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.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to
- Identify the principles and theories grounding the client-centered and occupation-based approach to intervention.
- Identify techniques and strategies for creating a client-centered and occupation-based milieu within the hand rehabilitation setting.
- Identify the process for documenting the intervention plan and daily interventions when using an occupation-based approach in the hand rehabilitation setting.
- Recognize how the concepts of client-centered and occupation-based intervention are used in the hand rehabilitation setting.
