  • Volume 67 Issue 3 - Street-level decision making and practising with
           de-colonial intent: Practice is political action

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Silcock, EMary
      Occupational therapy contributes to the way healthcare and societal networks of power operate. In this critical analysis of practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, legal, economic and material networks of power have been problematised through geneaological examination of occupational therapy practice. The everyday decisionmaking of occupational therapists was significantly shaped by the economic models of healthcare delivery and the medico-legal status of being a regulated health professional. The material nature of occupational therapy was able to contest the dominance of these networks. Developing a critical consciousness of underlying normative worldviews and power relations within social structures is necessary to support societal de-colonial healing.

      Abstract: Hitchcock, Brigid; Hocking, Clare; Jones, Margaret
      This interpretive description study explored the perceptions and concerns of Aotearoa New Zealand mothers raising children with Developmental Coordination Disorder. Nine participants were purposively recruited through the New Zealand Dyspraxia Support Group. Thematic analysis of data from semi-structured phone interviews revealed mothers' awareness of delayed motor skills evident in children's daily activities. This increasingly impacted the child's academic achievement as well as their social and emotional well-being. Mothers used strategies to support participation, however, limited knowledge of Developmental Coordination Disorder amongst health and education professionals meant advocating for their child's needs to be understood and addressed. The findings are in keeping with international studies.

      Abstract: Harvey, Karen; Ockerse, Tammy; Fadyl, Joanna
      Maintaining or returning to work has been identified as having a predominantly positive impact on people experiencing neurological conditions. This review of qualitative research literature was conducted to identify and synthesise key themes around facilitators and barriers to work maintenance and return to work for people with non-injury, adult-acquired, neurological conditions. The research suggested that vocational support for work maintenance and return to work for this population should address condition-specific needs that include navigating changes in functioning. The findings offer occupational therapists who provide vocational support services to this population an evidence-base.

  • Volume 67 Issue 3 - Horse riding: Its influences on sensory processing and
           relevance to occupational therapy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Roux, Casey
      The following literature review aims to introduce and describe the current evidence and research addressing changes in sensory processing and integration through the occupation of horse-riding. Therapeutic horse-riding has been reported, through qualitative and quantitative evidence to benefit the rider in a variety of ways. However, the specific benefits to sensory processing and integration have yet to be explored consistently using robust quantitative research. The evidence reviewed fell into three broad categories. Literature related to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, literature pertaining to areas of occupational therapy involvement within this area of practice, and the theoretical reasoning for the influence horse-riding has on sensory processing and integration.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ghulmi, Lima; Hudgins, Ellen; Biggins, Kristin
      Bariatric surgery is increasingly used to manage severe obesity, which is becoming more prevalent globally. Most funding sources mandate pre-operative lifestyle interventions to optimize weight management success in the long term. Occupational therapists can help clients seeking bariatric surgery to adopt a healthier lifestyle, improve quality of life, and increase participation in desired occupation. This review aims to highlight the distinct value of occupational therapy in lifestyle interventions and identify current evidence available to support interventions that occupational therapists can use with individual who are morbidly obese to facilitate long-term weight management pre-operatively.

      Abstract: Bishop, Amanda; Brott, Tamzin
      This article reports a small-scale, quality improvement project undertaken to trial the use of an environmental questionnaire and digital photographs as tools to replace home visits by occupational therapists when planning a patient's discharge from hospital. In total, 95 environmental questionnaires were completed and as a result, 14 home visits were not required. The project showed savings of both time and money over 16 weeks. Occupational therapists found the benefits of using the questionnaire included improved patient and family/whanau involvement in discharge planning, timeliness of therapeutic intervention and increased clinical time with patients on the wards.

