Adult and Older Adult Occupational Therapy I: Intervention and Outcomes aims to develop professional reasoning for using client-centered occupations as the primary modality for intervention to help clients achieve desired outcomes. The course emphasizes utilizing evidence to inform decision making and applying appropriate theories, models of practice, and frames of reference to guide intervention and discharge planning for clients experiencing orthopedic and general medical conditions. Integrating the pillars of lifestyle medicine serves as a means for promoting health and well-being through occupational participation. Examining different service delivery models provides an understanding of reimbursement systems, funding mechanisms, and documentation practices necessary to communicate the rationale for occupational therapy services in a wide variety of settings. The course also offers patient care skills to ensure safety of self and others.
