Summary

Rheumatology Practice in Occupational Therapy is a valuable new handbook focusing on the core area of rheumatology. It provides practical guidance to help occupational therapists treat and manage rheumatic disease in both clinical and community settings and emphasizes a contemporary ‘client-centred’ approach as a fundamental requirement of effective and rewarding OT practice. Drawing upon personal, clinical and theoretical perspectives, it equips the reader with an understanding not only of relevant practical skills but of the clinical reasoning required to modify and apply these skills to the needs of individual people.
