Occupational Therapists getting it right when planning visits with equipment and adaptations Reps

On the whole, the visits I plan with equipment and adaptations reps go OK. But over the years, I’ve had some visits go spectacularly wrong. On reflection, I have to blame my decision making process when organising these visits. Being the OT nerd I am, I’ve turned to our theory base to develop this tool for oraganising visits with reps. The goal of the tool is to gather the right information, at the right time, so that we orgnaise the right visit for both the person(s) a the rep and me the OT.

Hope you find it helpful.



I am an Occupational Therapist and my main passion is the using the built environment to support people's occupational performance (basically ensuring people are able to do the things they want, need and have to do in their everyday lives without being hindered by the built environment). Having completed an MSc in Accessibility and Inclusive Design I was given an opportunity to complete a PhD, which I did in July 2016. Currently I am based in the School of Health Sciences at University of Salford. My research interest is in the process used by occupational therapists to modify home environments.
