  • Intention to Return to Work after Stroke Following Rehabilitation in
    • Authors: Patrick K Duong, Mary Y Egan, Matthew J Meyer, Tricia L Morrison
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Returning to work is important for many people following stroke. An estimate of the prevalence of people intending to return to work post-stroke would be helpful in planning services supporting work reintegration.Purpose.This study examined the prevalence of intention to return to work after discharge among stroke rehabilitation inpatients.Methods.We performed secondary analysis of National Rehabilitation Reporting System data for all stroke rehabilitation inpatients across Ontario (2012–2017). Intention to return to work was examined by gender, age, and level of disability.Findings.Among 25,691 stroke rehabilitation inpatients, 4,668 (18.2%) were employed pre-stroke and 2,039 (43.7%) of them intended to return to work. Intention to return to work was somewhat higher among younger and middle-aged stroke survivors and those with mild disability.Implications.Providers and planners should be aware that almost half of previously employed stroke-rehabilitation inpatients may be seeking services to assist with return to work.

  • Child Development Outcomes of DIR/Floortime TM-based Programs: A
           Systematic Review
    • Authors: Kobie Boshoff, Holly Bowen, Hazel Paton, Sally Cameron-Smith, Sean Graetz, Alexander Young, Katelyn Lane
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Occupational therapy is often part of the multi-disciplinary approach within the Developmental, Individual-differences, Relationship-based (DIR) FloortimeTM Model. The model addresses the emotional development of children, which is considered to be critical for the other child developmental areas.Purpose.This review serves to inform practitioner decision-making about the use of this model, as no systematic reviews exist on child development outcomes.Methods.The systematic search included Medline, Embase, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Scopus, and Cochrane. For critical appraisal, the McMaster Critical Review was utilized.Findings.Nine studies were identified with varying quality levels. Outcomes were mostly reported for increased socio-emotional development.Implications.The evidence base for this model is emerging from a published research perspective. It is recommended that the use of this model be supported by sound clinical reasoning processes, intervention fidelity, use of valid outcome measures, and regular monitoring. Higher quality research is urgently needed to progress the research base for this intervention.

  • Doing Occupational Justice: A Central Dimension of Everyday Occupational
           Therapy Practice
    • Authors: Antoine L Bailliard, Aaron R Dallman, Amanda Carroll, Ben D Lee, Susan Szendrey
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) and the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) state that occupational justice is part of the domain of occupational therapy and that occupational justice is “an aspect of contexts and environments and an outcome of intervention” (AOTA, 2014, p. S9).Key Issues.Despite the increasing focus on justice in the occupational therapy and the occupational science literature, many practitioners in traditional settings do not see its relevance to their everyday practice (Galvin, Wilding, & Whiteford, 2011) or have difficulty envisioning how to enact a justice-informed practice.Purpose.This paper demonstrates how occupational justice is germane to all settings of occupational therapy, and how it can be enacted at micro, meso, and macro levels of occupational therapy practice.Implications.We argue that occupational therapy is a justice-oriented profession at its core and will discuss how occupational justice can be enacted at all levels of practice.

  • Interventions Addressing Vision, Visual-perceptual Impairments Following
           Acquired Brain Injury: A Cross-sectional Survey
    • Authors: Paul Y Yoo, Katryne Scott, Filip Myszak, Stephanie Mamann, Amelie Labelle, Melanie Holmes, Andreanne Guindon, Andre E Bussieres
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.The existing literature on the effectiveness of interventions targeting vision, visual-perceptual impairments following acquired brain injury (ABI) is scarce and unlinked to occupational performance.Purpose.To explore current occupational therapy practice in vision-rehabilitation among adults with ABI in Canada, and to determine the evidence-practice gaps.Methods.An online survey was made available through the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) website, and disseminated to seven public healthcare institutions in Quebec. The survey collected respondent demographic information, and the types and frequency of treatments delivered. Descriptive statistics were conducted to determine interventions’ frequency. Participant comments were collected and grouped into recurring themes.Findings.Over half (55%) of respondents regularly use evidence-based interventions when addressing visual acuity (VA) and visual field (VF) deficits, but only very few (3%) use it when dealing with oculomotor function and visual stress impairments.Implications.Results gave a glimpse of interventions used and suggested the need for further research in vision rehabilitation.

  • Quality of life: A universal or a disability specific concept'
    • Authors: Asnat Bar-Haim Erez, Eynat Gal
      First page: 4
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Quality of life (QoL) is an important outcome of occupational therapy practice. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts the individual throughout their lifespan and may substantially affect QoL. Measuring QoL of people with ASD presents a challenge and a debate whether to use general versus disability-specific adapted measures.Purpose.This paper aims to (a) revisit the construct of QoL and discuss specific dilemmas pertaining to its measurement, and (b) discuss implications to the assessment of QoL in individuals with ASD while highlighting the potential contribution of occupational therapy to the development of measures.Key Issues.We suggest adding the domain of accessibility into QoL assessments, including, physical, sensory, social, and cognitive aspects, and to use disability-specific QoL measures.Implications.The paper presents a call for occupational therapists to be involved in developing specific ASD disability-oriented measures that consider the unique characteristics of the disorder and environmental supports.

