Be prepared for the growing opportunities in community and population health practice with the 3rd Edition of this groundbreaking resource.

The New Edition reflects the convergence of community and population health practice with expanded content on health promotion, well-being, and wellness. Drs. Scaffa and Reitz present the theories underpinning occupational therapy practice in community and population health. Then, the authors provide practical guidance in program needs assessment, program development, and program evaluation.

Both new practitioners and students will find practice-applicable coverage, including expanded case examples, specific strategies for working in the community, and guidance on securing funding for community and population health programs.

Reviews of the 2nd Edition

"This book is highly recommended not only to occupational therapy students and educators but to occupational therapy practitioners as well. For those employed in traditional hospital settings, the abundance of information may certainly help them expand their thinking about the scope of occupational therapy practice."
—Karen Butler, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy

"The text is easily readable and contains chapter key terms and learning objectives which help accentuate information. This text provides a much-needed resource for occupational therapists who currently are, or plan to in the future, practice in the community."
 —Peggy Wittman, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Occupational Therapy in Health Care Journal

"Very comprehensive. Reviews a variety of possible settings for community practice and appears to cover the process from the beginning on through."
—Anne Marie Knecht, MA, OTR/L, Florida International University, Miami, FL
