Following devastating earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand, Haiti, China, Indonesia and Pakistan, hurricanes in the Philippines and USA, floods in Bangladesh, the Balkans and Canada, famine and droughts in Africa and Australia, and ferocious wildfires in Europe, USA and Australia, to epidemics, conflicts and terrorism unleashing indiscriminate suffering across all continents...NO ONE IS IMMUNE...BUT SOME ARE MORE VULNERABLE THAN OTHERS.

Disaster and Development is a ground breaking book that crosses cultures and contexts to provide a foundation for critical reflection on the role of occupation in disaster and development.

Occupational Emergency Medicine

Michael Greenberg

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 288

With a large proportion of emergency admissions due to occupational health problems, the effect this can have on your practice cannot be ignored. Owing to the shortage of occupational physicians and limited worker access to health care, the diagnosis and treatment of occupational diseases rely increasingly on the emergency physician. Apart from extra paperwork, owing to the extra legal and administrative regulations, a lack of knowledge of occupational medicine can risk a missed diagnosis. This burden of work means occupational disorders impact the whole of the emergency department. Michael Greenberg addresses your questions and concerns about the management of these patients: * from triage to discharge, and beyond * for all work-place injuries or disorders, whether office-based, agricultural or industrial * and their employment regulations Occupational Emergency Medicine is an essential reference for emergency physicians and trainees, featuring comprehensive information on legal issues involving the physician, and advice on managing occupational health admissions.

Manuale di movimentazione del paziente per gli operatori di RSA e altre strutture

Samanta Cianfrone

editore: Maggioli Editore

pagine: 120

L'esigenza di assistere negli spostamenti le persone parzialmente o totalmente dipendenti è antica come la malattia. Più recente è la ricerca di migliori strategie per compiere tali spostamenti e il tentativo di organizzarle in modo sistematico. La tecnologia ha dato un ulteriore contributo con l'immissione sul mercato di numerosi ausili (dalle semplici tavole di scivolamento ai sofisticati sollevatori meccanici). Un impulso importante è poi venuto dalla legge 626/94, che ha disciplinato l'attività di movimentazione dei carichi, imponendo al datore di lavoro e al lavoratore il rispetto di una serie di misure volte a salvaguardare la salute degli operatori sottoposti a tale attività. La legge prevede anche l'obbligo di organizzare specifici corsi di formazione all'interno dei luoghi di lavoro. Sappiamo bene che un corso di formazione può essere un eccellente punto di partenza, ma che non è sempre sufficiente. Le conoscenze acquisite vanno declinate nella specifica realtà in cui l'operatore svolge il proprio lavoro. In quest'ottica acquisisce grande importanza questo manuale: uno strumento efficace perché completo, pratico, chiaro, di rapida e semplice consultazione. Un aiuto al nuovo operatore per apprendere l'arte della movimentazione e a quello più "navigato" per scoprire nuove modalità, più sicure e più confortevoli per sé e per il paziente.

Occupational Therapies without Borders

Towards an Ecology of Occupation-based Practices

Dikaios Sakellariou, Frank Kronenberg
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 432

This is a companion text to "Occupational Therapy without Borders - Volume 1: learning from the spirit of survivors!" In this landmark text writers from around the world discuss a plurality of occupation-based approaches that explicitly acknowledge the full potential of the art and science of occupational therapy. The profession is presented as a political possibilities-based practice, concerned with what matters most to people in real life contexts, generating practice-based evidence to complement evidence-based practice. As these writers demonstrate, occupational therapies are far more than, as some critical views have suggested, a monoculture of practice rooted in Western modernity. Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu captures the ethos of this book, which essentially calls for engagements in the service of a purpose that is larger than the advancement of our profession's interests: 'Your particular approach to advancing our wellbeing and health strikes me as both unique and easily taken for granted. Whilst you value and work with medical understandings, your main aim seems to go beyond these. You seem to enable people to appreciate more consciously how what we do to and with ourselves and others on a daily basis impacts on our individual and collective wellbeing. As occupational therapists you have a significant contribution to make [.] allowing people from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the wellbeing of others.'

