Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An interesting aspect reflected upon by the author is the difference in the clinical reasoning of occupational therapists when treating those from their culture and when practicing in a setting that is ethnically or linguistically different from their own.  The geographical context of New Zealand, used in the example, is an ethnically diverse country where health care is provided within a mixed public/private system.  Cross- cultural factors are addressed in the chapter discussing therapy services for Maori clients in New Zeland. . . Many different aspects of clinical reasoning are covered in this book that would interest an advanced student."  (Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy Article, 1 August 2013)
