  • Ethical Tensions in Occupational Therapy Practice: Conflicts and Competing
           Allegiances

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Evelyne Durocher, Elizabeth Anne Kinsella
      Pages: 244 - 253
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Volume 88, Issue 3, Page 244-253, September 2021.
      Background.Ethical tensions inevitably arise in practice in light of diverse agendas embedded in practice contexts. Such tensions can contribute to moral distress and lead to professional burnout and attrition. Despite potentially serious implications, little work has been done to examine how various allegiances in occupational therapy practice can set up ethical tensions.Purpose.In this article, we present findings of an exploratory study examining conflicting allegiances in occupational therapy.Method.Using collective case study methodology, we examined ethical tensions reported by seven occupational therapists practicing in different settings in Southwestern Ontario.Findings.Ethical tensions were seen to arise in ways that highlighted competing allegiances to participants’ own values, clients, others in the context, colleagues, employers, and regulatory colleges.Implications.The findings open a discussion informing how practice settings can better facilitate practice directed at responding to client needs while also meeting the various demands imposed on occupational therapists.

  • Sensory Modulation and Participation in Daily Occupations in Stroke
           Survivors: Modulation sensorielle et participation aux occupations
           quotidiennes chez les survivants d'un AVC

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Avivit Fuks Sharony, Batya Engel-Yeger
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Stroke may alter sensory modulation and restrict participation in daily occupations. Although studies highlight the relationship between altered sensory modulation and reduced participation, this relationship in stroke survivors has not been studied enough. Purpose. To examine the prevalence of altered sensory modulation among stroke survivors; to compare sensory modulation and participation between stroke survivors and healthy controls; to estimate the relationship between sensory modulation and participation among stroke survivors. Method. Thirty stroke survivors and 30 healthy controls, aged 18–70, completed the MoCA, the Adolescent-Adult Sensory Profile and the Activity Card Sort. Findings. Altered sensory modulation was more prevalent among stroke survivors. Their participation was significantly restricted as compared to healthy controls. Lower tendency to seek sensory input predicted lower participation in social activities. Implications. Occupational therapists should screen for altered sensory modulation in stroke survivors and understand their impacts on participation, in order to improve intervention outcomes.

           Justice: L'occupation dans les environnements naturels ; équité en

      Authors: Karen Whalley Hammell
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Occupations undertaken in natural environments can positively impact physical and mental health, improve cognitive functioning, contribute spiritual and cultural benefits, and increase belonging, self-worth, and the meaningfulness of occupations. However, occupational opportunities in healthy natural spaces are inequitably distributed; and the deleterious effects of climate change and environmental degradation are borne disproportionately by socioeconomically disadvantaged people. Purposes. To highlight evidence that occupational engagement in nature is a determinant of health, foreground environmental injustices and identify some implications for occupational therapy. Key issues. Cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural research and critical environmental justice scholarship indicate that healthy nature is an inequitably distributed determinant of occupation, wellbeing, and human health. This merits critical attention from occupational therapy. Implications. By researching, identifying, and addressing occupational and health inequities arising from environmental degradation, climate change and inequitable access to health-promoting natural environments occupational therapists could contribute valuable, occupational perspectives to initiatives addressing human rights and environmental justice.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Occupational therapists play a major role in identifying the assistance needs of individuals living with a traumatic brain injury. However, to obtain an accurate assessment, verbal assistance should be provided only when necessary, according to the person's needs. Purpose. This study aimed to understand (1) how verbal assistance is provided during an evaluation of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living and (2) why it is provided in this manner. Method. Interviews were conducted with three expert occupational therapists using their own videotaped evaluation and a “think-aloud” method to explore their clinical reasoning when providing verbal assistance. Data were analyzed using thematic analysis. Findings. The process of providing verbal assistance was recognized as flexible and nonlinear, and influenced by various factors including the participants’ level of understanding of the client's abilities. Implications. This information will help therapists better understand how and when to provide verbal assistance when assessing their clients.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Children and youth with severe cerebral palsy (CP) have limited independent mobility, which affects opportunities for overall development. Purpose. To examine the effectiveness of Power Fun, a therapeutic powered mobility summer camp. Methods. A quasi-experimental, repeated-measure design was used, with participants acting as their own control. Twenty-four participants with severe CP (aged 7–20 years) attended Power Fun for three weeks, five days/week. Assessments of powered mobility skills and functional mobility goals were conducted three weeks before the camp (T1), at baseline (T2), postintervention (T3), and at three-week follow-up (T4). Findings. An analysis of variance results indicated significant improvements in powered mobility skills (F(1,22) = 56.61, p

