Abstract

Date Presented 4/21/2018

This study looked at whether occupational therapy students in Level II fieldwork influenced fieldwork educators’ use of evidence- and occupation-based practice. Findings suggest that students did affect fieldwork educators’ understanding and practice. This study expands our understanding of factors that explain the disconnect between occupational therapy education and how practitioners practice.
