Reviews

"This well-organized and comprehensive text is both an easy to comprehend textbook and a layman's introduction to the dynamics of spinal cord injury and the concept of life-care planning...this text is complete and thorough in describing spinal cord injury; explaining its effects on the individual, family, and society..." -- Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, Loretta A. DeSoto, RN, CRRN, CCM, Winter 2002 "If your practice includes life care planning for spinal cord injuries, you need this book...The Appendices deserve special note. There are 16 topic areas packed full of life care planning related data. Subjects include demographics, costs associated with SCI, Functional Independence Measures (FIM) information, functional outcomes, aging, sexuality, leading complications, complications costs, health issues for women, mobility, employment, personal assistance guidelines, wheelchair sports and recreational resources, follow up care guidelines and ethical issues. Some are "mini chapters" and summarize the essence of information and data from a variety of well known SCI resources and research studies." --National Association of Rehabilitation Professionals in the Private Sector 2001 "One of the continually growing practice areas for rehabilitation professionals of various backgrounds is that of life care planning. The move for training and certifying life care planners (CLCP) as a profession unto itself continues to expand. The Spinal Cord Injury Desk Reference is the only text to date, which solely addresses the case management aspects of spinal cord injury (SCI) and life care planning. It addresses a multitude of issues related to spinal cord injury care as well as provides a plethora of valuable statistics and facts regarding the long-term needs, secondary complications, costs of SCI related treatments and basically a "how to" set of guidelines for developing life care plans. " --SCI Publications "Broad in scope, this source gives practitioners the tools and insights for assessing, planning, and addressing long-term care and management needs. It covers all areas central to the life-care planning process for people with SCI, and offers a wide range of guidelines that can be used as a base for addressing individual requirements. Written primarily for life care planning and case management practitioners, this source book is equally useful to primary and specialty care physicians, nurses, rehabilitation counselors, therapists, insurers/HMOs, attorneys, governmental agencies, disability organizations, and educators as well as people with SCI and their families." --Paraplegia News October 2001
