Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Americans with disabilities encounter barriers to using electronics. This may preclude the ability to manage one’s health. Lack of provider intervention that addresses barriers to health management is an occupational injustice to people with disabilities. OT has a vital role in assessing technology use, assessing health literacy, creating interventions, and tracking health outcomes. This study examines electronic health literacy and technology use on an acute rehab unit.
