Occup Ther Health Care 2019 Feb 6:1-21. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

i Bassett Healthcare Network , Bassett Research Institute , Cooperstown , NY , USA.

Evidence suggests that older driver safety may be improved by good vehicle maintenance, in-vehicle advanced technologies, and proper vehicle adaptations. This study explored the prevalence of several measures of vehicle maintenance and damage among older drivers through inspection of their vehicles. We also investigated the prevalence of in-vehicle technologies and aftermarket adaptations. Read More

Authors:
Ryan R Bailey

Occup Ther Health Care 2019 Jan 16:1-13. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

a Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis , St. Louis , Missouri , USA.

Interventions are needed to increase physical activity throughout the day in adults with chronic stroke, but mechanisms of action for doing so have not been identified. In this descriptive, exploratory study of 36 ambulatory, community-dwelling adults with chronic stroke, participants completed questionnaires investigating self-efficacy, self-regulation, social support, and outcomes expectations for daily physical activity. In the absence of any intervention, participants consistently reported high self-efficacy and outcomes expectations but low use of self-regulation and social support strategies. Read More

A model for occupation-based palliative care.

Occup Ther Health Care 2019 Jan 7:1-16. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

b School of Rehabilitation Therapy , Queen's University , Kingston , Ontario , Canada.

This article presents a scoping review of 74 papers from the peer reviewed literature dealing with occupational therapy in palliative care. Five themes emerged regarding the parameters of occupational therapy in palliative care. The themes include: the importance of valued occupations even at the end of life, an exploration of how occupations change over the trajectory of a terminal illness, the balance between affirming life and preparing for death, valued occupations might be doing, being, becoming, or belonging occupations and the emphasis of a safe and supportive environment as an essential dimension for effective palliative care.

The Occupation-Based Intervention of Bathing: Cases in Home Health Care.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Jul 7;32(3):306-318. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

b DrOT, PhD, OTRL, CDP, FMiOTA - Associate Professor in the Occupational Therapy Program, Wayne State University , Detroit , MI , USA.

Although bathing skills can be an indicator of long term placement, documentation of occupational therapists doing bathing as an occupation-based intervention is limited. Five clients were referred to a hospital-based home health agency with various diagnoses and at different levels of functioning. Each client was assessed at admission and discharge using the Outcomes and Assessment Information Set and the occupational therapists used the Activities of daily living (ADL) of bathing as the intervention based on client centered expressed needs.

Analyzing the professional practice context using three lenses: An essential step for responding strategically.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Dec 31:1-17. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

a Université Laval Faculté de Médecine , Quebec City , Quebec , Canada.

In the face of increased external controls on their practice and increased accountability obligations, health professionals such as occupational therapists must be able to act strategically with other stakeholders to reach consensus about service quality and the accompanying level of professional autonomy. Such strategic action requires certain competencies, including that of analyzing the context in which one's practice take place. In this article, we argue that the following three approaches, or lenses, should be used in this analysis: (1) accountability, (2) ethics, and (3) professional-as-worker. Read More

Occupational Therapists' Self-Reported Research Utilization and Use of Online Evidence Sources.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Dec 31:1-15. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

a University of Florida , Gainesville , FL , USA.

Research utilization of occupational therapists may positively influence the quality and cost-effectiveness of service delivery; however, previous studies suggest that therapists' overall use of research in clinical practice is limited. This cross-sectional study used survey methodology to investigate the research utilization behaviors of occupational therapists and examine the differences in behaviors between those who had and had not used the Navigator. The Navigator online competence assessment platform supports research utilization through recommended readings and access to online databases with full-text articles. Read More

An Exploratory Survey of Physical Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy Practice Patterns.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Dec 31:1-9. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

a Occupational Therapy Department , Florida International University , Miami , Florida 33199 , USA.

A computer-assisted survey was developed and administered to 66 occupational therapists working in adult physical rehabilitation to explore how and to what extent occupational therapists evaluate and treat medication management impairments. Approximately 90% of the sample evaluate and treat medication management, but only about 25% addressed medication management on a consistent basis. This suggests that current medication management service provision levels may be insufficient to meet clients' needs. Read More

Existentialism in Occupational Therapy: Implications for Practice, Research, and Education.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Oct 24;32(4):393-411. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

b Program in Occupational Therapy , Washington University School of Medicine , St. Louis , MO , USA.

As the profession of occupational therapy enters a second century, its growth in an increasingly complex and globalized world requires an adaptive and diverse philosophical foundation. The existentialist school of thought offers a complementary focus, which enhances existing philosophical foundations of the profession and supports two major tenets: (1) humans as self-making beings always in the process of becoming and (2) emotions and feelings as foundations for being-in-the-world. This article explores these two themes both in the context of existentialism and occupational therapy, and then provides an examination of existentialist utility in occupational therapy practice, research, and education.

The Use of Occupational Adaptation in Research: A Scoping Review.

Occup Ther Health Care 2018 Oct 22;32(4):422-439. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

a Department of Rehabilitation, School of Health and Welfare, Aging Research Network - Jönköping (ARN-J) , Jönköping University , Jönköping , Sweden.

The aim of this scoping review was to identify and describe how occupational adaptation has been used in different research studies published from 1992 to 2015 and to identify possible gaps in study design. Four categories of studies were identified: those focused on understanding how occupational adaptation occurs in different life situations and different health conditions, those focused on the use of occupational adaptation as a guide or model in organizing the occupational therapy process, and those using occupational adaptation as a part of instrument development. Several gaps in research are evident including updating the theory development on occupational adaptation, types of maladaptation, studies conducted in less affluent countries, quantitative studies with robust designs, inclusion of men and younger persons as subjects, vulnerable groups, health promotion, and community settings.

The Pioneer Schools of Occupation: Can They Teach Us Anything Today? This study reviews the development of the pioneer schools of occupation and their curriculum or program design between 1906 and 1923. The purposes are to document the existence of the schools, to explore the issues in establishing the schools, and to compare and contrast concepts stated in early curriculum models with those in current models of practice. The dates were selected to examine ideas before the passage of the Minimum Standards for Courses of Training in Occupational Therapy by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) outlining a consensus course of study.

a Self-Employed , Houston , Texas , USA.

The creation of a new profession in the early 20th century, such as occupational therapy, required a commitment to certain ideas and a willingness to accept certain challenges. This study examines the commitment to the idea of therapeutic and health supporting occupation by the early leaders and proponents of the profession and the challenges they faced in gaining acceptance of occupational therapy as a profession capable of delivering a valued health care service to society. Six challenges are reviewed as they occurred in the history of the profession and as they continue to challenge the profession into the present era. Read More