      Background.As front-line service providers who often work in systems regulated by governmental bodies, occupational therapists can be conceptualized as “street-level bureaucrats” (Lipsky, 1980/2010) who effect and are affected by policy.Purpose.Drawing on understandings from a study of long-term unemployment, this article proposes that occupational therapists, as street-level bureaucrats, respond to inter-related policies and systems in ways that can perpetuate, resist, or transform opportunities for doing and being.Key Issues.By highlighting practitioners’ everyday negotiation of governmental, organizational, and professional power relations, the notion of street-level bureaucracy illuminates the political nature of practice as well as the possibilities and boundaries that policy can place on ideal forms and outcomes of practice.Implications.Framing occupational therapists as street-level bureaucrats reinforces practitioners’ situatedness as political actors. Mobilizing this framing can enhance awareness of occupational therapists’ exercise of discretion, which can be investigated as a basis for occupation-focused and emancipatory forms of practice.

  • Autism spectrum disorder: How can occupational therapists support
    • Authors: Marie Grandisson, Émilie Rajotte, Julie Godin, Myriam Chrétien-Vincent, Élise Milot, Chantal Desmarais
      First page: 30
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) face multiple occupational challenges in their school, and school staff need additional support to increase their participation.Purpose.The aim of this study is to identify how Response to Intervention (RTI) could be used by occupational therapists to support school personnel who work with children with ASD.Method.In a descriptive qualitative study, three discussion groups were undertaken with occupational therapists and school staff members in Quebec, Canada, to identify the main concerns regarding the participation of children with ASD in school activities as well as the actions to consider when attempting to increase school-related abilities.Findings.School staff members are primarily concerned with frequent outbursts and limited autonomy, along with low motivation and anxiety in children with ASD in diverse school activities and contexts. The actions identified provide guidelines for school and occupational therapist selection, the process to follow, collaborative practices, and support required.Implications.A practice model is presented for occupational therapists who seek to develop school capacity to support the participation of children with ASD.

  • Addressing clients’ sexual health in occupational therapy practice
    • Authors: Kelli Young, Abrielle Dodington, Catherine Smith, Carol S. Heck
      First page: 52
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Sexuality is an important dimension of one’s health and well-being. Studies show that occupational therapists regard clients’ sexual health as a legitimate domain of practice but do not adequately address it in their clinical work.Purpose.This study aims to describe occupational therapists’ perspectives regarding clients’ sexual health.Method.This exploratory study surveyed Canadian occupational therapists using an online questionnaire that collected information on beliefs, knowledge, comfort, barriers, and facilitators with regard to addressing sexuality. Descriptive analysis was conducted on questionnaire data, and content analysis was used to organize respondents’ comments.Findings.While most respondents believed that addressing sexuality was within their scope, few actually did so in practice. Participants reported comfort with sexuality but identified lack of knowledge as a barrier to addressing clients’ sexual health.Implications.This study provided a greater understanding of factors that require consideration for occupational therapists to effectively meet clients’ sexual health needs.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Research about occupational therapy practice in the community with people who have been imprisoned remains limited and may be considered an emerging area of practice.Purpose.This paper provides a critical, first-person account about emerging occupational therapy practice with men transitioning to the community post-imprisonment. The practice context is described and reflected on from the lens of a new graduate.Methods.Autoethnography draws meaning from reciprocal interactions between an individual and a culture. Data was collected by the primary author through reflective journal entries and process notes pertaining to a Photovoice project. Iterative application of established evaluative criteria served as a framework in an analytical writing process.Findings.Autethnography promoted self-reflection and professional development while Photovoice provided an evidence-based framework in an emerging setting.Implications.Current occupational therapy theories and models have limited applicability to inform practice with marginalized populations potentially benefitting from participatory research (e.g., Photovoice) and autoethnography.

  • “I’m not alone”: women’s experiences of recovery oriented
           occupational therapy groups following depression
    • Authors: Hannah Woolley, Esther Levy, Samantha Spector, Naomie Geneau, Aileen Castro, Suzanne Rouleau, Laurence Roy
      First page: 73
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Occupational therapy groups have been carried out as interventions in mental health settings across a variety of populations. Limited research explores the lived experience of individuals with depression following participation in recovery oriented occupational therapy groups.Purpose.To better understand how recovery oriented occupational therapy groups shape participants’ personal experience of daily life, including recovery.Method.Five individuals who had previously completed at least one recovery oriented occupational therapy group each participated in two in-depth semi-structured interviews. Analyses of the transcripts were completed using interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA).Findings.Participants’ experiences of the recovery oriented occupational therapy groups ranged from positive to negative, with variable impacts on their lived experiences. Two major themes emerged: (a) participants’ perception of “normal” and (b) navigation of meaningful participation.Implications.Increased understanding of what aspects of recovery oriented occupational therapy groups are meaningful to individuals with depression can help support their personal recovery process.
