Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Leslie E. Glaze, PhD (University of Minnesota)
Description: This text surveys the principles of outcome measurement and reviews existing treatment outcomes in disciplinary populations and diverse settings in speech-language pathology. The text is unique due to its rich and detailed overview of the definitions, concepts, and procedures needed to generate valid measures of outcomes in our profession, including treatment efficacy, quality of life, client satisfaction, and cost-benefit analysis.
Purpose: Three fundamental concepts in constructing and interpreting valid outcome measurement are covered: the operational definition (what is to be measured), the evidence needed support the claim (data analysis), and the pragmatic value (functional importance) of the outcome. The objectives are well conceived and timely for critical professional needs.
Audience: This text is bound to become an important primary reference in treatment outcomes for clinical professionals in practice. The issues covered would also provide excellent material for a graduate level seminar. The author is a national leader in treatment outcomes measurement, and her comfort and skill in this area are evident through the breadth and depth of the contents. Furthermore, an impressive range of contributions from disciplined scholars in the field add greatly to the comprehensive coverage.
Features: This text presents treatment outcomes thoroughly from the perspective of many varied contexts, ranging from theoretical and academic approaches to the problem of outcome measurement, to clear descriptions of the applications of outcomes in the clinic and practice, and to the disciplinary-based reviews of our professional experience with outcomes in specific populations or settings.
Assessment: A multifactorial approach to measuring outcomes in speech-language pathology is presented. The result is a text that is unmatched for its range and completeness. This new resource is an outstanding and welcome addition to our professional libraries.
