Pediatric Therapy : An Interprofessional Framework for Practice

 Pediatrics  Comments Off on Pediatric Therapy : An Interprofessional Framework for Practice
Jul 112018
 

Research has become increasingly clear regarding the benefits of interprofessional collaborations in health care. Pediatric therapists have long recognized that coordinated care and advocacy for children and their families promote healthy growth, development, and participation in a wide range of environments. To this end, Pediatric Therapy: An Interprofessional Framework for Practice has been designed to engage students and clinicians in interprofessional learning experiences that cultivate collaborative practice and optimize the outcomes of those served.

Dr. Catherine Rush Thompson and her team of contributors represent years of experience across the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Rather than discussing each of these fields in isolation, however, the text explores professional roles and responsibilities, emphasizing essential skills needed for collaboration in a range of pediatric settings.

Key Interprofessional Concepts Covered:

• Foundations and philosophies that serve as a basis for pediatric care
• Assessing infants, children, youth, and adolescents in various situations
• Legal and ethical considerations impacting pediatric care
• Unique issues encountered in settings where pediatric therapies are offered
• Using current evidence and the clinical reasoning process for designing and modifying interventions

Each section of Pediatric Therapy offers case-based learning activities requiring interprofessional collaboration for clinical reasoning to optimize care. This approach encourages an appreciation of the importance of holistic care, as well as an understanding of the roles, frames of reference, and approaches favored by each discipline.

Pediatric therapists and others who work in healthcare and educational settings will appreciate Pediatric Therapy: An Interprofessional Framework for Practice as a guide for developing the interprofessional competencies needed to achieve desired outcomes for children and their families.

Review

In the wonderful world of paediatrics, this is a wonderful resource for students, junior doctors, and paediatric trainees alike – or anyone looking for a simple and reliable complement to learning from the literature and clinical encounter. The development and success of this has been no child’s play – one might even say, it’s a milestone of an achievement! (Beryl Lin, President University of New South Wales Medical Society)

The first edition of the ‘Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics’ is a delight. It is a new kind of paediatrics textbook for a new generation of students and professionals learning about child health and clinical paediatrics. Its quality will ensure its position alongside the very best resources available for supporting those trying to improve health care for children worldwide.

The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is a wonderful compilation of a systems-based approach to a challenging subject matter, with something of interest for everyone.

(Andrew Long, Vice President (Education), RCPCH, Consultant Paediatrician and Associate Medical Director, Great Ormond Street Hospital)

The layout and attention to detail in this unofficial guide is a tremendous asset for aspiring paediatricians as well as for those professionals interested in community child health. (Anthony Costello, Director, Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, World Health Organisation.)

If knowledge is to be pulled together in a textbook, then every effort should be made to make that knowledge as relevant and accessible to the reader as possible, and that is what the Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics achieves.

Training Programme Director)

It’s always difficult to grasp what’s important when you’re approaching a subject like paediatrics. The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is smart because it tries to combine speciality-specific knowledge with the experience of practitioners at all levels and – most importantly – the duty of care and advocacy for children. (David Osrin, Professor of Global Health, UCL Institute for Global Health, UK, Honorary Consultant Paediatrician, Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK)

In an age where it seems easier to “just google” information, this book makes it simple to find key information, enhanced by graphics and tables that promote meaningful learning. (Elizabeth Cotterell, Associate Professor of Paediatrics and Undergraduate Course Lead, University of New England)

Easy to read, practical and sensible (Colin Powell, Honorary Consultant Paediatrician Deputy Dean of Research, School of Medicine, Cardiff University)
