What does prognosis help guide?

The intensity, duration, frequency and justification of the invertention
