Occupational therapy practitioners have a specific skill set and holistic approach, which puts us in a unique position to impact the quality of life of long-term care patients. This course will uncover strategies and resources to develop and implement a sustainable program to target meaningful
engagement among long term care patients. By partnering alongside facility staff and key stakeholders, OTs can lead the way to increase patient activation and participation with their own daily routines. Using self-efficacy assessments for social participation and roles can give OT practitioners a powerful metric to move forward with enabling others.
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least three stakeholders to support long-term care programming.
- List two evidence-based interventions for increasing patient engagement in a long-term setting.
- Identify and interpret at least one assessment for patient participation and engagement.
- Describe an appropriate scenario for referral for OT to contribute to patient’s care plan.
