Course Description
Strategic Evidence-Based Interviewing in Occupational Therapy begins with an introduction to the three basic types of interviews most commonly applied in occupational therapy practice: structured interviews, semi-structured interviews, and general clinical interviewing. Through evidence-based examples of some of the most frequently used interview-based assessments within the occupational therapy literature, this CEonCD course will describe a set of norms and communication strategies that are likely to maximize success in gathering accurate, relevant, and detailed information. Applying principles from the Intentional Relationship Model (Taylor, 2008), a case example will be used to demonstrate how the selection of certain modes of communication at critical time points can enhance successful outcomes, particularly with difficult-to-interview clients.
