)-- Outcome measurement in speech-language pathology is a hot topic that is constantly evolving, and clinicians need a comprehensive reference they can consult for the latest policies, principles, and practices pertaining to outcome measurement in the healthcare arena.
Based on the pioneering work of Carol C. Frattali, “Outcomes in Speech-Language Pathology, Second Edition,” just published by Thieme, provides readers with a focused review of current policies, principles, and practices pertaining to outcome measurement in speech-language pathology with particular emphasis on healthcare. It is a unique text that covers outcomes in speech-language pathology practices within the context of contemporary issues across work settings that include clinical practice, applied clinical research, and graduate education.
"My goal in this new edition was to carry the baton of outcome measurement handed to us from Frattali in 1998 into the next generation of educators and practitioners in speech-language pathology. I hope that the information shared and the lessons taken from the expert contributors to this text will be applied to ensure a strong and accountable future for the profession.” -- Lee Ann C. Golper, PhD
Directors and managers of clinical speech-language pathology programs in healthcare settings as well as clinical staff and supervisors will find this book to be a valuable desk reference and graduate students will use it as a key resource in the course of their studies.
