Occupational Therapists, an asset for patient self-management

Occupational Therapy MonthOccupational therapy (OT) is an extremely important but often underutilized service within home health. Most people think of bathing and personal care as the services OT provides – but there is so much more! OTs assist and teach patients and caregivers how to safely complete activities of daily living like bathing, eating, cooking, and cleaning, as well as many other self-management activities such as medication management and paying bills. Are your clinicians referring to OT for self-management beyond bathing?

During the next Underserved Population (UP) Networking webinar, experts Carol Siebert of The Home Remedy and Karen Vance of BKD Health Care Group will explain the relationship between daily activities and self-management of chronic conditions. They will also detail six strategies for using occupational therapy to improve clinical outcomes and provide advice for evaluating occupational therapy care plans.
