Product Overview

Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines for Adults With Neurodegenerative Diseases

 

By: Katharine Preissner, EdD, OTR/L

 

Using an evidence-based perspective and key concepts from the Occupa­tional Therapy Practice Framework, this guideline provides an overview of the occupational therapy process for adults with neurodegenerative diseas­es, specifically multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral scle­rosis, and Parkinson’s disease. It defines the occupational therapy domain and interventions that occur within the boundaries of acceptable practice. Topics include interven­tions focusing on activity and participation such as fatigue management, health promotion, and functional mobility; interventions focusing on client factors and performance skills, such as cognitive or memory training and exercise or motor training; self-management and cognitive–behavioral strategies to improve task and occupational performance; and palliative care.
