Occupational Therapy and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Paperback
by Diane Cox
Written for students and clinicians who are new to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), this work aims to demystify the illness and its management by offering a detailed exploration of the role of the occupational therapist in facilitating the CFS patient's recovery.
It provides an in-depth overview of information on aetiology, treatment and evidence-based management of CFS, with specific emphasis on occupational therapy intervention.
Recognizing that working with people with CFS involves all aspects of the occupational therapy process, the book demonstrates how many of the skills gained in occupational therapy training and in other areas of clinical practice can be transferred to the management of CFS.
Case vignettes and more in-depth studies are used throughout to illustrate the syndrome and its management and a full glossary of terms is also included.
