  • The Perceived Role of Occupational Therapists in Climate Change

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jiayi Du, Alexander Bird, Giovanna Boniface, Jeffrey Boniface, W. Ben Mortenson
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction. In 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) predicted that climate change would cause thousands of additional deaths per year from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, and heat stress alone between the years of 2030 and 2050. With such health consequences and environmental changes, climate change is impacting human occupations globally. However, there is a gap in the literature regarding the occupational therapists’ role in climate change, particularly in the Canadian context. Objectives. Our research aimed to explore what is the perceived role of occupational therapists in climate change and climate action from the perspective of Canadian occupational therapists and international experts. Methods. This qualitative study used interpretive description methodology. We recruited 12 occupational therapists, including 4 research experts in the field. We conducted semi-structured interviews with each participant. Data were analyzed thematically. Results. This study uncovered three themes that focused on the complex interconnections between climate challenges and climate actions that occupational therapists are wrestling with personally, clinically, and professionally. Specifically, this study emphasized the importance of supporting individual occupational therapists with their personal challenges, integrating climate actions into clinical practices, and incorporating climate change and climate justice into occupational therapy curricula and professional advocacy. Conclusions. The environment, including the planet's ecosystem, is a fundamental component in many models of occupational therapy practice. This research provides a rich understanding in the themes of occupational therapists’ perceptions of climate change and climate actions, particularly within a Canadian context.

      Authors: Zeal Kadakia, Ana Lopez, Maheen Shahid, Ashley Theoret, Ronessa Dass, Shaminder Dhillon, Jasdeep Dhir, Tara Packham
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background: In Canada, internationally educated physiotherapists (IEPTs) and occupational therapists (IEOTs) may work as occupational/physical therapy assistants (OTAs/PTAs) while pursuing Canadian licensure. This experience presents personal and professional opportunities and challenges. Purpose: We explored a) the barriers and facilitators experienced by IEPTs and IEOTs working as OTAs/PTAs while pursuing licensure in Canada and b) how might their professional identity changes during this period. Methods: In this cross-sectional qualitative study, we sampled IEPTs and IEOTs working as assistants using online focus groups. Reflexive thematic analysis of data was used to generate themes. Findings: Fourteen IEPTs or IEOTs participated reporting barriers including financial impacts while working as an OTA/PTA, discrimination, and challenges completing licensing exams. Facilitators while working as OTA/PTAs included social support, acculturation with Canadian systems, and career opportunities. Changes to professional identity encompassed accepting a new identity, reclaiming their old identity, or having a strong sense of identity within a healthcare profession. Participants advocated for bridging programs and modifications for examination processes for IEPTs and IEOTs to improve their experiences while pursuing licensure in Canada. Conclusion: Increased advocacy is needed to address the current experiences of IEPTs and IEOTs working as OTA/PTAs after migration.

  • From Hospital to Home: Validating a Cognitive-Functional Evaluation of
           Elders (COFEE-HD)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Yael Zilbershlag
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Increase in hospitalizations of older adults emphasizes the need for efficient hospital discharge planning to enable optimal reentry upon returning home. Yet few assessments offer an extensive picture of the older adult's functional-cognitive state. A comprehensive assessment for discharge planning together with a written summary can be beneficial to the older adult and family. Purpose. This quantitative study compared a modified version of a previously validated tool COFEE (cognitive OT functional evaluation of elders), for use in the hospital, HD (hospital discharge) with standard hospitals assessments. Methods. Of the 77 participants recruited in hospital, home assessments were conducted 4 months later on 64 participants. Findings. The COFEE-HD scores (physical functioning, personal and environmental safety and meta cognitive functioning) were significantly correlated with standard hospital measures and with the home assessment. Implications. The COFEE-HD was found to have a high level of validity in a hospital setting, and the resulting evaluation can provide important insights into function, safety and cognitive function for post-discharge behaviors.

