Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health Excerpt :

Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health is the first and only text tailored specifically for students seeking a structured foundation of knowledge of tests and related assessment practices commonly used by health professionals in their various fields. While other textbooks commonly used in this area of study often offer a broader and more sweeping look at assessment practices and theories, Assessment in Rehabilitation and Health focuses closely on the standardized and clinical methods of health assessment in regards to rehabilitation counseling, communication and speech disorders, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, physiotherapy, and physical medicine. Each chapter is structured using the common framework provided by the World Health Organization's International Classification of Disability, Functioning and Health (ICF). This framework, which is considered the gold standard by numerous health institutions around the world in regards to concepts and practices in rehabilitation and health, allows students to gain knowledge and learn practices that are consistent with this widely accepted and highly regarded ICF model. These chapters not only follow this framework, but are also all organized to include the following topics: professional and legal definitions and theories that form the foundation for assessment methods; a brief history of the research and practice methods pertinent to each chapter topic; a listing of assessment methods commonly used in rehabilitation and health related practices; and a discussion of cultural, legislative, and professional issues that impact the use of the specific assessment methods.

The Assessment Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Everyday Memory Problems Excerpt :

In the World Library of Psychologists series, international experts present career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest work—extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings and their major theoretical and practical contributions. This volume of self-selected papers recognises Professor Barbara A. Wilson's major contribution to the study of neuropsychology. Published over a 25-year period, the papers included here address the assessment, treatment and evaluation of rehabilitation provided to people who have memory difficulties arising from an injury or illness affecting the brain. This selection of papers includes work on errorless learning, the natural history of the development of compensatory memory systems, paging systems developed to enhance independent daily living for memory impaired people and single-case experimental designs to appraise the response of individual patients. The final section includes a practical framework for understanding compensatory behaviour, a model of cognitive rehabilitation and a discussion of the dilemmas created by the different aims of neuroscience as opposed to those of clinicians. This book will be of great interest to clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists, along with anyone who is interested in reducing the impact of memory problems on people who have suffered brain injury.

The vegetative state - a condition in which someone is awake but unaware with no evidence of a working mind - is both emotive and challenging. This condition and that of someone who gains partial recovery of mental and neurological functions - known as the minimally conscious state - have provoked intense debate and considerable interest amongst scientists, health care professionals, ethicists, philosophers and lawyers. This unique special issue unites many experts in the field to review and discuss the many advances made in our understanding of these conditions. The strength of this special issue lies in the wide range of topics discussed - from definitions and diagnostic criteria to hotly debated topics such as whether a person in the vegetative state is truly unaware. This edition will serve as both a useful reference to those caring for people in these conditions as well as to those investigating the physiological basis of human consciousness.
