AOTA is pleased to offer new and useful continuing education on the subject of postacute care to advance your practice in these settings. The course reviews the characteristics of occupation-based practice with a focus on postacute care practice settings for older adults. Practical strategies to promote the practitioner’s ability to integrate occupation throughout the occupational therapy process are presented in an interactive format to maximize clinical application, and real-life scenarios illustrate the occupation-based approach for facilitating productive aging.
The purpose of this course is to facilitate the provision of occupation-based interventions with clients in postacute care practice settings and to support the Centennial Vision goal for the profession of advancing productive aging in older adults. It is through this educational opportunity that occupational therapy practitioners can enhance the lives of their clients and allow them to live life to its fullest!
