Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This single-group pre/double posttest study sought to enhance the use of occupation-centered practice by providing occupation-based kits and professional development. Five OTs were assessed using the Occupation-Centered Intervention Assessment during three phases of the study. A comparison revealed therapists became significantly less occupation-centered as the study progressed. A predominant factor was increasing acuity among the clients, which interfered with participation in therapy sessions.
