One helpful resource for occupational therapy practitioners, both occupational therapists and occupational therapy practitioners is using evidence-informed research for practice. However, OTPs often don’t have the time, knowledge, or energy to research approaches for conditions. Furthermore, staying on top best-practices for multiple conditions can be even more time-consuming.
One of the benefits of becoming an OT Dude Club Member is access to these Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines:
- Chronic conditions
- Multiple sclerosis
- Traumatic brain injury
- Parkinson’s disease
These Practice Guidelines are organized by level of evidence, e.g, A, B, C, to help you easily decide whether to use an approach or intervention for practice. Overall, when deciding what to ultimately use, occupational therapy practitioners should use evidence-informed practice combined with collaboration with clients. More will be added in the future.
