Challenge: ourpractice to become occupation-based

  • Fran Aiken,professional practice leader,Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centrewrites.
  • I had always felt rooted to occupation as the basis of practice,but,I experienced disease-oriented health care and OT
  • I welcomed the 1997 Enabling Occupation guidelines and initiatedthe gradual shift to occupation-based practice

28. Be Daring: Occupation-based practice

  • Sunnybrook OTsdiscovered :
  • A MEANING GAP : I think we always struggle with being true to our profession and yet being true to the program that we work in.
  • Resolving the meaning gap is apersonal journey
  • Therapistswhohighly value occupationandsee the potential for client occupational engagementin their daily roles are enthusiastic therapists, whoderive personal meaning and satisfactionwithin their own occupation, despite other challenges in their work environment.

29. Be daring: Contribute to society

  • The Canadian guidelines for client-centred practice and enabling occupation have had a great impact in Europe because these concepts match very well with the European values like freedom, democracy, equality, human dignity and solidarity and withEuropean Social Policy clients say :OT works too often only with the individual and this is a pity since they have much to contribute on society level.
