The Role Of An Occupational TherapistOccupational therapists (OTs) work with people with mentally, physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling conditions to improve their ability to function effectively in living and working environments. Their role is to help their patients lead independent and productive lives by improving their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, as well as find solutions to deal with permanent loss of function.
These health care professionals have to deal with people of all ages. Job opportunities for occupational therapists abound in all areas of primary care, care management, physical rehabilitation, pediatrics, mental health service and environmental adaptation.
Occupational Therapists - Dynamic Role
OTs have to carry out different treatment programs efficiently on the basis on their evaluation of the condition of the patient. They help them regain their abilities to perform their routine activities independently. This may include grooming, cooking, dressing, work activities, play, leisure or even educational activities. They have to take care of the sensory motor, cognitive and psychological aspects of the patient. Birth injuries, learning problems, developmental disabilities, behavioral problems, eating disorders, burns, injuries or even cognitive problems can be corrected through occupational therapy.
Developing Accurate Treatment Plans
OT's provide special treatment programs to suit the needs of each patient. Rehabilitative devices such as splints, wheelchairs and other aids are utilized to help individuals adapt to their routine life activities. Apart from this, an occupational therapy professional has to assess and record the progress of their treatment programs. It is the responsibility of the occupational therapist to provide their patients' caregivers and family members the guidance and recommendations necessary for patient care.
