Title

Observing Occupational Therapy in Practice

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

My poster will shed light on my cooperative education experience observing occupational therapy in two different clinics, UnityPoint Clinic Therapy - North Crossing and Northern Iowa Therapy (NIT). In both settings I was exposed to a wide variety of patient diagnoses and therapeutic interventions. At North Crossing I observed primarily adult patients who worked to enhance their upper extremity mobility, as well as patients with neurological diagnoses. At NIT I observed primarily pediatric patients. My poster covers my personal experience observing in each clinic, as well as research on a few therapeutic interventions I was introduced to.
