Abstract

The availability of contractual work for occupational therapists is increasing steadily. Because of time constraints, therapists often must select one contract over another. To help the therapist make informed decisions, this paper provides a step-by step process for developing a trend analysis to compare the productivity and profitability of contracts. A case example taken from the author’s own experience illustrates this process.
