Product Overview

Edited by Charles H. Christiansen, EdD, OTR, OT(C), FAOTA, and Kathleen M. Matuska, MPH, OTR/L

Foreword by Gary Kielhofner, DrPH, OTR/L, FAOTA

People experience and value their health in terms of its impact on their lives or on their ability to participate in life. Thus, occupational therapy professionals strive for meaningful occupational performance as an outcome with clients, recognizing that the physical, mental, and emotional health are enablers to that outcome. Occupational therapy services address aspects of care that mean the most to clients.

This edition reflects the terminology of the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework and content in light of the new realities of health care, including interventions strategies beyond adaptation to ADL and IADL challenges. Strategies, including evaluation and planning, are featured on topics such as

  • ADLS and IADLs
  • Developmental disabilities in children and adults
  • Rheumatic diseases
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Stroke
  • Movement disorders
  • Upper-extremity amputation
  • Severe burns
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Psychiatric disabilities
  • Vision loss
  • Sexuality and disability
  • Assistive technology
  • Environmental adaptations
  • Home-based care.

The 20 chapters include nearly 300 tables, figures, and case examples to illustrate key points, as well as "Highlights" boxes. This book is valuable to students, practitioners, and researchers who need current information on the breadth of occupational therapy's services.
