"The book begins with a comprehensive review of the current literature and the knowledge generated to date. Reasons for the field's limited impact are proposed, including its focus on individuals rather than groups and communities, its psychological view of occupation, and its narrow focus on socially approved occupations. Global realities such as poverty, anti-social behaviour and ageing populations are discussed and implications for action are considered. The second section of the books comprises a series of chapters that address the philosophical, theoretical and scientific bases that underpin and inform everyday decision making in occupational therapy practice. This is followed by a section on methodological and structural considerations. The concluding chapter offers a critical reflection on methods, strategies, values and relationships for the future, to achieve a relevant science that makes a difference to current occupational realities. Written by an internationally renowned team of contributors, this book offers a truly comprehensive critique of the field. "--Publisher.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is essential for all health and social care professionals. It is also beneficial for organisations. Evidence shows that when there is significant investment in CPD, individuals feel valued and their practice improves. In order to maximise the potential of your CPD, this practical handbook guides you through the five TRAMm stages, which are depicted as stations: Tell (T), Record (R), Activity (A), Monitor (M) and measure (m). The tried-and-tested TRAMm model reflects the five standards for CPD laid down by the Health and Care Professions Council; and your own learning needs provide the main focus, enabling you to develop a full CPD portfolio as you progress. At the end of each chapter, there are opportunities to reflect on your learning – and apply theory to practice through a series of tasks. Designed for all levels (from health and social care students to experienced practitioners), this book may also be useful for associated support workers and other healthcare professionals, including doctors, pharmacists, optometrists, nurses and midwives. In addition, some aspects will be relevant for professionals outside healthcare, such as teachers, surveyors and engineers. Above all, this book demonstrates that CPD is closely linked to professional and personal success and well-being, and we should all see it as an essential part of our working lives. Contents include: • Preface • What is continuing professional development (CPD) and why do we do it? • Engaging in CPD and developing your learning style • Introduction to the TRAMm model • How do you plan and disseminate your CPD? TRAMm Station T: TELL • How do you record your CPD plans and activities? TRAMm Station R: RECORD • What counts as CPD? TRAMm Station A: ACTIVITY • How do you keep track of your CPD?

I’m going to define the essence of this sprawling place as best I can. I’m going to start here, in this village, and radiate out like a ripple in a pond. I don’t want to go to the obvious places, either; I want to be like a bus driver on my first morning on the job, getting gloriously lost, turning up where I shouldn’t. I’m going to confirm or deny the clichés, holding them up to see where the light gets in. Yorkshire people are tight. Yorkshire people are arrogant. Yorkshire people eat a Yorkshire pudding before every meal. Yorkshire people solder a t’ before every word they use... If there were such a thing as a professional Yorkshireman, Ian McMillan would be it. He’s regularly consulted as a home-grown expert, and southerners comment archly on his ‘fruity Yorkshire brogue’. But he has been keeping a secret. His dad was from Lanarkshire, Scotland, making him, as he puts it, only ‘half tyke’. So Ian is worried; is he Yorkshire enough? To try to understand what this means Ian embarks on a journey around the county, starting in the village has lived in his entire life. With contributions from the Cudworth Probus Club, a kazoo playing train guard, Mad Geoff the barber and four Saddleworth council workers looking for a mattress, Ian tries to discover what lies at the heart of Britain’s most distinct county and its people, as well as finding out whether the Yorkshire Pudding is worthy of becoming a UNESCO Intangible Heritage Site, if Harrogate is really, really, in Yorkshire and, of course, who knocks up the knocker up?

Written specifically for occupational therapy students, newly qualified occupational therapists and educators and is a useful reference guide for academic tutors. The Occupational Therapy Handbook reflects modern day occupational therapy practice and education. The editors have created a current user-friendly text book specifically in relation to Practice Education, particularly in light of the developing role of occupational therapy in current practice. Many developments in practice education have re-focussed the value that the profession places on occupation, particularly in role emerging placements and expanding areas of practice. These developments are captured in this text. Other texts that have been produced have predominantly had a multi-professional focus and not addressed all the key occupational therapy issues in the depth required.There is always something to learn, irrespective of your level of expertise.

Activity Analysis is an essential skill to occupational therapy. Students and practitioners need not only an understanding of what activity analysis is and how to break down the steps of a task, but also understand how each aspect of an activity influences participation in occupations. Occupation-Based Activity Analysis is a definitive text that effectively progresses the reader toward understanding the differences between occupations and activities, and the interaction of all of the components of activities and occupations, such as performance skills, client factors, activity demands, and contexts. Occupation-Based Activity Analysis by Heather Thomas instructs students to analyze activities using the domain components as outlined in the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework: Domain and Process, 2nd Edition. This timely text guides the reader through understanding the process of activity analysis from the perspective of examining typical activity demands. Learning of key concepts is reinforced through case examples, worksheets, exercises, and sample analyses. Beginning with defining the domain of practice through the areas of occupation, students will learn to identify occupations and activities, while learning to understand the importance of analysis to their domain of practice. Students and practitioners will also discover how to analyze the demands inherent to the activity itself, and the context which surround the activity and the people engaged in it. The component steps to analyzing activities or occupations are uncovered in separate chapters, each aspect reinforces concepts that are foundational to occupational therapy practice. A Glance at What Is Covered: • Activity versus occupation versus tasks • Areas of occupation defined • Details of how social and space demands, as well as objects influence performance • Client factors and body functions and structures defined as they relate to performance in occupations • The influence of the client’s contexts • Performance patterns and how their influence on occupations • How to grade and adapt an activity Instructors in educational settings can visit www.efacultylounge.com for additional material to be used for teaching in the classroom.
