Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Collaboration during provision of low-vision services is paramount to comprehensive service delivery. Despite rural practitioners having decreased access to other members of the rehabilitation team, professional collaboration occurred similarly among OTs working in rural, micropolitan, and urban settings. Methods of collaboration, including online technology, should be explored as a means of increasing interprofessional collaboration to foster improved client outcomes.
