Clinicians' perspectives on 'Patient Volition and Action in Occupational Therapy' as an essential aid to practice.

 Review

 "Working in a team that uses the VdT MoCA exclusively, it has been important to have the best reference material available to support my everyday practice. This South African publication brings together the original papers by Vona du Toit as a brief chronological account of her work along with various studies and papers that give an account of her thinking and concepts behind the model. It details the clinical picture, motivation and action relating to each level and provides appropriate treatment aims and level specific approaches for treatment.  

This short publication has been an invaluable guide to the recent developments within our mental health inpatient service and the provision of effective therapy. Due to regular use of this book as a ‘dip in and out’ resource our assessment process has become more frequent and consistent in approach and treatments have been tailored to support very specific aims. As an everyday tool “Patient Volition and Action in Occupational Therapy” could be used in any setting and I would strongly recommend that it should be part of every occupational therapist’s reference collection."  For more reviews.....  READ MORE
