Text, illustrations and exercises are utilized in these six learning modules to instruct patients and the general public in exercise and rehabilitative techniques. The first module, "Exercise and Your Life" by Caroline Hughes, distinguishes between static and dynamic exercise and discusses the benefits of exercise. The second module, "Low-Back Exercise Program" by Robert E. Meade, presents five exercises to be used in a home care program for relieving lower back pain. The third module, "Back Massage or Oh, My Aching Back!!" by Frances A. Lupi, provides step-by-step instructions for giving a relaxing back massage. The fourth module, "Hand and Arm Care after Your Mastectomy" by Karen Bailey, explains the functions of the lymph nodes and why their removal limits the body's ability to fight infection in the involved arm and hand and then discusses the prevention of swelling and infection in that area. The fifth module, "Aerosol Therapy Treatment," was prepared by Richard Urband to teach respiratory patients how to assemble, load, and operate a compressor/nebulizer therapy unit. The sixth module, "Family Help for the Stroke Patient" by Marjorie A. Griffith, reviews the causes of stroke, its physical effects, and the hygienic, exercise, and psychological factors to be considered in home care for the stroke victim. Each module provides reinforcement exercises and a post-test. (JP)
