Rehabilitation Outcome Measures book cover

Rehabilitation Outcome Measures

Rehabilitation Outcome Measures is a comprehensive review and comparison of measurement instruments in rehabilitation. It includes a high-level section on professional practice in physiotherapy and an introduction to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) International Classification of Health. For those who wish to learn more about the relevance of reported measurement properties, the text focuses on how this knowledge can assist clinical decision-making. Additionally, the book reviews a range of measurements in neurological rehabilitation as well as mobility, fatigue, physical activity and patient satisfaction. Rehabilitation Outcome Measures is directed at students preparing for clinical practice, as well as researchers and practitioners seeking information about a range of measurement instruments.

Audience
Physiotherapy undergraduate students; research students/researchers in rehabilitation
