Occupational Therapists (OTs) are health care professionals who utilize evidence-based practice, research, scientific evidence, and a holistic perspective to promote independence, meaningful occupations, and the patient's functional ability to achieve daily routines/roles of choice. OTs ensure their patient-oriented interventions are effective. OTs have background training about psychological, physical, emotional, and social makeup. OTs also have immense training to treat the whole body including neurological principles, anatomy/physiological concepts, and psychological perspectives. They support individuals across their lifespan to fulfill meaningful activities, known as occupations, individually by using therapeutic interventions. Occupational therapists work in a variety of fields such as pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, or geriatrics. The main approach of occupational therapy is to assist individuals regaining skills, as well as increasing their abilities and decreasing limitations of any kind of disability. OTs evaluate the individual as well as their home and other close environments, and recommend adaptive equipment and training in its use, guidance, and education for family members and caregivers. Together they determine the patient’s individual goals. OTs customize each intervention to improve a person’s ability to perform daily life activities and to reach his or her goals. OTs perform outcomes measures to evaluate the person’s abilities and to ensure there is progress toward the goals. This outcome evaluation also helps the therapist to understand if an intervention plan must be changed.
