Through qualitative synthesis of findings from 10 grounded-theory studies on perceptions of QOL of engaged patients with chronic conditions, the authors propose the theory of occupational autonomy, which defines QOL as one’s ability to participate in one’s valued, desired, or chosen occupations, providing powerful support for AOTA’s Vision 2025, which stresses OT’s role in maximizing “health, well-being, and QOL for all people, populations, and communities. ”
