Occupational Therapy and Stroke guides newly qualified occupational therapists (and those new to the field of stroke management) through the complexities of treating people following stroke. It encourages and assists therapists to use their skills in problem solving, building on techniques taught and observed as an undergraduate.<BR><BR>Written and edited by practising occupational therapists, the book acknowledges the variety of techniques that may be used in stroke management and the scope of the occupational therapist's role. Chapters span such key topics as early intervention and the theoretical underpinnings of stroke care, as well as the management of motor, sensory, cognitive and perceptual impairments. They are written in a user-friendly style and presented in a form that enables the therapist to review the subject prior to assessment and intervention planning. Complex problems are grouped together for greater clarity.<BR><BR>This second edition has been fully revised and updated in line with the WHO ICF model, National Clinical Guidelines and Occupational Therapy standards. It is produced on behalf of the College of Occupational Therapists Specialist Section Neurological Practice.<BR><BR>Occupational therapists working with people who have had a stroke will be delighted to learn that there is a new edition of this popular textbook. The text has been substantially updated in terms of the research evidence presented and has been placed in the context of national developments and initiatives in stroke care. However, it still remains a practical guide, written in user-friendly terms; the addition of good quality illustrations brings the text to life. This is an excellent reference book for both occupational therapists starting out in the stroke field and established practitioners. --Book Jacket.
