Health and Wellness Promotion in the Older Adult: An occupation-based approach

Webinar • Geriatric

Presenter: Marissa Dastice, Megan Doyle
Date: March 15, 2023
Time: 7:30 pm CT

Both physical and occupational therapists have a role in addressing health and wellness promotion with older adults, with their respective scopes of practice complementing one another. This webinar will provide evidence-informed practice recommendations from the occupational therapy scope of practice as per the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Occupational Therapy Practice Framework 4th Edition regarding the importance of including an occupation-based approach in achieving health and wellness promotion for the older adult. Occupation-based approaches utilize real-world valued activities as both an intervention and an end goal to facilitate improved quality of life. This will allow for an increased understanding of how this unique approach may be integrated into a multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary rehabilitation setting for optimal patient outcomes and can be promoted by all members of the healthcare team.
