Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The focus of the Home for Life Design (HFLD) app-based home assessment is to determine a person’s ability to safely complete an occupation in context, and if and how the environment limits safety. An inter-rater reliability study with OT students (n=32) used online training v.5; ICC between individual raters and the author was high (.92; 95% CI). These findings contribute to the evidence that the HFLD home assessment is a reliable tool for OTs making home-safety recommendations.
