Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Shannon Martin, OTD (Touro University Nevada)
Description: This overview of diagnoses and disorders that occupational therapy practitioners encounter in their clients covers topics across the lifespan as well as various populations. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide occupational therapists with a comprehensive resource on the most commonly encountered conditions in their field based on current evidence. This is a worthy objective, and the book provides ideas for appropriate assessment tools and intervention strategies when working with a client with a specific condition.
Audience: The book is intended as resource for all occupational therapy students, practitioners, and researchers.
Features: It covers a wide variety of conditions, organized by topic area, and each topic is formatted in a similar fashion to allow readers to get easy access to pertinent information. Areas of interest across the lifespan are logically organized by body system and function. Each topic is similarly presented, and has a description of the disorder, cause, relevant assessment tools, anticipated problem areas, treatment and intervention ideas, precautions and prognosis, and outcome. Additionally, each section identifies commonly used models of practice with this disorder as well as the members of interprofessional team and role delineation. The book includes a CD-ROM, which contains a comprehensive reference list for each topic. The level of evidence of each resource is indicated next to it, further supporting the importance and value of evidence-based practice in the field. This book is an excellent resource for occupational therapists. However, it is not intended to be an all-encompassing resource on each topic area.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for all occupational therapists. This much-needed updated edition includes a variety of new and emerging topic areas. This resource is greatly appreciated as it is one of the only of its kind specific to occupational therapy practice.