  • Practicing During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Experiences of Canadian
           Hospital-Based Occupational Therapists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Samantha A. Oostlander, Katrine Sauvé-Schenk, Diana Bissett
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted hospital operations worldwide, including services delivered by occupational therapists (OTs). Purpose. This study aimed to understand the experiences of OTs at one Canadian, tertiary care hospital during the 2021–2022 period of the pandemic. Method. We used a qualitative descriptive approach to describe the experiences of OTs during the pandemic. Findings. While there were similarities in the 10 participating OTs’ experiences, salient differences were largely linked to the method of service delivery. Inpatient OTs benefitted from the support of colleagues and developed coping strategies in response to high levels of workplace stress and anxiety and a perceived lack of support from many levels of society. Clinically, they spent more time on discharge planning with fewer resources. OTs providing virtual/hybrid services experienced unique challenges related to adapting their practice to a virtual platform, including challenges assessing patients. They described benefits associated with virtual/hybrid service delivery and brought up concerns around equity of service provision. Conclusion. OTs in this hospital setting faced challenges in providing patient care and supporting their own wellness during the pandemic. Future research could explore the role of leadership in supporting occupational therapy practice during public health emergencies.

  • Pediatric Performance-Based Outcome Measures for Upper Extremity Function:
           A Scoping Review and Linking to the International Classification of
           Functioning, Disability, and Health

      Authors: Caroline Elfassy, Clarice Ribeiro Soares Araújo, Tessah Dunn, Sarah Cachecho, Rose Elekanachi, Johanne Higgins, Laurie Snider, Noemi Dahan-Oliel
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Performance-based outcome measures (PBOMs) are objective measures that assess physical capacity or performance in specific tasks or movements. Purpose. 1) to identify which PBOMs are most frequently reported to evaluate upper extremity (UE) function in pediatric rehabilitation 2) to determine the link between constructs of the ICF and meaningful concepts extracted from each identified PBOM. Methods. Pediatric UE PBOMs were searched in four databases. The selection of outcome measures included an initial title and abstract screening, followed by full-text review of the articles to be included based on identified selection criteria. Two reviewers were appointed to link the meaningful concepts identified in the outcome measures independently and a third reviewer was consulted in case of ambiguity to make a final decision. Findings. After the initial screening, 1786 full-text articles were reviewed, 1191 met the inclusion criteria, in which 77 outcome measures were identified and 32 were included in the linking process. From the included 32 outcome measures, 538 items were extracted and linked to the ICF. The most commonly cited measures included Assisting Hand Assessment, Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test, Melbourne Assessment of Unilateral Upper Limb. The Activity and Participation domain represented 364 codes followed by the Body Functions domain domain which represented 174 codes. Implications. A majority of the outcome measures identified were linked with the Mobility, Fine Hand Use of the ICF. Therefore, when selecting a PBOM, careful considerations need to be made regarding which concept of health is to be assessed.

      Authors: Carrie Anne Marshall, Corinna Easton, Elham Javadizadeh, Julia Holmes, Brooke Phillips, Roxanne Isard
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Meaningful activity participation has been identified as a key outcome of services designed to support individuals during and following homelessness. Little is known about the effectiveness of interventions for promoting this outcome. Purpose. To identify the range and effectiveness of interventions on promoting meaningful activity participation among persons with experiences of homelessness. Method. We conducted a systematic review using the Joanna Briggs Institute methodology following PRISMA guidelines including a critical appraisal and narrative synthesis. Findings. Of 12,343 titles and abstracts screened, we included 12 studies. The authors of the included studies primarily used standardized measures of meaningful activity engagement. Critical appraisal scores ranged from 50.0 to 77.8. The most common interventions evaluated in the included studies were psychosocial interventions (n = 6; 50.0%), followed by case management and housing support interventions (n = 4; 33.3%) and Housing First (n = 2; 16.7%). While several interventions demonstrated effectiveness in promoting meaningful activity participation including psychosocial and case management interventions, Housing First, Critical Time Intervention, and a peer support intervention were found to be ineffective for promoting engagement in meaningful activity. Conclusion. Few intervention studies have been conducted that demonstrate effectiveness for promoting participation in meaningful activity for individuals during and following homelessness. Occupational therapy researchers and practitioners can build on existing evidence by developing and evaluating novel approaches by co-designing interventions in collaboration with persons with experiences of homelessness and service providers.

