The QCS Pool Activity Level (PAL) Instrument is widely used as the framework for providing activity-based care for people with cognitive impairments, including dementia. The Instrument was recommended for daily living skills training and activity planning in the National Institute for Clinical Excellence Clinical Guidelines for Dementia (NICE 2006). It is an essential resource for any practitioner or carer wanting to provide fulfilling occupation for clients with cognitive impairments.

This fifth edition of The QCS Pool Activity Level (PAL) Instrument for Occupational Profiling retains the checklists and plans helpful in matching user's abilities with personal care and leisure activities and includes a new chapter co-written by Professor Lesley Collier on the revised 'PAL Engagement Measure' describing its use and validity.

Including access to a digital version of the PAL instrument, it is an essential resource for any practitioner or carer wanting to provide fulfilling and meaningful occupation for clients with cognitive impairments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The PAL instrument positively shaped my practice as an occupational therapist and continues to do so today. If you support people living with dementia and their caregivers this is the book for you - it combines expertise, with evidence and practical guidance for anyone with an interest in dementia care. - Dr Alison Warren, Academic Lead for Occupational Therapy, University of Plymouth

The QCS Pool Activity Level (PAL) Instrument is the foundation of activity and engagement. This essential resource is a 'must have' for Activity Providers. The Instrument gives us a framework and practical toolkit for person centred practice, and something we have needed for a very long time; the PAL Engagement Measure. I am excited to see the difference it will make to the practice of Activity Providers, and ultimately, the wellbeing of people living with dementia. - Hilary Woodhead, Executive Director of NAPA (The National Activity Providers Association)

This book is a must for anyone working with people with cognitive impairments, including dementia. Both the digital PAL instrument and updated PAL individual plans are clear and simple to follow, making the tool easy to pick up and use. - Kirsty Page, Occupational Therapist and Therapy Development Manager at Hamberley Care Homes and Inspire Neurocare
