Therapy Outcome Measures for Rehabilitation Professionals Excerpt :

Previously published as two separate books for Speech and Language Therapists and for Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Rehabilitation Nursing, this book has now been updated and expanded and combines the two first editions into one. This fits in with the increased amount of team working in rehabilitation, both in hospital and community settings. The book assists with the practical implementation of gathering outcome data on patient/clients receiving treatment. Over the last decade there has been a growing awareness of the importance of being able to gather information that could assist in identifying specific gains related to treatment programmes. This should not only help to identify areas for resource change, but also enable health care professionals to monitor the effectiveness of their treatments with individual clients.

Therapy Outcome Measures Manual Excerpt :

This book provides tools that allow therapists to provide the documentation needed for service provision in today's health care environment.The absolute need to adhere and adapt to the radical changes in health care service delivery have increased the pressure on all service providers to examine methods for reporting results relating to the impact of health services. Information reflecting the effects of treatment is essential in order to modify methods of provision, influence purchasing patterns, and improve overall care. As a result professionals are becoming more conscious of their social, as well as clinical, responsibility to account for the value and benefits of interventions in the form of "Outcome Measurements." The Therapy Outcome Measures Manual allows physical and occupational therapists and rehabilitation nurses to describe the relative abilities/difficulties of a patient in the four domains of impairment, disability, handicap, and well-being, in order to monitor changes over time. Rigorously tested for reliability and clinical validity, this manual contains Core Scale Cards and Outcome Measures Client Detail Forms that are quick and simple to use. This new practical approach allows for the gathering of outcome measures suitable for use across client groups by all health care professionals, and for the comparison of different services.Keywords: Occupational Therapy, Occupational Therapist, OT, Physical Therapy, Nursing, outcomes

Principles of Assessment and Outcome Measurement for Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists Excerpt :

This textbook on assessment and outcome measurement is written for both occupational therapy and physiotherapy students and qualified therapists. It begins by defining what is meant by assessment, outcome, evaluation and measurement and discussing the complexity of therapy assessment and measurement, including the challenge of measuring human behaviour and the impact of factors such as task demand and context, including the environment. Methods of data collection (e.g. observation, interview, standardised testing) and sources (e.g. self-report, proxy) for collecting information about clients are then reviewed, and the main purposes of assessment (e.g. descriptive, evaluative, predictive, discriminative) presented. The book then addresses the topics of standardisation, levels of measurement, reliability, validity and clinical utility. There is a chapter describing and applying models for categorizing levels of function to aid assessment and measurement. The concept of clinical reasoning and reflective practice is then explored. Application of principles is supported through detailed case studies and worksheets and the criteria for test critique and guidelines for choosing a particular assessment approach are discussed.

Occupational Therapy for Stroke Rehabilitation Excerpt :

This book is both an introductory text to the rehabilitation of stroke for student therapists and a reference text for qualified therapists. The layout of the book reflects these needs with Chapters 1-4 assuming a minimal level of understanding of the material. These chapters provide an introduction to the condition of stroke itself, the problern therapists face in assessing and treating stroke patients and therapeutic approaches in occu pational therapy. Prognosis of stroke is also discussed which is an issue taken up in later chapters concemed with expert systems. The use of microcomputers in occupational therapy is discussed throughout the book with particular reference to their direct role during therapy. Chapters 5-7 assume a higher level of understand ing from the reader although students will find the material useful as an insight into the work of the modern-day therapist. Chapter 5 addresses the work carried out in the area of biofeedback; Chapter 6 introduces the concept and uses of databases, and Chapter 7 discusses the versatility of microcomputers, especially in the provision of expert systems for the prognosis of stroke.

Field Trials of Health Interventions Excerpt :

Before new interventions can be used in disease control programmes, it is essential that they are carefully evaluated in "field trials", which may be complex and expensive undertakings. Descriptions of the detailed procedures and methods used in trials that have been conducted in the past have generally not been published. As a consequence, those planning such trials have few guidelines available and little access to previously accumulated knowledge. In this book the practical issues of trial design and conduct are discussed fully and in sufficient detail for the text to be used as a "toolbox" by field investigators. The toolbox has now been extensively tested through use of the first two editions and this third edition is a comprehensive revision, incorporating the many developments that have taken place with respect to trials since 1996 and involving more than 30 contributors. Most of the chapters have been extensively revised and 7 new chapters have been added.
