The first comprehensive text on occupational therapy management of the CVA patient! Containing the most up-to-date research on stroke rehabilitation without losing a holistic perspective, it combines aspects of background medical information, a critical review and samples of functionally based evaluations, treatment techniques and interventions. The text contains chapters on specific functional aspects of living after a stroke, such as driving, sexuality, leisure, instrumental ADL, mobility and gait, and self-care. In addition, it highlights function-based approaches to working with patients who have balance dysfunction, upper extremity impairment(s), and neurobehavioral deficits. This is an essential educational tool in several settings, including home care, hospitals, community programs and other outpatient programs and long-term care facilities.
