Evidence-based practice (EBP) is one of the driving forces in current healthcare practice. Occupational therapists recognise the need for research and for an evidence-based approach to interventions, but can need guidance on how to do this. This book aims to make evidence-based practice accessible and relevant to occupational therapists using examples from therapy practice. It will provide them with the skills to search for and access the required evidence to underpin or question practice.

Publication of the first edition of this book in 2000 signaled the receptiveness of the occupational therapy community toward evidence-based practice. This second edition, as well as providing practical information on EBP, also addresses how it has evolved within the culture of occupational therapy. The author considers the definition of evidence-based occupational therapy, the impact of research governance, and social care influences on suitable evidence. Implementation issues are covered in more depth, including change management and practice guidelines. Three new chapters have been added on evidence from other sources; carrying out a review of the evidence and developing and using guidelines for practice.

Occupation Analysis in Practice is the essential book for all future and current occupational therapists. It offers a practical approach to the analysis of occupations in real world practice.

The book frames occupation as the key component for analysis and builds upon previous work limited to analysis at the activity level. It examines the interests, goals, abilities and contexts of individuals, groups, institutions and communities, along with the demands of the occupation. It presents examples of occupation analysis in different practice context including working with children, health promotion, indigenous health, medico-legal practice; mental health and occupational rehabilitation.

The book has four sections. Section 1 introduces theoretical perspectives of the concept of occupation analysis and how such analysis relates to particular models of Occupational Therapy practice and the generic World Health Organisation International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health. Section 2 discusses analysis of particular components of occupation that support practice. These include culture, spirituality, home and community environments as well as self-care and leisure. Section 3 applies analysis of occupations to particular specialties encountered in practice. Section 4 considers the application of Occupation Analysis within professional reasoning and goal setting.

FEATURES

This book engages with the renewed focus on the centrality of occupation in occupational therapy. It is informed by a subtle but significant shift in thinking, towards a recognition that humans are occupational beings, not merely that occupation is an important part of human life. The emergence of this publication is therefore timely amidst the debate on occupational science.


The book is aimed at students of occupational therapy and interested clinicians. It is designed to support them to work in a way that is grounded in and focussed on occupation. The chapters follow a common structure, which underpins a stimulating array of content. This extends from an examination of conceptual issues such as creativity and flow to clinical examples of practising in an occupational way. The final section provides a glimpse of new practice frontiers, including working with refugees and population health.

  • Develops the skills and self-confidence occupational therapists need to be effective group leaders
  • Covers the functional and performance aspects necessary for occupational therapy intervention, including client handling, and structuring and communication skills.
  • Discusses new ways of addressing common concerns and issues in various intervention settings
  • Offers ideas and techniques for using higher-level interventions, such as psychodrama and the Therapeutic Spiral model
  • Helps readers to design effective group experiences that allow their clients to ?work on themselves? both inside and outside of the group

Written by an esteemed expert with decades of practical experience in the field, with a chapter from Louise Fouché, an accomplished occupational group therapist and developer of OTIGM, and foreword by Professor Emerita Sharon Brintnell, former President of World Federation of Occupational Therapy (WFOT): Occupational Group Therapy is a must-have teaching manual and guide for undergraduate and post-graduate occupational therapy students, and for practitioners looking to increase their use of group work as a therapeutic intervention.

Now in its fourth edition 'Tyldesley and Grieve's Muscles, Nerves and Movement' has established itself as the leading textbook for the study of movement by occupational therapists. The book provides students with a sound understanding of the way in which bones, joints, muscles and nerves allow the body to perform movement during daily activities.

Early chapters provide a foundation for the study of movement, with the complexity of detail increasing as the book progresses. Functional anatomy is related to the movements of daily living and is supported by activities for experiencing and observing the way we perform everyday tasks. Later chapters consider the integration of sensory and motor processes for the planning and execution of movement.

This fourth edition has been extensively updated and revised. Highly illustrated and now in full colour throughout the book also includes:

? Case histories with self assessment exercises
? Summary boxes
? Key terms
? Practice notepads
