Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Paul Mettler, EdD, PT (University of Delaware)
Description: This excellent book was written to explain pharmacological principles to physical and occupational therapists. It is nicely organized into specific areas of pharmacological issues, which makes it a superb reference book as well as an excellent textbook for classroom use.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide students and clinicians with a comprehensive, accurate, and relevant source of how contemporary drug therapy can affect patients receiving physical and occupational therapy. This book certainly meets this overall objective and, in fact, would be a valuable resource for all health professionals.
Audience: Targeted for students and clinicians in physical and occupational therapy, this book should be useful for any member of the allied health team. Its organization makes it a "must" for the department library in any rehabilitation environment.
Features: The chief features of this book are its organization and clearly written and understandable text. It is very easy to navigate through the text to search for specific topics or to review in a more general sense. Charts, tables, and diagrams are kept to a minimum but are totally appropriate.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful book for students and clinicians. It is well written and beautifully organized. The information provided in this text is right on the money for the intended audience. I enthusiastically recommend it to colleagues and commend the author for such a superb contribution.
