Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Two OT students initiated services in a geriatric primary-care clinic, where they worked with an interprofessional team. To assess the team’s perceptions of OT services, three surveys were modified to include quantitative and qualitative questions. Results indicate that OT services were well-received and add to overall patient care and service delivery. This research supports OT in geriatric primary care.
