Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The AMPS is a valid and reliable measure of occupational performance. However, use of this measure can be met with barriers. In this study, therapists with AMPS certification participated in a multimodal knowledge translation curriculum. Participants completed a pre- and postsurvey. Study results support use of a multimodal curriculum to assist with overcoming barriers and increasing utilization of the AMPS. This framework could be applied to other assessments for increased clinical use.
