Toileting: Identifying and Treating the Unspoken ADL

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 39 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 37 Minutes

Lindsey Vestal, an occupational therapist specializing in pelvic health, takes pride in making complex ideas more accessible. In this course, she clarifies why and how toileting is well within the scope of any occupational therapy practitioner, regardless of experience level. Participants will learn how to improve intake language for an environment where both the practitioner and the client feel more at ease discussing sensitive issues. This intentional intake style allows clearer identification of client-centered goals and ultimately expands a client's occupational performance in self-care, home and community mobility, social participation, and role management (AOTA, 2020). After this course, participants will be more self-assured when recommending behavioral modifications, toileting products, and integrating new habits into existing routines.

Constipation Relief the OT Way: Treating the Whole Person

Video Runtime: 46 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 39 Minutes

Constipation is a common condition experienced by clients of any age, and its negative impact is experienced on personal, familial, and systemic levels. Occupational therapy practitioners (OTPs) are poised to provide conservative measures, including but not limited to water intake, dietary choices, behavior modification, and habit stacking.

Both client and clinician can feel uneasy discussing this socially sensitive topic; however, attaining client-centered goals expands a client's occupational performance in self-care, home and community mobility, social participation, and role management. OTPs are experts in the biopsychosocial approach, and applying this to constipation relief can improve client occupational performance, independence, and self-confidence. An emphasis will be on conservative approaches to improved toileting frequency and experience.
