Course Overview

Occupational therapy (OT) evaluation and treatment must involve a whole-person assessment of the individual's history, current abilities, and personal goals. Occupational therapists (OTs) play a critical role in the assessment of activities of daily living (ADLs) across all practice settings, especially in post-acute care. OTs use their keen observational skills and extensive knowledge of adaptations for ADLs to address deficits in ADL functioning. This course is designed to describe common ADL activities in the post-acute care setting and occupational therapists’ role in remediating and addressing any deficits in these performance areas. Clinical guidelines for client assessment using current, evidence-based measures will be included.
