What is included with this book?


The definitive work on occupational therapy for physical dysfunction returns in its Sixth Edition, with distinguished co-editors and clinical, academic, and consumer contributors. This text provides a current and well-rounded view of the field--from theoretical rationale to evaluation, treatment, and follow-up. Through the Occupational Functioning Model, this edition continues to emphasize the conceptual foundation of practice. New features include Evidence Tables summarizing the evidence supporting each intervention and Assessment Tables summarizing the pros and cons of key assessment tools. A brand-new companion DVD contains video clips demonstrating range of motion, manual muscle testing, construction of hand splints, and transferring patients.
