Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karin J Edwards, MSPT (Providence Health & Services)
Description: Part of the Physical Therapy Case Files series, this book describes 31 cases with patient scenarios, information about the neurological conditions, and evidence-based treatments. It joins other books in the series on orthopedics and acute care.
Purpose: Patient scenarios define cases for instructors to educate and maximize students' abilities to use evidence for patient care. The book partially meets the purpose with patient integration into some of the cases.
Audience: The book targets students and serves as a reference for practitioners who infrequently treat patients with neurological conditions. The editor has selected 24 contributors with neurological experience to provide true-to-life scenarios.
Features: Each chapter stands alone and starts with a patient encounter. Key definitions, objectives, physical therapy considerations, and health condition information support an understanding of the patient's situation. The chapters continue with evaluation and diagnosis; plan of care and interventions; and evidence-based recommendations. The authors include information pertinent to the patient scenario in nearly 60 percent of the cases. The other cases provide general knowledge. Research and current evidence substantiate the cases. Strength of Recommendations Taxonomy (SORT) provides a rating for selected evidence-based treatments. A few comprehensive questions and detailed answers allow readers to test their understanding. Chapters end with references specific to the case material.
Assessment: This book offers excellent information for students and practitioners looking for improved neurological understanding. I appreciate the cases that include ideas specific to patients' conditions and treatment. Chapters that focus on general information provide a good resource, but don't give as much insight into evaluating, planning for, and treating different patients. The table of contents doesn't list the cases, but refers readers to lists near the index. It would be helpful to chronologically list the cases by health condition in the table of contents. Additional photographs and figures would complement the text and improve understanding.
