I presenting at the marvellous OT24Vx2015: Being an Agent of Change, which is a free on-line conference. Please come along if you’ve got time. Here is what I’ll be presenting on.
Building together: Occupational therapy and the construction industry
By modifying the home environment, occupational therapists utilise design and construction methods to improve or restore occupational performance. This presentation will explain how design and construction knowledge was used to develop a novel occupationfocused process protocol for home modifications.
Participants will be able to:
- Justify the role of occupational therapy in home modification practice
- Explain why occupation-focused practice is important when modifying environments
- Appraise the role of design and construction in the occupational therapy process
