What outcomes are important to patients and clinicians?

How is a specific instrument scored?
Has it undergone reliability testing?

Key concepts like reliability, validity, and responsiveness form the framework of the book, which features more than 300 commonly used outcomes instruments for the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, hip, knee, ankle, and calcaneus. Each instrument is numerically rated based on clinical relevance and ease-of-use. Research results summarized in table form eliminate the need for looking up original studies. And, the book is organized and color-coded by anatomic region to save you time in locating desired content.

Essential for orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, physical and occupational therapists, and others who manage musculoskeletal problems, this compact handbook is critical for deciding on an appropriate course of treatment based on validated outcomes.
