Measurement in Neurological Rehabilitation

£5.99

Product description

The majority of people in the community with moderate to severe disability have neurological diseases. This book focuses on the use of standard measures in the management of people with disability arising from neurological conditions such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, and head injury. It should therefore be of interest to all doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and social workers involved with helping such patients.;It starts by outlining the World Health Organization model of impairment, disability, and handicap, and then discusses some general principles underlying the use of measures. Specific areas such as the assessment of mobility are also discussed. Copies of the commonly used measures are included so that readers can decide for themselves which measures are of most use to them, and to enable them to interpret the results of other people's work.;Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the use of measures in practical day-to-day work. The book will be particularly useful for anyone involved in service audit or evaluation, and anyone planning future services.