      Abstract: Chester, Marie; Hocking, Clare; Smythe, Liz
      There is much published within occupational therapy and rehabilitation literature about the use and non-use of equipment, with recent research addressing consumers' perspectives of using equipment. As part of a larger study, this literature review used a hermeneutic phenomenological approach, which is an interpretive methodology that seeks to reveal that which is taken for granted, hidden or understood in a shallow way. This article summarises our interpretation of providing, receiving and using equipment from a hermeneutic phenomenological perspective.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Hocking, Clare
      The occupational disruption caused by the public health response to Covid-19 has changed our sense of ourselves as human beings, the sense of belonging we derive from shared occupations, and impacted what we will become, as individuals and as a nation. This invited commentary considers whether Wilcock's ideas of doing, being, belonging and becoming can be applied to groups, communities, and populations. It concludes that as a profession, occupational therapists can both demonstrate their relevance to the well-being of all New Zealanders at this time and support positive shifts in the society we will become.

  • Volume 67 Issue 2 - What Should I Say': Supporting Mental Health
           Consumers to Navigate Disclosure of Sensitive Information

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Pritchard, Elizabeth; Normile, Katie; Khlentzos, David; Muro, Joseph; Mynard, Lorrae
      Disclosing a mental health condition can assist community integration yet may be challenging for mental health consumers due to stigma, isolation, and discrimination. Consumers with a forensic history face greater challenges. Clinicians who work with consumers of mental health services don't always provide comprehensive disclosure support. Discussing the benefits and risks of disclosure can inform consumer decision-making while evidence-based interventions can guide disclosure conversations between clinicians and consumers. This paper, which explores evidence-based tools that can help to structure these conversations, also argues that occupational therapists have a responsibility to support consumers with navigating disclosure of sensitive information.

  • Volume 67 Issue 2 - Navigating the Tensions Between Bio-Medical and Social
           Approaches to Mental Health Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mills, Darren; Reed, Kirk
      This viewpoint article critiques tensions between the medical and social approaches to occupational therapy practice in mental health settings. Problem identification is contextualised to the recovery approach as it emerged through the service user movement in the 1980s and in its contemporary profile as co-opted into Aotearoa New Zealand guidelines to practice. Inadvertently, occupational therapy in mental health settings, through greater alignment with bio-medicine, risks marginalising those persons we aim to support. Our view is that increased awareness of social determinants of health and advocacy to address inequities are two strategies an occupational therapist can draw on to reduce marginalisation.

      Abstract: Boland, Pauline; Jones, Bernadette; Stanley, James; Graham, Fiona; Perry, Meredith; Levack, William
      Purpose: To explore equipment use by New Zealand Maori post-stroke.

      Procedures: Transcripts of interviews with four Maori participants and focus groups with 30 allied health professionals involved in equipment provision, drawn from a larger mixed methods study, were analysed using Te Whare Tapa Wha as an interpretive lens.

      Results: Te Tahi Tinana (physical), Te Hinengaro (psychological), Te Wairua (spiritual) and Te Whanau (family-related) health matters were all affected by, and influenced use of, equipment.

      Conclusion: The findings suggest Te Whare Tapa Wha is a culturally appropriate lens that occupational therapists can use to explore issues arising during equipment provision for Maori people.

  • Volume 67 Issue 1 - Shifting from stress to S.A.N.I.T.Y. in your
           leadership

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Pritchard, Elizabeth K; Burns, Christine
      Stress is a primal physiological response to danger eventuating in a fight, flee or freeze response (Lazarus, 1984). This is a natural survival mechanism, however if we continually experience repeated stressful situations, this can endanger our physiological and psychological systems (Ganesh et al., 2018; Lazarus, 1984). In the workplace we may interpret events as stressful, even though our life is not in imminent danger. When we interpret a situation or conversation as life threatening, we stimulate the body's stress response to release additional chemicals (Lipton, 2011). If we continually interpret events as stressful, this can lead to high levels of sustained or chronic stress and culminate in mental and physical ill-health, relationship breakdown, and poor job performance (Diener, 2009; Seligman, 2012). Chronic stress can also impede decision-making abilities, decrease focus, and decline output and achievements (Achor, 2018).

