Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Agricultural injuries lead to loss of work time and resultant negative effects for physical and mental health. Limited published research exists regarding the efficacy of OT intervention to mitigate or prevent such injuries. A systematic review exploring such interventions for management or prevention of agriculture-related injuries reveals that musculoskeletal interventions along with environmental modifications and client education are supported by evidence.
