Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

This scoping review maps the range of literature and emerging evidence articulating the role of occupational therapy (OT) in criminal justice systems. Practice guidelines for OT in these settings do not currently exist. This synthesis provides useful data for occupational therapists interested in growing the profession in these settings.
