This book examines disability, in an accessible and interactive style, as it relates to healthcare policy and practice. It is aimed at physiotherapists and occupational therapists, both sutdents and practitioners, but will also be useful to all healthcare workers, including nurses, doctors and speech and language therapists.
Based on the social rather than the medical model of disability
Views disability in terms of environmental, structural and attitudinal barriers which deny disabled people full participation in society
Engages health professionals in critical reflection on the provision of services to disabled people
Case studies and activities throughout facilitate understanding of issues presented
