The purpose is to find out more about the client, what he or she wants and needs to do, and the obstacles to occupational engagement. The occupational profile and the analysis of occupational performance are two major parts
Based on results for evaluation, a plan is developed in keeping with the patient’s goals. Specific outcomes are identified, and approaches and methods for achieving these are identified.
The treatment plan is carried out. In many settings, the OTA is responsible for this aspect of the treatment process, involving the patient in activities to support particpation in occupation.
At regular intervals or continuously (depending on treatment setting), the OT practictitioners consider whether the intervention plan is working, what progress has been made, and what changes might be appropropriate. The plan is modified as needed. additional referrals or evalutions may be ordered.
OT practitioners work with the client, the family when appropriate, and the rest of the treatment team to make sure tthat the patient will be able to function optimally after leaving the treatment setting.
The patient is discharged from the program. Achievements in the program and plans are discussed. A final note is written by the OT with contributions from the OTA,
