Product Description

From the Back Cover

Based on the belief that an understanding of psychosocial aspects of health care optimizes therapeutic outcomes, this resource emphasizes the importance of the human factor in clinical competence and professional excellence. Comprehensive in scope and depth, it addresses a variety of psychosocial topics involving caregivers affected by pathology, impairment, functional limitation, and/or disability. Reality-based and practical in approach, it addresses very real issues in today's health care, acknowledging time as well as other constraints, and describes recommended roles and intervention strategies for care providers. Intended for students and professionals of all health care professions, additional features include:

  • Clinical examples in each chapter that highlight key subject areas and real-world situations.
  • Suggested additional readings that offer further personal accounts, histories, and insights.
  • Depth and breadth of contemporary topics that cover the full range of essential topics including psychiatric disorders, self-destructive behaviors, and impact of culture on health and illness.
  • Implications for health care providers that describe recommended roles and intervention strategies.

A book that all healt care providers should read 30 July 2014
By Juliana Ospina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great and easy book to read, learn and discuss the topics with family, friends and colleagues. Definitely, topics that all health care providers should become more familiar with. The book helps you understand what our patients and their families/caregivers are going through which ultimately would enable us to provide better care.

A decent book to have on hand. Most of it is common sense and I purchased this for an online class. The class was easy and a bit of a joke, but if this is the main area of your field of interest then go for it. It arrived in a timely fashion and in good condition.

was useful for class requirements but I really didn't use it very often, and instead relied on class notes. don't bother buying it if you don't have to.