  • Volume 67 Issue 1 - When the river runs dry: Leadership, decolonisation
           and healing in occupational therapy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Gibson, Chontel
      This is a decolonising story about my people, (de)colonisation and occupational therapy. I am a Kamilaroi woman, who speaks from my heart and therefore, the heart of my family and community. A fundamental component of the Kamilaroi Nation is the Barwon River. This perennial river forms a part of the larger Murray-Darling basin, in the continent called Australia. The Barwon River's water level is at an unprecedented low. Drought is one contributing factor but more significant are the domineering and biased river management principles. These management principles reflect the legacy of colonisation, including Western infrastructures, like legislation, health and education. Western infrastructures inform, and in many instances, dictate the occupations of societies, communities and individuals. Indigenous peoples, across the globe, not only resist oppressive Western ideologies, but continue to maintain, develop and/or restore their culture via cultural occupations. Decolonising practices are one of many approaches that can support non-Indigenous people's understandings of occupations and occupational therapy. Decolonising practices include honouring indigenous peoples' voices, recognising the ongoing legacy of colonisation, and taking affirmative actions to remove imbalanced social relations and reverse social inequities. Celebrating success is just as important as remaining cognisant of how previous actions can easily come undone and launching the next set of actions. Decolonising practices provide a platform to participate in difficult conversations, to do the hard work and to process the resulting discomfort. These conversations, work and discomfort are important for healing ourselves, our profession and our societies. Like the Barwon River, healing will take a long time. Right now, the occupational therapy profession needs to make conscious decisions about its collective leadership. This involves critically reflecting on the leadership it has built with Indigenous people and/or will build with Indigenous people. This leadership should stand on the shoulders of Indigenous ancestors and be sturdy enough to shoulder future generations.

      Abstract: Pattison, Marilyn
      It is indeed a great honour to be invited to the Occupational Therapy New Zealand Whakaora Ngangahau Aotearoa 2019 Conference - "Leaders: Stand, Be Seen and Shine." John Maxwell (n.d.) tells us that "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way." Many of you have heard me speak in the past about entrepreneurship and the essence of my interpretation of entrepreneurship which is "a vision of empowerment for occupational therapists." As occupational therapists we need to develop the capacity and power to construct our own destiny. For some this might not be a comfortable journey and yet our whole careers are focussed on enabling and assisting people to meet their maximum potential so how can we effectively work with others if we have undercapitalised our own potential' Occupational therapists need to be prepared to be the leaders of progress at an individual, group and society level.

      Abstract: McDougall, Crystal; Mudge, Suzie; Smith, Greta
      The purpose of this study was to locate a standardised outcome measure that would determine the impact of an assistance dog on the key support person of a disabled person. We used a three-phase process to identify and explore potential outcome measures including an in-depth literature search directed by a steering group of major stakeholders. The Caregiver Quality of Life Index was deemed most suitable for use. The collaborative approach between industry and an academic institution characterised by a steering group to guide the selection of an outcome measure may provide a useful framework for other organisations seeking a robust but practical process.

      Abstract: Taylor, S; Fowler, B; Watters, S; Van Asselt, D; Edwards, S; Pickering, Y; Sidhu, R; Elliott, C; Naylor, O; Kerwin, P; Wojnar-Horton, S
      This paper reports the process and evaluation of conducting a quality improvement activity framed in an evidencebased practice context. The quality improvement activity focused on the selection of occupational therapy assessments with strong psychometric properties for a paediatric tertiary health care facility. An online opinion survey determined perceived facilitators and barriers of the process. Participants were seven occupational therapists, and two occupational therapy managers. Participants indicated a lack of designated time and perceived lack of research skills as barriers. However, the majority identified managerial leadership, collaborative appraisal and consensus, and the discipline specific research coordinator as key quality improvement facilitators.

  • Volume 67 Issue 1 - Occupational and environmental factors considered by
           family members prior to placing a relative in residential aged care

      Abstract: Andrews, Alexa; Everts, Claire
      This qualitative descriptive study explored the occupational factors considered by family decision makers when placing an older person in a residential aged care facility. Semi-structured interviews were used to explore family member's perspectives. The interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim and analysed thematically. Occupational considerations during the decision-making process included: the continuation of familiar occupations, an atmosphere of 'activity' within the facility, and physical and social factors which influenced the older person's ability to engage with both residents and the environment of the facility. The study outcomes revealed that occupational factors are being considered from a range of perspectives.
