Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey OT referral data provides objective description of the patients referred to OT: 29% had a musculoskeletal condition and 42% had a history of injury. This data can be used when planning a primary-care OT practice and supports further outpatient OT utilization research beyond patients who are currently being referred to OT.
