• involvement of the patient and carer in goal-setting and decision-making (client-centred practice)
• use of outcome measures to evaluate the effects of treatment in everyday practice
• use of case studies to illustrate clinical practice
• scientific evidence of treatment effectiveness

• an introductory chapter on rehabilitation in practice
• one on respiratory management
• and two covering self management and falls under the section entitled Skill Acquisition and Learning
