Course Overview

Therapists often find it challenging to use language from the AOTA practice framework to clearly articulate the skilled aspect of treatment. Some therapists have gotten too general with terminology and have lost the ability to clearly articulate on paper what was assessed and treated during therapy that required the skill of a therapist. In most cases, therapists are performing comprehensive, individualized treatment, but if documentation is reviewed from patient to patient, it is too redundant and does not show why another professional could not have performed the therapy session. Occupational therapists should use the language from the practice framework to communicate both the areas of concern for a patient and the ways that those areas were addressed in a skilled manor from an occupational therapist, and how only an occupational therapist could carry out the treatment. Failure to do so can result in denial of payment having financial ramifications for the organization in which the therapist works.
