Freyr Patterson, Jennifer Fleming, Kathryn Marshall, Nadine Ninness
BACKGROUND/AIM: Professional practice education is a core and essential component of occupational therapy training. With increasing numbers of education programmes and more students requiring professional practice placements, development of innovative models of professional practice education has emerged, but these require investigation. The aim of this study was to investigate student experiences and perceptions of the Student-Led Groups Program model of professional practice education in an inpatient brain injury rehabilitation unit...

BACKGROUND: Understanding quality of life and participation is a key aspect of occupational therapy research. The use of smartphones to deliver experience-sampling surveys may provide an accessible way to monitor these outcomes. This study used smartphone-based experience sampling methods (ESM) to investigate factors influencing momentary quality of life (mQOL) of university students. METHODS: A convenience sample of students at an Australian university participated...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The Graded Repetitive Arm Supplementary Program (GRASP) has been designed to increase the frequency of upper limb therapy sessions occurring without the presence of a therapist. Its use has not been studied when implemented in acute care settings with patients presenting with a stroke within the first week of onset. To investigate patients' experiences of using the GRASP when provided within the first week in an acute stroke setting. METHODS: A concurrent nested mixed methods design was used...

Sally Bennett, Roger Sylvia, Cate Fitzgerald, Libby Gibson
BACKGROUND/AIM: Simulated learning experiences are increasingly being used in health-care education to enhance student engagement and provide experiences that reflect clinical practice; however, simulation has not been widely investigated in occupational therapy curricula. The aim of this paper was to: (i) describe the existing research about the use and evaluation of simulation over the last three decades in occupational therapy curricula and (ii) consider how simulation has been used to develop competence in students...

Janet Frith, Helen Warren-Forward, Isobel Hubbard, Carole James
BACKGROUND/AIM: In Australia, all stroke survivors should not drive for four weeks and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) survivors should not drive for two weeks. This study investigates the provision of return-to-driving education in the acute hospital setting and the use of this education by a cohort of Australian patients who have experienced a mild stroke or TIA and who are discharged directly home from their acute hospital admission. METHODS: A medical record audit was conducted of stroke patients discharged home from a regional hospital in Australia...

Monique West, Glenn Melvin, Francis McNamara, Michael Gordon
BACKGROUND/AIM: The introduction of sensory rooms within acute psychiatric settings provides a therapeutic space that promotes emotional self-regulation and reduces distress and disruptive behaviours. The current research investigated the clinical benefit of a sensory room within an adolescent psychiatric unit. It examined whether guided sensory room use can reduce distress for adolescents and identified characteristics of sensory room users. Seclusion rates 12 months pre- and post-sensory room introduction were compared...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The first evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines and Principles of Care for People with Dementia in Australia have been released. The Guidelines detail a number of important evidence-based recommendations for occupational therapists. The aim of this paper is (1) to provide an overview of Guideline development, and (2) to describe the evidence supporting a recommendation for occupational therapy. Common characteristics of effective occupational therapy programmes for people with dementia are described...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Few studies have examined graphomotor skills in children with prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). METHODS: Graphomotor skills were assessed in 108 predominantly Australian Aboriginal children aged 7.5-9.6 years in remote Western Australia using clinical observations (pencil grasp; writing pressure) and standardised assessment tools (the Evaluation Tool of Children's Handwriting; and the Miller Function and Participation Scales - The Draw-a-Kid Game)...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The role played by Australian occupational therapists with clients living with terminal illness has recently been highlighted in the Occupational Therapy Australia () position paper on palliative care. To date, little evidence exists about the work profile of these therapists, the type of clients seen, their practice settings and how long therapists are planning to remain in this clinical role. This paper presents results from a national survey of Australian occupational therapists working with people who are terminally ill...

AIM: The aim of this study was to develop and provide initial validation data for a self-awareness of on-road driving ability measure for individuals with brain injury. METHOD: Thirty-nine individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury completed an on-road driving assessment, the Self-Regulation Skills Interview (SRSI) and the newly developed Brain Injury Driving Self-Awareness Measure (BIDSAM). RESULTS: BIDSAM self, clinician and discrepancy scales demonstrated high levels of internal consistency (α = 0...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Participation in physical activity is an important health concern for children in most Western communities, but little is known about Asian children's participation. The purpose of this study was to extend the current knowledge on how much time preschool children in Taiwan spend on physical activity, to examine its relationship with gross motor performance and to provide information on the establishment of physical activity guidelines for preschool children in Taiwan. METHODS: Two hundred and sixty-four children between 36 and 71 months old were recruited from a university medical centre and from preschools in Taiwan...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Home visits by occupational therapists are a routine part of practice, but there remains little understanding about factors that are associated with the decision to complete a home visit. The aim of this study was to investigate the rate of pre-discharge home visits by occupational therapists for patients following hip fracture and explore factors associated with their occurrence. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study including 293 patients admitted to a metropolitan health service following hip fracture...
