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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Allen W. Heinemann, PhD, ABPP (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This book addresses an important and timely topic: functional assessment and outcome measurement in medical rehabilitation. It provides an all-in-one summary of functional assessment in rehabilitation, methodological issues in measuring functional status and other rehabilitation outcomes, and a review of various measures. It includes contributions on the environment as a mediating factor in functional assessment, discusses a functional approach to psychological and psychosocial measurement, and presents technological factors and their use in rehabilitation assessment.
Purpose: The editors intend this text to serve as a time-saver for users of functional assessment and evaluation instruments by providing the information needed to evaluate and select appropriate instruments.
Audience: The book is intended for a broad audience of health service students, rehabilitation service providers, and researchers who need information on functional assessment.
Features: The book features eight chapters, including chapters on the theoretical, psychometric, and pragmatic aspects of measuring function in diverse settings and across populations served in medical rehabilitation settings. Two lengthy appendixes describe and display selected functional assessment and rehabilitation outcome measures as well as additional resources on functional assessment information. Behavioral objectives are listed for each chapter. The table of contents and organization should make it easy for users to quickly find the specific information they need.
Assessment: The intended audience is apt to find this to be a uniquely valuable resource. The authors of the various chapters have provided information in a scholarly yet accessible style. They provide a nice balance of topics, all of which are relevant to the various audiences. The authors of the individual chapters and the editors are to be commended for providing a timely, thorough, and well-written contribution that enhances measurement of functional status and evaluation of rehabilitation outcomes.

From a photo of eating utensils with built-up handles and the Functional Independence Measure form, one can surmise the twin goals of rehabilitation medicine: to assess the limitations and abilities of disabled individuals, and to enhance the latter. Dittmar and Gresham School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, U. at Buffalo, State U. of New York lead nine contributors in navigating the methodological and theoretical issues in the selection and administration of functional assessment and outcome measures for psychosocial as well as physiological factors; accessibility issues, and ATs appropriate technology. Assessment resources list. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