      Background. Children from low-income backgrounds have a higher incidence of handwriting challenges due to the unique social and environmental stressors associated with poverty. Additionally, children from economically disadvantaged households are at risk for motor, cognitive, and social deficits, which further impact their handwriting performance. Purpose. The purpose of this paper is to propose a theoretical model that provides a holistic perspective for addressing the handwriting needs of children from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. Key Issues. The presented conceptual model is derived from the person–environment–occupation model for occupational performance and self-determination theory. These theories reciprocally complement and enhance each other, providing a foundation from which clinicians can guide evaluation and intervention. Implications. Through the use of the proposed model, evaluation and intervention focus on intrinsic motivation while considering the physical, social, and cultural impacts on a child's occupational performance. The provider connects with the child's basic psychological needs, thus improving handwriting outcomes and facilitating improved academic performance.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.The transition from student to new graduate occupational therapist is recognized as stressful. Current literature has not specifically drawn together the challenges new graduates face when learning to work with clients.Purpose.This review aimed to synthesize common challenges that new graduate occupational therapists face when working with clients.Methods.Searches of online scholarly databases located research articles. Content related to working with clients in practice was charted using the Matrix Method.Findings.From 21 articles, four categories of challenges were identified: “reasoning and decision-making,” “using knowledge and skills in practice with clients,” “the context of service provision,” and “managing caseload and priorities.” “Having self-doubt” was a theme that pervaded the data.Implications.New graduates often do not feel fully prepared for all aspects of occupational therapy practice. As they may not have access to substantial workplace support, exploring personal resources and professional support may assist this challenging transition.

      Background. Activity restriction is one of the most common symptoms reported by people living with bronchial asthma. Purpose. The study aimed to determine occupational competence and values in people living with bronchial asthma and compare with the occupational competence and activities of daily living (ADL) of healthy controls. Methods. Twenty individuals with asthma and 20 healthy controls were enrolled. Occupational competence and values were assessed using the Occupational Self-Assessment (OSA) questionnaire. Restriction of ADL was determined using the London Chest ADL Scale. Findings. Occupational competence was lower, and all London Chest ADL scores were significantly higher in asthma individuals compared to controls (p

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Client-centred practice has been part of occupational therapists’ identity for several decades. However, therapists have begun to question whether the term obstructs critical relational aspects of therapy.Purpose.The purpose of this article is to summarize critiques of the use of the term client-centred and propose an expanded descriptor and a fundamental shift in how occupational therapists engage with individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations.Key Issues.Three themes summarize critiques of how client-centred practice has been envisioned: (a) the language of client-centred, (b) insufficient appreciation of how the therapist affects the relationship, and (c) inadequate consideration of the relational context of occupation. We propose collaborative relationship-focused practice that has key relational elements of being contextually relevant, nuanced, and safe, and promotes rights-based self-determination.Conclusion.We argue that these essential relational elements, along with a focus on occupations, are required to promote occupational participation, equity, and justice.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.When acting effectively in their social change agent (SCA) role, occupational therapists can impact population health and occupational justice. However, empirical evidence of the influence of personal and environmental factors on their ability to act as SCAs is scarce.Purpose.To explore personal and environmental factors that influence the ability of occupational therapists to act as effective SCAs.Method.We conducted a descriptive interpretive qualitative study with 18 Québec occupational therapists recognized as successful SCAs. We collected data through semi-structured interviews with three focus groups and analyzed them thematically using a lexicon.Findings.We identified nine cross-cutting personal factors, including discovery, effective communication, and planning, that enable occupational therapists to act as successful SCAs. Six thematic groups of environmental factors facilitated or hindered their actions.Implications.To act effectively as SCAs, occupational therapists need to consider personal and environmental factors involved in their change project.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Physical activity (PA) is a therapeutic approach to address post-secondary student mental health, yet the effect of PA on occupational outcomes has been understudied among students.Purpose.This study (1) identified and described occupational performance issues (OPIs) among post-secondary students seeking mental health support and (2) assessed pre- and post-intervention differences in occupational performance and performance satisfaction.Method.Using a single group pre-test post-test pilot study design, participants (N = 20) completed a 6-week, 1-hour PA intervention. The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure was administered pre- and post-intervention.Findings.The most commonly reported OPIs included academics, PA, and sleep hygiene. There were significant improvements in participants’ occupational performance (mean change: 2.7, p < .001; dz = 2.28) and performance satisfaction (mean change: 3.7, p < .001; dz = 3.04).Implications.Results provide an initial demonstration of the benefits of PA for occupational outcomes within a post-secondary mental health context.

      Authors: Marie-Lyne Grenier

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background.Patient case formulations have become a standard feature in occupational therapy (OT) education. Despite their demonstrated benefits in optimizing student learning, patient case formulations may unintentionally convey oppressive disability discourses.Purpose.The purpose of this paper is to illustrate and invite critical reflection on the use of patient case formulations in reinforcing ableist discourses and assumptions in OT education and practice.Key Issues.Through the lens of critical disability theory and Crip theory, the author demonstrates how patient case formulations are often reflective of institutionalized ableism that functions to support oppressive disability discourses in the profession, contributing to harmful healthcare practices.Implications.The ongoing use of patient case formulations rooted in oppressive disability discourses perpetuates oppressive constructions of disabled people in OT education and practice. A radical shift towards pedagogical materials and practices that support identity-affirming disability discourses would be more aligned with the profession’s expressed values.
