Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

Barriers to inclusion of occupational therapy in primary care are noted. Occupational therapists (OTs) and primary care physicians (PCPs) were surveyed to determine receptiveness of OTs and PCPs to occupational therapy in this setting when barriers were addressed. Results suggest that OTs and PCPs are receptive to occupational therapy in this setting if barriers are addressed.
