Overview

Covering the full range of rehabilitation research with a clear, easy-to-understand approach, this resource will help you analyze and apply research to practice. Rehabilitation Research: Principles and Applications examines traditional experimental designs as well as nonexperimental and emerging approaches, including qualitative research, single-system design, outcomes research, and survey research. Clinical case studies and references will enhance your skills as a scientist-practitioner. Written by noted educators Russell Carter and Jay Lubinsky, this book emphasizes evidence-based practice within physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other rehabilitation professions.

Discipline-specific examples are drawn from three major fields: physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology.
Unique! Coverage of non-experimental research includes chapters on clinical case reports and qualitative research, so you can understand a wide range of research methods and when it is most appropriate to use each type.
Expanded Single-Subject Design chapter provides a more thorough explanation and examples of multiple baselines, alternating treatments, and interactions— designs that can be use in everyday clinical practice.
Finding Research Literature chapter includes step-by-step descriptions of literature searches within different rehab professions.
Student resources on a companion Evolve website allow you to review important concepts with exercises and discussion questions, research article analyses, and a downloadable spreadsheet.

Unique! New Evidence-Based Practice chapter provides an overview of the important concepts of EBP and the WHO model of health and disease.
Discussion questions on the companion Evolve website provide you with ideas for further study.
Unique! Research article analyses on Evolve provide more in-depth analysis and demonstrate the writing style you should employ.
New authors Russell Carter and Jay Lubinsky bring an interdisciplinary focus and a stronger emphasis on evidence-based practice.
