Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This study evaluated the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effects of PEM+, a web-based care-planning application that was designed with and for caregivers to help OTs enact family-centered and participation-focused care with children and families. Results indicate that PEM+ has potential as an innovative option for improving caregiver confidence when creating participation-focused care plans in OT.
