On this episode, I will talk with Sarah Stromsdorfer OT and blogger over at MyOTSpot.com about how we as occupational therapists can add more occupation based treatment ideas and documentation into our daily interventions.
What are Occupations in Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a health care profession that focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who have physical, mental, or developmental disabilities to help them perform their daily “occupations” – the things they want and need to do throughout the day. This can include anything from getting dressed and brushing their teeth, to driving and managing medications. They use activities and exercises to help people develop, recover, and maintain the skills needed for daily living and working in order to live as independently as possible.
OT Goal: OT practitioner will instruct patient in 1 occupation based activity in their work environment as measured by self reporting with 100% accuracy within 1 week.
