Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Pocket Companion is designed to meet the day-to-day needs of PM&R residents, practicing physiatrists, and physicians in other specialties seeing rehabilitation patients. Focused solely on clinical care delivery, this handy reference provides the tools necessary to navigate everything from PM&R team coordination to the tailoring of medical management to achieve functional goals. Divided into four sections, the book covers all rehabilitation topics and is packed with practical information useful in daily practice, including disease-specific order sets and tips for managing the wide range of issues that commonly occur during a patient’s rehabilitation. The first section introduces the field of rehabilitation medicine, the second reviews the scope of practice of allied health professionals on the rehabilitation team, the third section discusses rehabilitation topics and practice areas, and the fourth is an extensive Appendix of 24 assessment and rating scales, tables, and algorithms, essential for daily clinical use.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Pocket Companion is an indispensible resource that belongs in every white coat pocket.
This book is hands down the most useful book I’ve found as a pocket guide. It provides information about all the various disciplines that a physiatrist (PM&R doctor) will encounter in his daily practice. This includes the roles and information about physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and rehabilitation nurses. It also has chapters on the disciplines with PM&R including pain management, stroke rehabilitation, and wheelchair/orthotic prescribing. I am just starting my fourth year of med school and I am definitely glad I found this book. It gives a quick and thorough rundown of all major areas in physiatry and will definitely be useful in residency. Additionally there is an appendix in the back with the NIH stroke scale, EMG diagrams, and other useful charts and diagrams. It is the perfect size and is well put together. I highly recommend this book for physiatrists in training on the go.
