The course is divided into three core chapters that focus on a myriad of topics ranging from the identification of responsibilities within occupational therapy, to observing the relationship between physical and occupational therapists in care. Join occupational therapist Danielle Keyser as she highlights the foundation and philosophical basis of OT, and reminds occupational therapy practitioners of the importance of embracing effective utilization of standardized tests, as well as evidence-based treatment techniques. Keyser also highlights the tools of the therapy trade that inspire creativity for the OT clinician by providing concrete examples of how everyday, inexpensive items can be integrated into the therapy toolbox for increased patient function. The course includes a dialogue between Keyser and renowned physical therapist Dr. Carole Lewis demonstrating their unique roles and therapy perspectives on the profession, and how their individual disciplines approach the case study patients.
