Evaluation in Occupational Therapy: Obtaining and Interpreting Data, 4th Edition
Publisher: AOTA Press
Evaluation, which promotes a greater understanding of the people occupational therapy serves, is the foundation of occupational therapy practice and provides evidence to guide best practices. This new edition of the classic text focuses on the role of the occupational therapist as an evaluator with assessment support provided by the occupational therapy assistant. Chapters discuss the various aspects of a comprehensive evaluation, including screening, evaluation, reassessment, and re-evaluation, and reaffirm the importance of understanding people as occupational beings. This updated edition also explains statistics occupational therapy practitioners are likely to encounter and what they mean.
