Resources for rehabilitation specialists tend to follow a straight line: injury—disability—limitation—intervention. The International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions breaks with this tradition, organized by type of intervention (based on recommendations in the International Classification of Functioning) rather than disability, medical condition, or level of impairment. This innovative, user-friendly system identifies candidates for particular interventions in terms of the range of syndromes and illnesses they are applicable to, encouraging critical thinking, problem solving, and best practice. The book’s wide spectrum of interventions coupled with its international perspective creates a unique source of evidence-based strategies for improving patients’ adaptation, functioning, relearning, recovery, and the prevention of ill health. The Handbook: Describes interventions in such areas as environmental accessibility, ergonomics, pain management, sensory functional training, electric prostheses, music therapy, psychoeducation, and cognitive teaching. Features interventions suited to all areas of daily life: self maintenance, home, work, and leisure. Clarifies the occupational therapist’s role in multidisciplinary care. Includes material on accident/illness prevention and health promotion strategies. Supplies reference lists of studies regarding the clinical efficacy of interventions. Demonstrates the use of a common technical language for the field. Occupational and physical therapists, rehabilitation nurses and technicians, physiatrists, and health psychologists will find the International Handbook of Occupational Therapy Interventions a source of practice-enhancing tools and ideas. Its clarity of presentation makes it highly useful to readers in related fields (such as insurance case workers and ergonomic architects and engineers) as well.

Occupational therapists are expected to maintain their knowledge of best practice by independently keeping up to date on the latest research. With this work, the authors have assembled the evidence for effectiveness of occupational therapy for adults and older adults. It brings together the latest published peer-reviewed literature, conceptual approaches, outcome measures, and intervention approaches to address the three main areas by: Identifying a finite set of interventions which occupational therapists deliver most often, and providing details of those intervention approaches; Identifying where the research evidence shows that occupational therapists can achieve specific positive effects as a result of those interventions; Identifying the outcome measures most commonly and reliably used by researchers in occupational therapy to demonstrate the effects of interventions. The authors have comprehensively reviewed all of the intervention effectiveness literature for occupational therapy provided for adults. The material reviewed crosses all diagnostic categories and areas of practice for adults and older adults. Analysis of over 500 research studies and systematic reviews form the basis for this book.
