Video Runtime: 72 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 31 Minutes

This introductory course delves into the pivotal role of occupational therapists (OTs) within interprofessional primary care teams. Participants will discover how OTs, with their unique training in physical and mental health, are ideally positioned to address a diverse array of patient needs in this setting. Through a blend of evidence-based practices and real-world case studies, participants will explore how the inclusion of OTs leads to improved patient outcomes and fosters recognition from physicians regarding the value of OT on the team. While a gap persists in the literature regarding the exclusive impact of occupational therapy outcomes in primary care, evidence supports the profound influence of behavioral choices and behavioral health on overall health. OTs, focusing on habits, roles, and routines, can effectively address these issues. This course will also provide insights into the effective documentation and billing for occupational therapy services, ensuring participants can navigate the complexities of reimbursement by third-party payers. Join us to discover how occupational therapists can provide client-centered care as generalists, focusing on physical and behavioral aspects of chronic condition management and well-being through interventions that address habits, roles, and routines.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the role of an OT on an interprofessional team in the primary care setting
