Physical medicine and rehabilitation (
PM&R) is one of the broadest and most challenging specialties in medicine. Physiatrists see patients of all age groups with impairments of every organ system and must have a keen understanding of anatomy, biomechanics, ergonomics, exercise physiology, kinesiology, neurophysiology, pharmacology, and psychology. They not only prescribe medications and perform procedures, but also prescribe prosthetics, orthotics, splints, and complex medical equipment. They lead interdisciplinary teams that address the holistic bio-psycho-social and spiritual needs of people with disabling conditions. In PM&R, board certification has three components: The first component, Part I, is a written examination testing medical knowledge; the second component, Part II, is an oral examination that tests clinical practice skills. The third component, Part III, is maintenance of certification. The Accreditation Committee for Graduate Medical Education defined six core competencies for physicians: medical knowledge, clinical care, practice-based learning, communication, professionalism, and systems-based practice. Part I tests the first of these competencies, while Part II tests the remainder. This workbook is an additional tool, unique in its format. It walks the reader through cases in an interactive format. The cases are structured in a similar format to The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation ( ABPMR) Part II. The content mirrors the exam outline, which is available on the ABPMRwebsite. The exam consists of questions about case vignettes. Each vignette fits into one or more diagnostic categories, and each may focus on one or more evaluation or management skills. Each case tests five clinical skills: data acquisition, problem-solving, patient management, system-based practice, and interpersonal and communication skills. While the text is intended as a board review workbook to be used in preparation for the Part II exam, other audiences will find it helpful as well.
Policy and Program Planning for Older Adults and People With Disabilities, 2nd Edition:Practice Realities and Visions
This book attempts to build students’ understanding of policy development through a critical analysis and review of policy frameworks, and the policy implementation process. The book is organized into four parts comprising twenty-one chapters. Part one of this book lays out a background as to the current and future demographic trends of older adults and makes the case for the reader that there are a variety of philosophical, political, economic, and social factors that affect public policy development. The chapters help the reader to explore a range of perspectives that define, shape, and impact the development and implementation of public policy. It intends to prepare the reader to critically analyze public policies related to aging. Part two provides an overview to major federal policies and programs that impact older adults and people with disabilities. It examines some historical developments leading up to the actual development and implementation of the policies. Policies include social security, medicare, the Older Americans Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Community Mental Health Centers Act, and Freedom Initiative. The last part of the book outlines specific programmatic areas that flow from aging policies, and specific components that flow from federally mandated policies. Each chapter contains same basic outline: an overview of the programs, specific features and strengths of the programs, gaps and areas for development, and challenges for the future.
