Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This presentation introduces Occupational Connections, a structured, short-term, occupation-based in-patient mental-health intervention focused on promotion of participation in community occupations. Findings from an OC effectiveness study investigating the impact on community participation, the experience of the hospital setting as recovery-oriented, and changes in client descriptive parameters (cognition, symptom severity, and functional capacity) will be presented and discussed.
