How do you respond to a patient that doesn’t want to participate in therapy? This is a paper from the August 2016 PTJ, but I only read it just recently. I had my current student read it, and would highly recommend anyone in the SNF/TCU or acute care (or even HH) read it. It really opened my eyes to how better interact with the reluctant patient.
