Invaluable Resource! June 24, 2011
This textbook was an invaluable resource for planning evidence-based treatment interventions on a stroke unit at a nationally recognized rehabilitation facility. The authors cite the latest literature in research regarding contemporary treatment approaches, as well as providing rationales for why older treatments may no longer be appropriate. In my opinion, those therapists searching for an all-inclusive, function based resource for stroke rehab would be very well served by this textbook. This rental textbook is valuable and worthy, the book was in the condition it was said and I am extremely satisfied with dealing with ecampus. I will definitely order from this seller again.
