Overview

This unique reference is the first to combine physical therapy and occupational therapy in one comprehensive volume. Each chapter includes a synopsis of the material, background information, pathology, a description of the assessment tools, sample assessment procedures, a summary of pertinent research, a list of references, and a short glossary. Topics discussed range from statistical theory to surgical experiences to the patient's ability to be self-sufficient. This text provides the reader with an excellent conceptual foundation in assessment.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary Kielhofner, DrPh, OTR (Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This book is designed as a comprehensive discussion of assessment in occupational and physical therapy. It begins with an overview of measurement theory. Subsequent chapters discuss assessment approaches in chapters clustered along the lines of body systems, functional processes, age, target behavior, and setting.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a broad and comprehensive presentation and discussion of assessment in the two professions. It stresses the common theme of functional assessment, which cuts across the professions.
Audience: The book is intended to reach an audience of graduate students and advanced practitioners.
Features: It includes a wide range of assessments, along with visually pleasing illustrations and use of photographs. A variety of authors contributed chapters on a wide range of topics.
Assessment: The book suffers from too broad a purpose, uneven writing, and detail. Moreover, it does not cohere well in several regards. The book begins with a discussion of measurement, but does not return systematically to these concepts to examine the assessments that are presented. In fact, much of the coverage of assessments is more appropriate to an entry-level or undergraduate discussion than to a graduate or advanced discussion of assessments. The book also suffers from the use of a multiple taxonomy in creating the chapters (based on body systems, functional areas, age, context, target behaviors). As a result, there is a fair amount of redundancy in the text. But more importantly, the book comes across as a patchwork rather than an integrated whole. The book aims too broadly, its discourse is not pitched to a single level of comprehension, and its organization does not flow from a single logical premise. In the end, the text may be useful as an occasional reference, but it does not seem to fit readily into an apparent reader niche.
