Infectious Diseases


Many things are of vital importance to therapists but I feel knowledge of infectious disease to be of utmost importance. Therapists have direct skin to skin contact and must be able to visually recognize such diseases as our clients may be too embarrassed to reveal a condition. We also need the knowledge of how the disease is transmitted in order to protect ourselves and the clients. I wonder if it is appropriate to ever use surgical gloves?