  • An Occupational Perspective on Psychedelic Therapy: A Scoping Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gabriella Ann Hogan, Karen Elaine Wagner, Erin Tichenor, Tim Barlott
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Interest in the use of psychedelics for mental health therapy is burgeoning. Qualitative research methods are increasingly used to understand patient's experiences; however, there is a lack of literature that explores psychedelic use from an occupational perspective. Purpose. To conduct a scoping review of qualitative literature on the experiences of psychedelic use for the purpose of mental health therapy, through an occupational lens. Key Issues. Wilcock’s occupational perspective of health was employed to analyze the use of psychedelics in mental health from an occupational perspective. Despite heterogeneous therapy contexts and substances used, patients reported comparable benefits regarding occupational engagement, such as increased mindfulness and autonomy in doing, a renewed sense of being, greater motivation to grow and become, and an improved sense of connection and belonging. Implications. This review demonstrates how psychedelic use in the context of mental health support can be experienced as a meaningful occupation and may contribute to overall health. In turn, this review highlights the utility of an occupational perspective for “non-sanctioned” or stigmatized occupations like psychedelic use, as well as the need for more research on psychedelic use from an occupational perspective. Using an occupational perspective of health can help to de-stigmatize psychedelic use as a meaningful occupation, rather than a deviant one, and shed light on how psychedelics may also positively impact one's participation in everyday life and overall health.

      Authors: Elham Javadizadeh, Abram Oudshoorn, Lori Letts, Skye Barbic, Chelsea Shanoff, Carrie Anne Marshall
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Persons who experience mental illness also face stigma and discrimination that frequently lead to a loss of ability to exercise autonomy and agency in their lives. Purpose. The range and breadth of literature exploring participatory research with persons living with mental illness are unknown in occupational therapy and occupation science. We initiated this study to fill this gap in the existing occupational therapy and occupational science literature. Method. Using the method of Arksey and O’Malley, we have conducted a scoping review to identify the range and breadth of literature. A qualitative content analysis was performed. Findings. A total of 34 articles were included in the narrative synthesis. The content analysis led to three related themes from the included studies: (1) coming together; (2) unique potential of participatory research; and (3) challenges in conducting participatory research. Conclusions. This review highlights that participatory research is well suited to research conducted with persons living with mental illness to support meaningful engagement and minimize stigma throughout the research process. This review can guide future participatory research and practice in occupational therapy and occupational science with persons living with mental illness.

  • Research Knowledge Translation in Sensory Integration-Based Therapy:
           Exploring Subjectivity of Clinical Expertise

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Diane Elizabeth Bird, Tanya Rihtman
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Clinical expertise is the mechanism through which practitioners implement other components of evidence-based practice (EBP). Within occupational therapy practice, intervention approaches that are both closely and loosely aligned with Ayres’ Theory of Sensory Integration are widespread, offering a unique opportunity to investigate the subjective nature of clinical expertise in EBP. Purpose. This qualitative study explored motivations to offer sensory integration-based interventions, and factors informing occupational therapists’ clinical decision making in relation to an arguably contentious evidence base. Method. Six post-graduate sensory integration trained UK occupational therapists participated in individual semi-structured interviews. Interviews were transcribed, member-checked and analyzed using thematic coding analysis. Findings. Despite sound understanding of theory and continuous efforts to develop clinical knowledge, non-traditional hierarchies of evidence notably inform clinical decisions. The clinical expertise required for integration of patient preferences, clinical state and circumstances, and research evidence is informed by pragmatic responses to facilitators and barriers across contexts, combined with unique profession-specific identity factors. Implications. While empirical healthcare research is ideally undertaken under controlled conditions, realities of clinical practice are rarely so clear cut. Study findings highlight important subjective factors that are central to real-world research knowledge translation and further understanding of the clinical expertise component of EBP.

      Authors: Tanya Fawkes, Caitlin S. Croft, Chloe M. Peters, W. Ben Mortenson
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Many occupational therapists make home modification recommendations; however, it is unknown if sustainability considerations (i.e., economic, social, and environmental) are contemplated during this process. Purpose. To understand occupational therapists’ perceptions regarding the sustainability of home modifications. Method. This study adopted a qualitative description approach. Researchers utilized semistructured interviews as the primary means of data collection. Findings. The ten female occupational therapists interviewed had three or more years of experience working with home modifications. The analysis identified three themes: It's not easy being green: environmental sustainability, stretching a dollar: financial inequities, and barriers and benefits in the home modification process. Implications. Findings suggest OTs have a varied and a general understanding of how to implement sustainability concepts in their practice. There is also a need to make access to home modifications more equitable. Further research is needed to build a more robust understanding of how OT recommended home modifications can contribute to sustainability.

