Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Following Dupuytren’s contracture, therapists rely on clinical judgment more often than other forms of evidence, likely due to insufficient evidence. Therapists use diverse assessments based on clients’ needs. Over one-third of therapists may focus on client factors and performance skills in place of occupation-based interventions. This early evidence supports the development and investigation of evaluation and intervention protocols for persons following surgical interventions.
