Abstract

OBJECTIVE. We examined the usefulness of collaboration between occupational therapists and care managers using the Daily Life Performance Transfer Sheet.

METHOD. We administered a questionnaire to obtain care managers’ subjective assessments of the usefulness of the Daily Life Performance Transfer Sheet in the care management of clients with stroke 1 mo after discharge.

RESULTS. Most care managers perceived the Daily Life Performance Transfer Sheet as useful. Its perceived usefulness was significantly correlated with all items related to subjective assessment of care management, such as the understanding of clients’ abilities, short-term care planning, long-term care planning, interprofessional collaboration, and sense of accomplishment.

CONCLUSION. The Daily Life Performance Transfer Sheet is a useful tool for care managers in the care management of clients with stroke.
