Handbook of Occupational Therapy for Adults With Physical Disabilities by Drs. William Sit and Marsha Neville provides quick and essential information for occupational therapists that are new to the adult practice setting.
This handbook is primarily organized by body system into six sections:
- Occupational performance as a whole
- Central nervous system
- Peripheral nervous system, cranial nerves, and sensory system
- Musculoskeletal system
- Cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, and integumentary systems
- Endocrine, digestive, urinary, and reproductive system
At the beginning of each section, you will find a case study based on clinical experience that embodies the chapter subject. Within each section information is broken down into important aspects of the evaluation process, and then followed by the implications of each system on occupational therapy intervention. Handbook of Occupational Therapy for Adults With Physical Disabilities also includes a summary chart where readers can quickly and easily find the purpose, context, form, cost, and contact information for each assessment.
Handbook of Occupational Therapy for Adults With Physical Disabilities is ideal for occupational therapy students, recent graduates, and practitioners who are newly entering an adult physical disability practice setting.
