Gain the knowledge and skills you need to treat clients/patients with physical disabilities! Pedretti's Occupational Therapy: Practice Skills for Physical Dysfunction, 9th Edition uses a case-based approach threaded through each chapter to provide a solid foundation in evaluation, intervention, and clinical reasoning. The text continues to support the entry-level occupational therapist and the experienced occupational therapist focused on expanding skills and knowledge. With the OT practice framework as a guide, you will focus on the core concepts and central goals of client care. And by studying threaded case studies, you will learn to apply theory to clinical practice. Written by a team of expert OT educators and professionals led by Heidi McHugh Pendleton and Winifred Schultz-Krohn, this edition includes an eBook free with each new print purchase, featuring a fully searchable version of the entire text.
