OT Practice Framework
- Consists of 2 parts: Domain and Process
- The categories include performance areas of occupation (7), Performance skills (2), performance patterns (3), contexts (7), activity demands (7), and client factors (2).
International Classification of Function (ICF)
- Created by the World Health Organization.
- Reflects the shift to a holistic and systems perspective of global health care from a reductionistic view.
^ ^ ^
(impairment) (limitations) (Restriction)
^ ^ ^
Environmental & Personal Factors
Purpose of ICF
- To provide a scientific basis for studying health and health determinants.
- Establish a common language
- Provide systematic coding for purposes of record keeping and research.
New Definitions- ICF
- Handicap is changed to " participation restriction".
- Disability " " "activity limitation."
- Impairment " " "health condition."
- Global Health care model
- Emerged in 1960's
- Founded by Canadian Occupational Therapy Association (CAOT)
- It is the basic therapy model for the AOTA Practice Framework.
- Carl Roger's "person-centered" therapy approach.
- Collaborative partnership
- Holistic and global
Six Principles of Client-centered Practice
1. The client is capable of choice.
2. Flexible & individualized approach
3. Therapist's role as enabler ( Therapist shares power & empowers client).
4. Success measured by client's attainment of goals (client set own priorities)- realistic goals.
5. Need for contextual congruence- (interventions have meaning in client's own life settings.)
6. Client readiness to use therapist expertise.
Canadian Model of Occupational Performance
- Illustrates how occupational performance evolves from the interactions between the person, the environment, and the occupation itself.
CMOP Six Points
1) Functioning ability is based on the interactive effects between person, occupation, and environment.
2) Changes in any part of the system can impact occupational performance.
3) Motivation is considered, to be intrinsic (within) and facilitated by clients' participation in identifying meaningful goals and occupational priorities.
4) There is not a specific plan for how to apply the therapeutic process.
5) "Facilitating, guiding, coaching, prompting, listening, reflecting, encouraging, or otherwise collaborative with people are general intervention strategies.
6) Therapeutic process is guided by the 6 general principles of client centered practice.
3 Paradigms Shifts of OT
1) Paradigm of Occupation (1900-1940s)
2) Mechanistic Paradigm (1950s-1970s)
3) New Emerging Paradigm (1980s-2000)
(Initial) Paradigm of Occupation (1900-1940s)
- Moral treatment (advocating for persons with mental illness by participating in occupations that "normalized" behavior.
- Origin: Consolation House & Hull House
- Occupation: was the central phenomenon of interest referring to balance of work, play, self-care, & rest; holistic view.
- Based on common sense. Evidence was absent.
Mechanistic Paradigm (reductionist) (1950's-1970's)
- Medical model (reductionistic) replaces "occupations" of moral treatment ( disability oriented)
- OT's seek to gain professional respect as a scientific discipline by focusing on disease.
- Specialization is a popular trend.
- Loss: commitment to occupational performance. ( Gave up vocational training)
- Gain- New assistive devices, technology, techniques (SI:sensory integration: NDT: neural developmental treatment.)
New Emerging Paradigm (contemporary or current) (1980s-present)
- Re-commitment to holistic view and the occupational nature of humans.
- Client centered practice including active engagement & empowerment.
- Systems theoretical view
- Balance of the art(early practice) & science(mechanistic) of practice(reform old thinking and make it more holistic.
8 Major Trends
1. Moving away from the Medical Model. ex) reductionistic.
2) Moving towards holistic approach.
3) Expanding the definition of Occupation
ex) Looking at wellness, prevention, education and industry.
4) Understanding cognition, sensation, and neuroscience. ex) Increased knowledge in this area to help w/ patient treatment.
5) Embracing occupational science. ex) Looking at evidence and how it related to treatment.
6) Building of evidence based practice.
ex) need for research to support & expand OT.
7) Human adaptation in the context of culture and community. Ex) seen in the practice framework. Class ex) completed tub training but she didn't use a tub.
8) Putting client first. Ex) Taking time to talk to the client.

*To address performance issues in AREAS OF OCCUPATION you must know what PERFORMANCE SKILLS are needed and what PERFORMANCE PATTERNS are used.
Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (Process)
- Process is dynamic: Note: start w/ occupational science and context in relation to Process of practice: Service delivery.
- Client centered

- Process begins by evaluating client's occupational needs, problems & concerns
- Sets stage for all that follows.
- Occupational Profile: where the process starts. You get clients perception. Find out about the person from family. First time you talk to them.
- Analysis of occupation Performance: we need to understand-> performance skills, client centered, etc.
OTPF: Intervention- Steps in service Delivery
