Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

OT older adult interventions employed in a skilled-nursing facility were linked to Level III ICF categories using a specific and precise linking process. This study revealed that the majority of the interventions employed were linked to the ICF category exercise tolerance functions. This study demonstrated how the ICF may be used in OT practice. The results of this study reflect the focus of OT practice in two skilled-nursing facilities.
