Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A computer-assisted survey was developed and administered to 66 occupational therapists working in adult physical rehabilitation to explore how and to what extent occupational therapists evaluate and treat medication management impairments. Approximately 90% of the sample evaluate and treat medication management, but only about 25% addressed medication management on a consistent basis. This suggests that current medication management service provision levels may be insufficient to meet clients’ needs. Research is warranted to understand and improve occupational therapists’ abilities to address medication management in practice.
