Summary "This book has been produced on behalf of the National Association of Neurological Occupational Therapists (UK) and is intended to guide newly-qualified occupational therapists (and those new to the field of stroke management) through the complexities of treating people following stroke. Written and edited by practising occupational therapists, the book acknowledges the many different techniques that may be used in stroke management and the scope of the occupational therapy role in the UK. It is hoped that this book will provide occupational therapists with the foundations for effective occupational therapy in stroke rehabilitation. Written in a user-friendly style, the book's chapters are presented in a form that enables the therapist to review the subject prior to assessment and treatment planning. Complex problems are grouped together to avoid confusion. It is hoped that this book will encourage therapists to use their skills in observation and problem solving, adapting and building on the techniques seen on clinical placement and taught in college."--BOOK JACKET
