Overview

"This text provides a wonderful summary of current issues in functional assessment along with providing many of the actual instruments in a format that simplifies their immediate use in the clinic. The book would make an excellent resource for any rehabilitation department, a guide for rehabilitation professional curriculum development in the area of functional assessment, and a great resource for physical and occupational therapy students interested in rehabilitation practice." ——Physical Therapy Case Reports

"A true source book for professionals who need a dictionary of the language of functional assessment, a snapshot of where the rehabilitation industry is today, and a road map for where rehab must go in the very near future in this critical arena."——Topics in Language Disorders

Practical and unique, this is the only book to cover the instruments used by all rehabilitation disciplines. And better yet, it's the only book to describe and/or display instruments——more than 40 that are used in general rehabilitation. A leading—edge resource, Functional Assessment and Outcome Measures for the Rehabilitation Health Professional helps you select the best outcomes measurement instruments; assess and measure function in physical, social, emotional, and vocational areas; and plan targeted interventions to promote independent living. Readers learn how to choose the best of current functional assessment measures and recognize the advantages and disadvantages of functional assessment, disease—specific, and general health measures.
