Occupation in occupational therapy practice: Uncovering the complexities and opportunities for therapists in acute settings (February 5, 2019)

Occupational therapists’ unique contribution to healthcare is our profound understanding of occupation to enhance health and well-being. This webinar will present the latest perspectives from literature and research to strengthen the use of occupation in acute practice settings. Additionally, the complexities and barriers to occupation-centred practice will be discussed. Practical strategies and examples of how occupation-centred practice can be sustained will be presented. Strategies that can assist service transformation will be targeted for all experience levels from new graduates through to therapists in senior and management level positions.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Understand the need to implement and strengthen occupation-centred practice in acute settings.
  2. Recognize the differences and importance of occupational language and terminology.
  3. Apply strategies to strengthen or implement occupation-centred practice in acute settings.
