Published Reviews

    "Throughout the book, there is well integrated discussion of the impact of disease on physiological function, physical

    and cognitive impairment, and limitations of function and social participation. Ethical and cultural considerations are incorporated into these accounts, giving the reader a sense of the kind of discussions that take place within rehabilitation teams, discussions that should be particularly helpful for trainees

    not only in this medical specialty but in other specialties in which practitioners encounter elderly people." By Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 2015, Feb 2015
