The use of evidence-based guidance to enable reliable and accurate measurements of the home environment.

Br J Occup Ther 2018 Jan 14;81(1):32-41. Epub 2017 Nov 14.

Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy, Brunel University London, Uxbridge, UK.

Introduction: High quality guidance in home strategies is needed to enable older people to measure their home environment and become involved in the provision of assistive devices and to promote consistency among professionals. This study aims to investigate the reliability of such guidance and its ability to promote accuracy of results when measurements are taken by both older people and professionals.

Method: Twenty-five health professionals and 26 older people participated in a within-group design to test the accuracy of measurements taken (that is, person's popliteal height, baths, toilets, beds, stairs and chairs). Read More

Br J Occup Ther 2017 Nov 11;80(11):642-650. Epub 2017 Aug 11.

Senior Research Assistant, Dementia Research Centre, North East London NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Introduction: To develop occupational therapy's evidence base and improve its clinical outcomes, occupational therapists must increase their research involvement. Barriers to research consumption and leadership are well documented, but those relating to delivering research interventions, less so. Yet, interventions need to be researched within practice to demonstrate their clinical effectiveness. Read More

The impact of handwriting difficulties on compositional quality in children with developmental coordination disorder.

Br J Occup Ther 2016 Oct 16;79(10):591-597. Epub 2016 Jun 16.

Lecturer in Sport Science, Federation University, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: There is substantial evidence to support the relationship between transcription skills (handwriting and spelling) and compositional quality. For children with developmental coordination disorder, handwriting can be particularly challenging. While recent research has aimed to investigate their handwriting difficulties in more detail, the impact of transcription on their compositional quality has not previously been examined. Read More

Using Social Judgment Theory method to examine how experienced occupational therapy driver assessors use information to make fitness-to-drive recommendations.

Br J Occup Ther 2015 Feb;78(2):109-120

Research Fellow, Brunel University London, London, UK.

Introduction: As people with a range of disabilities strive to increase their community mobility, occupational therapy driver assessors are increasingly required to make complex recommendations regarding fitness-to-drive. However, very little is known about how therapists use information to make decisions. The aim of this study was to model how experienced occupational therapy driver assessors weight and combine information when making fitness-to-drive recommendations and establish their level of decision agreement.

Evaluating capacity to live independently and safely in the community: Performance Assessment of Self-care Skills.

Br J Occup Ther 2014 Feb;77(2):59-63

University of Pittsburgh - Occupational Therapy, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.

To determine clients' capacity for community living, occupational therapists must use measures that capture the person-task-environment transaction and compare clients' task performance to a performance standard. The Performance Assessment of Self-care Skills, a performance-based, criterion-referenced, observational tool, fulfills this purpose. In this practice analysis, using data from this tool from multiple clinical studies (N = 941), the authors describe tasks that clients from various diagnostic populations could and could not perform independently and safely.
