Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

This study explored possible roles for occupational therapy in a team-based primary care clinic. Results suggest that cognitive and behavioral challenges interfere with treatment and that patients face occupational limitations that are not addressed. Occupational therapists have unique skills to complement the team and benefit patient outcomes.
