Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The Let’s Get Organized–Swedish Part 1 pilot study shows feasibility for use in psychiatric and habilitation outpatient services. Participants took part in a 10-week manual-based group intervention for 1 ½ hours weekly. Each session has a separate theme, a common structure and goal (to implement use of a calendar), and cognitive strategies for managing time. This study uses OT standardized tools to measure results that were promising and need confirmation in further studies.
