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.

Ärzte, Pflegekräfte und Psychotherapeuten erheben in Europa bislang im Rahmen ihrer Diagnostik in aller Regel keine spirituelle Anamnese und gehen in der Behandlung nur selten auf die spirituellen Bedürfnisse ihrer Patienten ein. Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe betrachten Religiosität und Spiritualität entweder nicht als ihren Zuständigkeitsbereich oder sind unsicher im Umgang damit. Dieses Buch gibt Grundlagen zum Thema und bietet allen Berufsgruppen innerhalb des therapeutischen Teams konkrete Hilfestellungen zum Umgang mit den spirituellen Bedürfnissen ihrer Patienten. Auch problematische Aspekte werden beleuchtet. Gesundheitsrelevante Informationen zu verschiedenen Religionen und ein Muster-Curriculum runden das Werk ab.

The skills required by children’s nurses are many and varied, and are undertaken in a variety of settings. This book provides a clinical manual of common practices. Each practice is research-based and presented in a common format which covers: Objectives, Rationale, Factors to note, Guidelines, Positioning, Equipment, Method, Special observations and possible complications, and References and further reading. The guidelines have been written specifically for children’s nursing by contributors from well-known children’s units. They are not simply adaptations from adult practices and therefore recognise the unique differences between adult and children’s nursing. The introductory section covers common concepts and infection control. There are also appendices on the use of play as a distraction, and on complementary therapies. The common format of each practice makes the book easy to use and refer to in a clinical setting. Each practice is based on the latest research to ensure it is evidence-based and up to date Introductory chapters cover issues common to all practices to make the book easier to use. The appendix on play reinforces its common usage as a distraction technique A chapter on complementary therapies explains these as they are becoming more widespread All practices have been reviewed by regional centres to avoid parochialism Content reorganised to reflect the Essential Skills Clusters from the NMC New chapter on communicating with children All chapters updated to reflect the current evidence base
