This new edition of the classic text aims to meet these challenges. Authors reaffirm the importance of understanding the person as an occupational being and how the occupational therapist’s understanding of human occupation influences evaluation. Aligned with the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, this updated text describes how to accurately evaluate the factors affecting occupational performance and explains the essential and practical aspects of evaluation.
New to this edition is a focus on outcomes assessment, a growing and important area in the occupational therapy profession. Emerging areas of practice are also included, with discussions of evaluation primary care; telehealth, which has become increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic; and the evaluation of groups and populations.