      Authors: Megan Edgelow, Ana Petrovic, Clare Gaherty, Agnieszka Fecica
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Public safety personnel (PSP) are frequently exposed to psychological trauma through their work. Evidence shows that worker's compensation claims for work-related psychological injuries are on the rise for PSP. Occupational therapists increasingly provide return to work (RTW) services for this population. Purpose. To explore the therapeutic practices and personal experiences of occupational therapists working with PSP who have work-related psychological injuries. Method. This mixed methods descriptive study included a chart review of available occupational therapy client records from 2016 to 2020 for PSP with work-related psychological injuries from two Ontario companies. Additionally, a web-based self-report survey for Ontario occupational therapists providing RTW services to this same population was available from November 1, 2021 to June 1, 2022. Findings. The chart review included 31 client records and the online survey was completed by 49 Ontario occupational therapists. Therapists commonly provided services in clients’ homes, workplaces, and communities, and focused on functional activities. The evidence base drawn on by therapists was not always occupation-based. Barriers to RTW included challenges with interprofessional collaboration, stigma, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Implications. Occupational therapists are commonly working with PSP with work-related psychological injuries and have the opportunity to contribute to the evidence base for occupational approaches to RTW.

  • Teaching and Evaluating an Occupational Perspective in Canada: A
           Descriptive Qualitative Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Katie Lee Bunting, Kristen Honeybourne, Michelle Wheeler, Susan J. Forwell
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Occupation is the core domain of occupational therapy, and an occupational perspective is foundational for practice. Research has explored how an occupational perspective is taught. Yet, little has explored the Canadian occupational therapy educational context. There are national differences in core competencies and accreditation standards and nuances in how occupation is defined and what conceptual models are used. As such, a Canadian perspective may offer new understandings of value both within and outside of Canada. Purpose. To understand how, in Canada, educators teach and evaluate student occupational perspectives in entry-level master of occupational therapy programs. Method. This study used a descriptive qualitative design with an interpretive approach. Semi-structured interviews were used to gather data from 12 educators from Canadian entry-level occupational therapy programs. Reflexive thematic analysis was used for data analysis. Findings. Five themes were identified: (1) occupational perspectives as pedagogy (2) it's a process, not an end state; (3) “everybody is involved”: a community of educators; (4) thinking critically; and (5) “hard to evaluate.” Conclusion. The complex, dynamic, and contextualized nature of an occupational perspective calls for critical, reflexive, communal, and innovative pedagogical and assessment approaches.

      Authors: Erica Dove, Kelly Hennessy, Athena Kirou-Mauro, Lorna Aitkens, Andrea Duncan, Anne Agur, Emily S. Ho
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Introduction. With technological advancements, anatomy teaching approaches in occupational therapy education have expanded. However, uncertainty remains regarding the approaches that best optimize academic and practice outcomes in student occupational therapists (OTs). Purpose. This scoping review mapped the pedagogical approaches used to teach musculoskeletal anatomy to student OTs. Methods. A scoping review was conducted, with a consultation exercise involving Canadian occupational therapy educators. Six databases were searched, with terms related to student OTs, anatomy, and education. Included articles were available in English, full text; featured empirical research of any study design and/or gray literature; featured a pedagogical approach used to teach anatomy; and targeted student OTs with the pedagogies. Results. Twenty-eight reports between 1978 and 2021 were included. Although technology-based pedagogies became more common with time, historically used pedagogies (e.g., lectures and labs) remained prominent and most common. Narrative synthesis regarding the effectiveness of anatomy pedagogical approaches identified five main factors: (a) anatomy competency; (b) teaching method diversity; (c) learner psychological considerations; (d) interprofessional education; and (e) optimal academic outcomes. Implications. This review demonstrates the importance of anatomy knowledge to occupational therapy education and practice. A diversity of pedagogical approaches, with and without technology, may foster better outcomes by addressing diverse learning needs.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Current international clinical practice guidelines indicate that children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) should receive therapy, yet school and community-based occupational therapy is not standard of care. Purpose. To understand parent perspectives on best practice for treatment and what supports and services are required to meet their children's needs. Method. An online cross-sectional survey (impACT for DCD) was distributed to parents of children  0.05). Parents expressed frustration with poor awareness and understanding of the impact of DCD among educators, health-care professionals, and community members, and identified the need for funded and accessible school and community services and supports. Conclusion. Evidenced-based occupational therapy intervention should be standard of care for children with DCD as per clinical guidelines and parent-identified need.

