PURPOSE: This study aims to assess the efficacy of functional electrical stimulation therapy in improving voluntary reaching and grasping after severe hemiplegia. METHOD: A post hoc analysis of a previously completed randomized control trial ( clinicaltrials...

BACKGROUND: Recent literature in evidence-based practice indicates that evidence is defined differently from practice and research perspectives. However, few published works address therapists' perspectives of the nature and use of evidence in everyday practice. PURPOSE: This study describes the definition, types, and use of evidence from the perspective of six school-based occupational therapists. METHOD: Data were collected through focus groups and participant-submitted documentation and analyzed using qualitative and quantitative content analysis...

BACKGROUND: Reasons for referring school-age children to occupational therapy mainly relate to handwriting problems. However, there are no validated tools or reference values for assessing handwriting in francophone children in Canada. PURPOSE: This study aimed to adapt and validate the writing tasks described in an English Canadian handwriting assessment protocol and to develop reference values for handwriting speed for francophone children. METHOD: Three writing tasks from the Handwriting Assessment Protocol-2nd Edition (near-point and far-point copying and dictation) were adapted for Québec French children and administered to 141 Grade 1 ( n = 73) and Grade 2 ( n = 68) students...

BACKGROUND: Little empirical support exists for interrater reliability between evaluators from different backgrounds when assessing on-road outcomes of drivers. PURPOSE: We quantified interrater reliability of on-road outcomes between a certified driving school instructor (DI) and an occupational therapist and certified driver rehabilitation specialist (CDRS). METHOD: Both raters used the Global Rating Score (GRS) with two levels (pass, fail), the GRS with four levels (pass, pass with recommendations, fail remediable, fail), and the priority error rating score (PERS; most frequently occurring on-road errors in priority order) to assess 35 drivers (age, M = 48...

BACKGROUND: The idea of empowerment permeates the occupational therapy literature yet has received little critical reflection from occupational therapy's theorists. PURPOSE: This paper aims to explore the concept of empowerment and highlight a recent definition that resonates with occupational therapists' core values. KEY ISSUES: Empowerment is generally understood to be a process of bestowing power and giving ability to someone deficient in both...

BACKGROUND: Currently, Canada and the United States are the only two countries that mandate entry to the occupational therapy profession at the master's level. There was a recommendation considered by the American Occupational Therapy Association that by 2025 all education programs would move to the clinical doctorate level. In August 2015, the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education made the formal decision that for now, the entry-level qualification for occupational therapists in the United States will remain at both the master's and clinical doctorate levels...

BACKGROUND: Participation in occupations is a basic human right. Although people with schizophrenia commonly experience restrictions in participation, there is a paucity of research in this area. PURPOSE: This study aimed to compare the participation patterns of people with schizophrenia to people without mental illness (control group). METHOD: A total of 140 people of similar age and sex completed the Adults Subjective Assessment of Participation and provided demographic and health-related data...

Les partenariats en ergothérapie entre les praticiens et les chercheurs sont importants pour produire des connaissances pertinentes pour la pratique clinique et pour favoriser la pratique fondée sur les données probantes au sein de la profession. BUT: Dans ce discours Muriel Driver, l'auteure discute des raisons pour lesquelles nous devons favoriser la participation des praticiens à la recherche et elle examine les conditions essentielles à la réussite des partenariats de recherche en collaboration. QUESTIONS CLÉS: Les partenariats de collaboration peuvent réduire les obstacles empêchant les praticiens de participer à la recherche et permettre de veiller à ce que les initiatives de recherche soient plus pertinentes pour la pratique clinique...

BACKGROUND: Foundational to the occupational therapy profession is the belief that engagement in occupation is health promoting; however, this belief fails to account for occupational engagement that may be risky or illness producing. Consensus regarding the nature of the relationship between occupation and health has yet to be achieved. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to provide a comprehensive description of how the relationship between occupation and health and well-being is discussed within the occupational therapy and occupational science literature...

BACKGROUND: Evidence supports validity of the Personal Care Participation Assessment and Resource Tool (PC-PART), but clinical utility remains unverified. PURPOSE: This study aimed to investigate occupational therapists' perceptions about the PC-PART's clinical utility for inpatient rehabilitation. METHOD: Using mixed methods, occupational therapists who had used the PC-PART as part of a research study in an inpatient rehabilitation setting completed a questionnaire (n = 9) and participated in a focus group (n = 6) to explore their perspectives about its clinical utility...
