Carly Andre, MOT, OTR/L      

Marquis Tualatin, 19805 SW Boones Ferry Rd, Tualatin, OR 97062

Brief course description: This course will discuss the importance of including caregivers in the acute care process, maximizing involvement through therapeutic use of self, and review importance of using a family-centered approach to achieve the best outcomes while also attempting to reduce hospital-related trauma. A review of literature and specific examples of program development will highlight occupational therapists’ unique role in elevating the standard of care at their current workplace to include co occupation and family centered care in everyday practice.

2-5 learning objectives: 

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the principles of co-occupation and how it relates to their specific workplace.
  • Discuss one area in participant’s current setting that could benefit from program development to maximize family-centered care. 
  • Understand therapeutic use of self and how it relates to co-occupation and family-centered care.
