Stroke patients continue to present a major challenge to the rehabilitation professions. In particular, the "rehabilitated" patient with a useless hand remains an all too common phenomenon. This book focuses on the sensory perceptual disturbances caused by stroke which, even if slight can be the crucial factor in poor hand function. A wide-ranging review is presented of the processes of functional reorganisation by which the brain responds to the demands posed by injury as well as by learning. An inescapable conclusion from this literature is that any therapy which aims to harness these processes for the restoration of function after stroke needs to engage the patient's attention and motivation. This is followed by a detailed description of the method of Sensory Re-education developed by the author through long experience with patients and culminating in a clinical trial which establised its effectiveness. While the book is intended primarily for physiotherapists and occupational therapists, it contains much to interest all who are concerned with brain function in health and disease, including neurologists and neuropsychologists, as well as stroke patients and their families. Contents Introduction The Challenge: Stroke and its Aftermath The Effectiveness of Therapy The Quest for a Different Approach Sensory Loss in Stroke: Sensory Testing and the Frequency and Types of Deficit The Functional Implications of Sensory Loss The Theoretical Basis of Sensory Re-education: Sources Peripheral Nerve Lesions; Central Lesions Guide-lines for Intervention Contributions from Psychology: Attention; Motivation The Essentials of Sensory Re-education: The Focus on the Hand The Therapeutic Relationship The Protocol for a Sensory Task Summary The Curriculum I: How to Use the Curriculum Lessons in Touch The Curriculum II: Lessons in Proprioception Lessons in the Recognition of Objects and Their Qualities Suggestions for Homework Validation of the Method: Theoretical Considerations A Controlled Trial The Next Step Wider Applications: Sensory Problems in Standing and Walking After Stroke Cerebral Palsy Other Conditions Wider Applications Conclusion

The sixth edition of this classic book remains a key text for occupational therapists, supporting their practice in working with people with physical impairments, stimulating reflection on the knowledge, skills and attitudes which inform practice, and encouraging the development of occupation-focused practice. Within this book, the editors have addressed the call by leaders within the profession to ensure that an occupational perspective shapes the skills and strategies used within occupational therapy practice. Rather than focusing on discrete diagnostic categories the book presents a range of strategies that, with the use of professional reasoning, can be transferred across practice settings. The new editors have radically updated the book, in response to the numerous internal and external influences on the profession, illustrating how an occupational perspective underpins occupational therapy practice. A global outlook is intrinsic to this edition of the book, as demonstrated by the large number of contributors recruited from across the world. Covers everything the student needs within the physical disorders part of their course Links theory of principles to practice and management Written and edited by a team of internationally experienced OT teachers, clinicians and managers Gives key references and further reading lists for more detailed study Written within a framework of lifespan development in line with current teaching and practice Includes practice scenarios and case studies Focuses on strategies Subtitle reflecting the primacy of occupation in occupational therapy practice Inclusion of practice scenarios to illustrate the application of theory to practice Features such as chapter summaries and key points, providing a quick overview of each chapter A focus on strategies rather than diagnostic categories Consideration of individuals, groups and communities An international perspective Language that is person-centred and inclusive New editorial team endorsed by the former editors including Annie Turner

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.

Illustrated with over 3,400 drawings and full-color photographs, this volume presents a unique multidisciplinary approach to head and neck reconstruction, combining input from otolaryngologists, plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, maxillofacial prosthodontists, oculoplastic surgeons, speech and swallowing therapists, and metabolic support and nutrition specialists. For each anatomic region of the head and neck, the book defines the various defects from the reconstructive surgeon's point of view and presents actual cases demonstrating how each defect was reconstructed. In-depth discussions by leaders in the field allow the reader to appreciate the basic principles as well as the nuances of restoring each defect to an optimal level using regional flaps, free flaps, and prosthetic rehabilitation. The detailed case presentations show flap design and inset to achieve the final result. One of the key advances emphasized is the combination of implant technology and free tissue transfer to achieve the highest level of functional restoration. The reconstruction of patients following failure of radiation therapy is also extensively discussed.

The highly anticipated new edition of Pain: a textbook for health professionals (previous subtitle a textbook for therapists) has undergone a major rewrite in order to reflect the rapid developments in the field of pain management. It highlights an effective and evidence-based method, providing the theoretical basis to help with the assessment and management of persistent pain, while also discussing in depth a range of specific approaches. Pain: a textbook for health professionals is written emphatically from a biopsychosocial perspective. In order to set the scene, the introductory section includes chapters on the patient’s voice and social determinants of pain. This ensures that the deeply personal and social aspects of pain are not lost among the more technical and biological commentary. These aspects provide an overall context, and are revisited in chapters on participation of life roles, work rehabilitation and psychology. The basic science section includes key chapters on the psychology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of pain. This provides a basis for subsequent chapters on specific approaches such as pharmacology, physical therapy and complementary medicine. Pain in specific patient groups, including children, the elderly and those with cancer, are dealt with in separate chapters, as are pain problems such as complex regional pain syndrome and chronic spinal pain. Although the emphasis of the book is on long term pain, acute pain is discussed as a possible precursor and determinant of chronicity. Patient-centred approach to care – advocates listening to the patient’s voice Covers social determinants of pain Guides the reader from pain psychology to the practical application of psychological interventions Learning aids – chapter objectives, reflective exercises, case examples, and revision questions Emphasizes an evidence-based perspective Written by an international team of experts topics such as pain in children and the elderly, pain education for professionals, disability and medico-legal aspects expanded focus on complex regional pain syndrome, acupuncture and psychology improved layout for a better learning and studying experience
