Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tiffany L Boggis, MBA, OTR/L (Pacific University)
Description: This soft-cover workbook is a collection of 30 case studies of adults with physical and psychological conditions, organized into nine parts according to healthcare setting.
Purpose: Authored by two occupational therapy educators, the purpose is to assist student learning and promote critical thinking such that there may be possible choices in the clinical-decision making process, to better prepare students for clinical fieldwork experiences.
Audience: With the guidance of an educational instructor, the book is designed for use with students of occupational therapy. Cases may be analyzed individually or in small groups such that case results may be compared to illustrate differences in approaches that lead to effective outcomes. The authors suggest that classes in both professional and technical programs could work on the same case to demonstrate how the OTR/COTA relationship works.
Features: Each case contains information about a client's physical, emotional, cultural, and interpersonal attributes. Evaluation results from case histories and occupational therapy assessments are given. This information is the basis for a guideline for the student to progress through the ensuing questions on goals, treatment planning, and discharge planning. Each response affects the answer to the following questions. Impacting issues related to safety/precautions, self-care/work/leisure, equipment/adaptations, patient/family education, and neuromuscular, cognitive/perceptual, and psychosocial components are covered in the questions.
Assessment: This workbook fills a niche since most case studies in current texts address only treatment planning and goal-setting, and do not account for the real-life situations that practicing therapists encounter once treatment is initiated. The authors present the cases to press the student to integrate and apply knowledge across curriculum course content and facilitate a reduction in the tendency for students to attempt to derive "the one right course of action." The cases may be easily adapted by the creative instructor to focus or redirect case discussions. The questions posed at the end of each case provide rich thought for discussion. A recommendation for a future edition may be to include cases that address the life-span continuum, including conditions and settings common to children and adolescents.
