Book Description :

This book is written with occupational therapy students in mind, as a guide to newly qualified occupational therapists and for those returning to work after a break in service. Over the years I have been asked many times by newly appointed staffwhether I could recommend a book to prepare them for working with orthopaedic patients. I hope this small volume will fill the gap in the literature on the subject, and that it will be useful as a quick reference book. I hope it mayaiso fall into the hands ofthose in other disciplines and enable them to understand and appreciate the contribution of the occupational therapist to the rehabilitation team. This is the era ofjointreplacement, with ever-increasing demand forprimary and revision surgery. Improved implants and improved surgical techniques are constantly being researched. Surgery for bone tumour is less mutilating and more hopeful than ever before. Operations to release tendons and soft tissue contractures, tendon transfers, osteotomies, spinal fusion, joint fusion, etc. are performed on patients with neurological problems, thus improving function and appearance and preventing further deformity. These are some examples of procedures in this exciting and fast-developing field, while hospital beds are occupied for an ever shorter period of time and the potential for occupational therapy is enormous. 'If surgery is to be successful, the importance of assessing the patient as a human being cannot be over-emphasised' (Souter, 1987). This is precisely the approach of the occupational therapist.

Book Description :

To respond to the renewed focus by the occupational therapy profession upon occupation, the fifth edition of Activity Analysis and Application has been updated and renamed to reflect this latest emphasis. While Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition maintains the sequential process of learning activity analysis, this step-by-step approach now helps students analyze activity for the purpose of optimizing the client's occupational performance. Gayle Hersch, Nancy Lamport, and Margaret Coffey successfully guide students through the development of clinical reasoning skills critical to planning a client's return to meaningful engagement in valued occupations. The authors utilize a straightforward teaching approach that allows students to progress developmentally in understanding both the analysis and application of activity to client intervention. The Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, with a prominent focus on occupation as this profession's philosophical basis for practice, has been incorporated in the updated forms and explanations of the activity analysis approach. Activity Analysis: Application to Occupation, Fifth Edition is a worthy contribution to the professional education of occupational therapists in furthering their understanding and application of activity and occupation. Features: The newly titled Client-Activity Intervention Plan that synthesizes the activity analysis into client application. Objectives at the beginning of each unit. Discussion questions and examples of daily life occupations. A Web site including 5 forms where students and practitioners can download and print information for class assignments and clinical settings.
