McGraw-Hill Professional Launches AccessPhysiotherapy An Online, Media-Rich Educational Resource for Students and Educators
NEW YORK, March 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AccessPhysiotherapy™ (http://www.accessphysiotherapy.com), an essential online resource for physical therapy (PT) students and educators integrating renowned medical resources with rich multimedia and customizable curriculum functionality, is the latest product to be launched in McGraw-Hill Professional's acclaimed suite of digital learning platforms for medical students and physicians.
Continuing the innovations begun with McGraw-Hill's respected Access medical and scientific online learning platforms, AccessPhysiotherapy provides searchable, full-text access to eleven leading McGraw-Hill physical therapy and internal medicine titles, including Orthopaedic Examination, Evaluation, and Intervention; Imaging in Rehabilitation; and Pharmacology for the Physical Therapist, along with interactive imaging content, curricular management tracking tools and tests, more than 80 videos, an exclusive series of neurology lectures, and image banks.
"Physical therapy students and educators have long had a need for specific content that addresses the unique needs of their field," says Scott Grillo, vice president and medical publisher of McGraw-Hill Professional. "AccessPhysiotherapy was developed with these needs in mind, and provides a multimedia-rich solution to the educational challenges faced by current and future PTs."
Bringing together content from across McGraw-Hill Education, AccessPhysiotherapy also includes Anatomy and Physiology Revealed, a powerful cadaver dissection tool that offers users an unparalleled ability to explore the body and its systems. In the coming months, the site will also feature videos from Clinical Sports Medicine, a DVD developed by McGraw-Hill Australia for the critically-acclaimed textbook by the same name.
AccessPhysiotherapy features the innovative Custom Curriculum, a powerful online tool that educators can use to assign, manage, and track the progress of student assignments. For program directors, AccessPhysiotherapy represents a significant step forward in curriculum development and design, offering detailed assignment monitoring, student assessment tests and tools, and student progress reports, as well as an ability to share assignment designs with other programs. The Custom Curriculum allows PT students to view available topics from their program director, as well as their own individual progress by activity.
Other features include a drug database providing critical information on medication, over 1,200 self-assessment questions, a My AccessPT feature that allows users to save their own libraries of images, and full Bibliography and Reference areas. Like other Access products, new content will be added to the site monthly, with additional titles and videos to follow later in the year. The advisory board includes editor-in-chief Mark Dutton, PT, who is currently a Program Director for the West Penn Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh, and Annie Burke-Doe, MPT, PhD, director of clinical education at the University of Saint Augustine.
