Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca K. Wojcik, MHPE, PT (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book addresses physical therapy professional issues, patient evaluation, and patient treatment in the home health setting.
Purpose: The purpose is to help the practitioner design programs for total client care.
Audience: The target audience for this book is entry-level and advanced students or practitioners in physical therapy. Depending on the context of this information in an educational program, the book would be useful as a primary text or reference text.
Features: This book contains many black-and-white line drawings, photographs, and charts that add to the quality of the book. The references and bibliographic information are comprehensive. The use of divisions and subdivisions in the table of contents and index facilitates using the book as a reference. The size of the book, use of wide side margins to allow note taking, and frequent use of cases to illustrate points make the book attractive and increase the ease of use.
Assessment: The author is well-respected in this field and has organized a broad base of contributors. This book is comprehensive and fills a large void in an increasingly important area of practice.
