Overview


Rehabilitation medicine is a new and growing specialty. Rehabilitation services are now available in most UK hospitals and rehabilitation has an increasing presence in the community. There is a strong evidence base for the efficacy of rehabilitation and there is no doubt that an active interdisciplinary rehabilitation programme produces real functional benefits for the person with disabilities and their family.

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Rehabilitation second edition, outlines the basic principles of rehabilitation and the key factors that are required for a high quality rehabilitation service. The increasingly important area of technical aids and assistive technology is covered, as well as physical problems. The book outlines the management of cognitive, behavioural and emotional problems, and the rehabilitation needs of people with specific disorders. A new chapter on musculoskeletal pain in common rheumatological conditions has also been included.

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Rehabilitation second edition is a comprehensive text that not only summarizes the management of common symptons and disorders, but also outlines the increasingly evidence base for the efficacy of these techniques. This new edition has been fully revised to appeal to the whole rehabilitation team, including junior doctors training in rehabilitation and associated specialties, senior therapists, psychologists, nurses, physiotherapists, GPs, primary care teams, and intermediate care teams.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kim S. Gladden, BS, BFA, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a second edition of an overview of rehabilitation medicine that covers rehabilitation concepts and service organization, team member roles, and the physiology and treatment of common rehabilitation issues. It provides a well thought out guide for both those starting in the field and those seeking a concise reference for definitions, treatments, goals, and available resources.
Purpose: The authors seek to "make our handbook applicable to a multidisciplinary readership" while providing a broader range of reading lists and imparting "a sense of the real benefits that can accrue from a proper interdisciplinary rehabilitation programme." The book accomplishes these objectives by methodically documenting the concepts, organization, and individual roles of the rehabilitation team before delving into specific issues such as spasticity, incontinence, and others common to rehabilitation management, as well as broader topics such as TBI, SCI, stoke, and neuromuscular disorders.
Audience: The book is written for junior physicians, therapists, nurses, and clinical psychologists, according to the authors. It also would be an excellent primer for medical students rotating in a rehabilitation hospital, or those considering entering the field. It provides a strong overview of the overall process of rehabilitation for practitioners and can be used as an adjunct to texts specific to each field. The authors are well versed in rehabilitation medicine. Michael Barnes and Anthony Ward are past presidents of the British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine. Michael Barnes is an honorary professor of neurological rehabilitation at Newcastle University, consultant neurologist and consultant in rehabilitation medicine, and past president of the World Federation for Neurorehabilitation. Anthony Ward is a professor in rehabilitation medicine at University Hospital of North Staffordshire and has served as president of the Union of European Medical Specialists Section of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine. Sandra Stark is a consultant therapist in neurorehabilitation, professional lead at the Walkergate Park International Centre for Neurorehabilitation and Neuropsychiatry in Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K. Sarah Ryan is a consultant nurse in rheumatology at Staffordshire Rheumatology Centre.
Features: The handbook engages in a discussion and definition of impairment, activity, and participation, citing the WHO International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps from 1980 in contrast with the newer 2001 International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for historical context. It provides a look at the functioning of the rehabilitation team and its members' specific roles, as well as social issues that arise due to impairment and disability. It discusses the physiology, classification, and treatment of common issues such as spasticity, continence, sexuality, and swallowing disorders, and covers basic rehabilitation topics such as TBI, SCI, stroke, and neuromuscular disorders. The book is well organized, easy to read, and adequately covers a broad range of subjects, providing management flowcharts, treatment options, discussion of long term management, and an introduction to technical aids and assistive technology. It could have elaborated on the contribution of speech therapy, which is a crucial component of stroke, TBI, and SCI rehabilitation. However, the book does an admirable job of providing an overview of the rehabilitation process in these areas.
Assessment: This is a welcome contribution to the understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of rehabilitation medicine, and will be useful to both those new to the field as well as those looking for a quick reference on a day-to-day basis.
