Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The results of a national survey of OTAs and OTs who work in geriatric settings will be presented. The findings will be of interest to clinicians who are frustrated by constraints that interfere with their ability to deliver services to their clients. Evidence of a relationship between high moral distress and leaving a position will be of interest to managers. The study supports the need for educators to teach strategies for conflict resolution.