      Authors: Evelina Pituch, Rym Ben Lagha, Marjorie Aunos, Tiffanie Cormier, Annie Carrier, Cynthia Gagnon, Véronique Gilbert, Aysha Dominique, Antoine Duquette, Marie Turcotte, Rose-Marie Wakil, Carolina Bottari
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Knowledge about the needs of parents with neurological disorders who take care of young children is limited. Purpose. The overall aim of this qualitative study was to explore the perceived unmet parent needs, current supports, and potential solutions to optimize supports of parents with neurological disorders in early childhood in a Canadian setting. Method. Focus groups and individual interviews with parents (n  =  8), spouses (n  =  5), rehabilitation clinicians (n  =  8), community partners (n  =  7), and researchers (n  =  7) were conducted with a total of 35 participants recruited using convenience sampling. Inductive iterative thematic analysis was performed. Findings. The participants identified the need for society to officially recognize parenting with disabilities, adjust public policies, increase the scope of public programs, consider child development and family well-being, and have barrier-free communities. Conclusion. Providing customized solutions that will adequately fill perceived service gaps is of utmost importance to address these families’ needs.

  • Innovation and Competency Development in Occupational Therapy Fieldwork
           During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Monique Gill, Anne Hunt, Andrea Duncan
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background: Occupational therapy clinical education was disrupted because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This introduced both challenges and opportunities in clinical fieldwork education and created a naturalistic opportunity to study the innovations that occurred. Purpose: To identify and describe fieldwork education innovations that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic and understand how these clinical learning contexts impacted competency development in occupational therapy learners. Method: A qualitative multi-case study methodology was used. The participants (N = 28) were occupational therapy learners and preceptors who self-identified as having participated in an innovative fieldwork placement during the pandemic either as a preceptor or learner. Data were collected via in-depth interviews and analyzed to identify cases of innovation. Within and across case analyses were conducted to describe innovations and competencies addressed. Findings: Three cases of fieldwork innovations were identified: (a) Virtual Care; (b) Intrapreneurship; and (c) Administration. The commonly addressed competency domains across the cases were OT Expertise, Excellence in Practice, and Communication and Collaboration. The competency domain, culture, equity, and justice, was only addressed in the virtual care case. Conclusion: Our findings indicate that innovative fieldwork placements can support competency development in occupational therapy; however, this development is complex and contextually based.

  • Biomechanical Demands and User Preference Associated with Wall-Mounted and
           Rim-Mounted Grab Bars

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rebecca Greene, Iris C. Levine, Manon Guay, Alison C. Novak
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Ahead of Print.
      Background. Grab bars are used to support bathing tasks. Sometimes, temporary rim-mounted grab bars may be preferred over permanent wall-mounted grab bars. Purpose. We compared postural requirements, applied loads, and user perceptions between two configurations of rim-mounted grab bars, a vertical wall-mounted grab bar, and a no-grab bar condition. Method. Ten adults entered and exited a simulated bathing environment. Trunk flexion was evaluated via 3D kinematics, while load cells mounted to the grab bars facilitated the evaluation of applied loads. Participants rated each condition on perceived safety, comfort, effectiveness, and ease of use. Findings. Rim-mounted grab bars resulted in greater trunk flexion and greater applied loads and were less favorably perceived. Implications. The rim-mounted grab bars included in this study may induce challenging postural demands and loading scenarios, and occupational therapists should consider whether they meet the needs of their clients.
