Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This six-year qualitative study examines morning routines of persons with chronic disabilities. The focus of year six was on nighttime habits impacting morning routines. Semistructured interviews were conducted and analyzed using cross-case analysis and grounded theory. Results show night habits are used to manage pain, stiffness, or fatigue the next morning and to manage timeliness. It is critical for OTs to understand morning routines and how nighttime habits impact these routines.
