From hospital admittance to discharge to outpatient rehabilitation, this course addresses the wide spectrum of rehabilitation interventions and administrative and clinical issues specific to patients with spinal cord injuries.  Comprehensive coverage includes treatment costs, life expectancies, acute care, respiratory care, documentation, goal setting, clinical treatment, complications, and activities of daily living associated with spinal cord patients.

In addition to therapy interventions and family education components you’ll find information on incidence, etiology, diagnosis, and clinical features of spinal cord injury.  Thoroughly referenced, evidence-based content provides the best evidence for treatment, drawn from the most current research in the field.  Also included are “Clinical Note” boxes that offer helpful tips and advice for practical applications related to each discussion.  With more than 500 illustrations – clinical photos and line drawings – visually clarifying important concepts helping you to familiarize with each condition discussed.
