Book Description

This practical volume, in a casebook approach, was developed in response to the complex issues that today’s manager faces. As therapists assume managerial responsibilities, there is need to share experiences and lessons learned. In this volume, a common format is used to present each case, including chronology of events, alternatives considered, risks involved, and outcomes. Several chapters include valuable resource materials as well. Key concerns are addressed, such as justifying more therapist staff, evaluating staff performance, collecting and analyzing cost data to establish fees, weighing ethical and liability concerns, and teaching students about their future responsibilities. The Occupational Therapy Manager’s Survival Handbook provides useful material for any therapist who wishes to examine and strengthen his or her role as a manager.
