Product Overview

Acute care occupational therapy practitioners are essential in preparing patients for discharge, optimizing their function and independence, and helping them resume cherished roles and routines. The challenge of acute care practice is looking beyond a specific medical condition and seeing the whole person. Working within a medical setting also requires an understanding of medical conditions and how illness or injury affects occupational performance. Occupational Therapy in Acute Care, 3rd Edition, is designed to offer a comprehensive guide for occupational therapy practitioners working in acute care, equipping them to address safety and independence with daily routines and roles so patients may return to society and experience improved quality of life.

This new edition updates and expands content, integrating the latest evidence-based practices. New to this edition are chapters on occupational therapy in the emergency department, sleep, social determinants of health, home modifications, case management, readmission prevention, novice practitioners in acute care, and fieldwork.
