Context is a fundamental part of the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, and working with clients in their own homes allows occupational therapy practitioners to see clients in their natural context. This practice setting envelops clients in their own social and environmental context, which both challenges and benefits practitioners.
Home Health Care: A Guide for Occupational Therapy Practice frames occupational therapy in the context of the home health practice setting and provides the knowledge that occupational therapy practitioners in home health need to practice and communicate the value of occupational therapy. This text and Self-Paced Clinical Course also provides resources for other stakeholders, such as home health agencies (HHAs), who want to know what to expect from occupational therapy practitioners in the home health setting.
The chapters and appendixes cover occupational therapy evaluation, conditions in home health, plans of care, intervention, sustainable outcomes, and community resources, and also details how to satisfy stakeholders in home health services and the various roles of Medicare.
This publication is also available as a Self-Paced Clinical Course (earn 2 AOTA CEUs/25 NBCOT® PDUs/20 contact hours).
After completing the text or completing the course, readers and learners will be able to
• Identify the inherent advantages in practicing occupational therapy in the context of the physical and social environment of the client’s own home.
• Differentiate the conditions of client populations receiving occupational therapy services in the home from the conditions of those treated in other practice settings.
• Identify all of the stakeholders in the efficient and effective practice of occupational therapy in the home.
• Differentiate the roles of Medicare as the major payer and regulator of home health services.
• Recognize how payer and regulatory requirements need to be integrated into daily occupational therapy home health practice.
• Identify the differences between regulatory requirements and HHA policies.
• Delineate how the occupational therapy home health evaluation based on the Framework differs from but can contribute to the accuracy of data reported using the OASIS.
• Identify the similarities between the quality indicators measured by an HHA and the domain items of the Framework.
