Course Description

Ideal for therapists working in a hand rehablitation setting who are interested in integrating an occupational based approach to practice, AOTA's newly updated Hand Rehabilitation course sets the stage for a client-centered and occupation-based approach to intervention that is easily incorporated into your daily routine. Topics include

  • Client-centered evaluation and the creation of the occupational profile
  • Rethinking interventions from an occupation-focused perspective, including preparatory techniques, activities and occupations
  • Strategies for long- and short-term goal setting.
  • Ideas for focusing on occupation during orthotic fabrication

Course discussion highlights the rationale for the use of the occupation-based approach and includes case examples to illustrate clinical application. In addition, the course describes how to use occupation-based intervention to enhance hand rehabilitation protocols without sacrificing productivity or detracting from the concurrent client factor focus.
