The second edition of the OTPF also emphasizes that humans are occupational beings for the sake of one’s health and independence (AOTA, 2008). At this particular outpatient clinic, the OTPF is used to identify and explain the meaning of certain terms such as IADL or purposeful activity to clients, family members, other practitioners, and insurance companies.

Evidence based practice is the act of incorporating clinical expertise, best research evidence and patient values and preferences in delivering care. This system, as opposed to previous methods that used the same standard of care for each patient, evaluates treatment plans based on research and the practioners own experiences. The usual workup of this type of practice is to ask a series of “why” questions and meticulously observe patient patterns to paint a better picture of the environmental factors surrounding the patient’s condition.

Following the first instance, I was only out of my home for a week. The other one required a short stint as a foster child and a longer placement in a group home. Even though my mother’s previous employment entailed being responsible for the safety of abused children, she neglected to protect me. Countless professionals told her that my refusing to return to that environment was the healthiest response to the abuse, she continued to rely on the advice of a psychologist that I never met.

The RN would record the evaluation summary in the nursing note or care plan about the conclusion whether the outcome was achieved and the reassessment data supports the judgment.
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store.