A Problem-Based Approach to Assessment and Management

Christine Imms, Karen J. Dodd
e altri

editore: Mac Keith Press

pagine: 256

This book is a practical resource for physiotherapists and occupational therapists who support people with cerebral palsy, helping them to solve the problems with movement and other impairments that so often accompany cerebral palsy, so that they can be more active and better able to participate in roles such as study, work, recreation and relationships. The first chapters provide the background to the clinical reasoning approach that informs the whole text, as well as an overview of therapeutic interventions. The subsequent chapters present clinical situations that therapists will encounter in the course of their work with individuals with cerebral palsy across the lifespan. Each chapter describes a case in detail, including the reasoning behind assessment and treatment choices, interventions and outcomes. The themes emphasized throughout the book are the use of the clinical reasoning approach of the intervention process model, the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health as a framework to help therapists inform patient and family decision-making, family-centred approaches in developing and implementing therapeutic strategies, and multidisciplinary team work.

Trauma cranico e terapia occupazionale. Guida all'autonomia nella vita quotidiana

Donatella Saviola, Antonio De Tanti

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 272

Il libro nasce dall'idea di sistematizzare in modo organico riflessioni teoriche ed esperienze pratiche sull'apporto della terapia occupazionale applicata al contesto della riabilitazione di persone con esiti di grave trauma cranico. Sono descritti percorsi in cui i pazienti sono coinvolti in esperienze sempre più ecologiche che li portano a sperimentare in sicurezza prima in laboratori tematici con setting molto strutturati e poi fuori dalle mura dell'ospedale - attività di vita quotidiana anche complesse. Il fine ultimo del processo riabilitativo è infatti il raggiungimento, compatibilmente con i danni subiti, del maggior grado di benessere, libertà di scelta e autonomia del soggetto, anche nei casi più severi come lo stato vegetativo, tenendo sempre conto del contesto socio-familiare. Nel testo vengono illustrate esperienze concrete, supportate anche dalle nuove tecnologie, realizzate nel Centro Riabilitativo Cardinal Ferrari, in cui il terapista occupazionale è tra i protagonisti di un team riabilitativo allargato, che può coinvolgere l'arte-terapeuta, il regista, l'istruttore di scuola guida, l'educatore, il maestro sportivo. Ci sono inoltre contributi di esperti che estendono la riflessione ad aspetti di bioetica, al contesto normativo e giuridico di riferimento. Il quadro che emerge è quello di un percorso riabilitativo complesso ma possibile, non una "isola che non c'è", ma una realtà concretamente raggiungibile e misurabile.

Occupational Therapy and Physical Dysfunction

Enabling Occupation

Jo-Anne Supyk, Matthew Molineux
e altri

editore: Churchill Livingstone

pagine: 672

The sixth edition of this classic book remains a key text for occupational therapists, supporting their practice in working with people with physical impairments, stimulating reflection on the knowledge, skills and attitudes which inform practice, and encouraging the development of occupation-focused practice. Within this book, the editors have addressed the call by leaders within the profession to ensure that an occupational perspective shapes the skills and strategies used within occupational therapy practice. Rather than focusing on discrete diagnostic categories the book presents a range of strategies that, with the use of professional reasoning, can be transferred across practice settings. This edition heralds a new era in which an international editorial team has coordinated the great work of the retiring founding editors, Annie Turner, Marg Foster and Sybil Johnson. The new editors have radically updated the book, in response to the numerous internal and external influences on the profession, illustrating how an occupational perspective underpins occupational therapy practice. A global outlook is intrinsic to this edition of the book, as demonstrated by the large number of contributors recruited from across the world.

Kate M. Davidson, Maggie Nicol
e altri

editore: Butterworth-Heinemann Ltd

pagine: 194

This book presents the application of the model of cognitive behavioural intervention in the practice of physiotherapy and occupational therapy addressing a range of clinical problems with contributions from professionals who are specialists in their field.

editore: Cortina Raffaello

pagine: 544

In questo volume vengono approfondite le principali tematiche relative alla disabilità, con una visione aggiornata alle prospettive aperte dalla Carta di Madrid e dall'introduzione dell'International classification of functioning, disability and health. Con particolare attenzione verso una cultura imperniata sui temi dell'autonomia e dell'empowerment della persona con disabilità e sui concetti di design for all e di progettazione ad personam, vengono esaminati i principali ausili per ciascun ambito di intervento (l'ambiente domestico, la cura della persona, la mobilità, gli ausili tecnologici) e le relative modalità di training. Il volume - risultato della collaborazione di professionisti che operano in vari campi, da quello clinico riabilitativo a quello ingegneristico a quello architettonico - è rivolto, oltre che ai terapisti occupazionali, anche ai medici fisiatri, ai fisioterapisti, agli assistenti sociali, agli infermieri, alle persone con disabilità e ai loro caregiver, che possono trovare soluzioni adeguate per le proprie necessità.
