Advances in medicine and pharmacology, changes in general medical terminology, and a dynamic rehabilitation environment make Medical and PsychosocialAspects of Chronic Illness and Disability a much-needed addition to the rehabilitation literature. This fully revised and expanded Second Edition provides basic medical information on disability for the non-medical rehabilitation professional and the knowledge base for planning and coordinating psychological, social, and vocational services for persons with disabilities. Information on all body systems and disorders has been updated. In addition, you will find new chapters on adaptive devices and managed care, information on psychotropic medications, definitions of diagnostic procedures, and case studies.
