Clinical Reasoning in Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Clinical reasoning for pediatric occupational therapists should be informed by neuroscience, developmental theory, occupational science, and clinical practice, including tacit clinical knowledge - all rich sources of evidence and inspiration. However, combining all of these sources of information into a format useful for in-the-moment clinical use can be daunting. In this course, you will be introduced to a clinical reasoning framework for combining sensory, affective, and motor processing into a relationship-based model to allow therapists to create and implement effect treatment plans as well as monitor progress. The aim of the clinical reasoning process is to help the therapist identify the underlying issues and provide comprehensive treatment and supports while building targeted skills in order to shift the adaptive functioning of the client/child. The clinical reasoning format lends itself as a guide to treatment to address the most common clusters of difficulties/diagnostic conditions seen by pediatric occupational therapists. This course will provide theory and practical information for enhancing OT clinical work with children with a broad range of neurodevelopmental conditions including those categorized as having sensory integrative difficulties or "SPD" concerns. Learning sound clinical reasoning allows the therapist to commit to excellence in their evidence-based approach to treatment and establishes the OT as a strong member of a multidisciplinary team.

    During the admission process, the election statement is frequently viewed by the hospice team as a technical requirement. While it is that, it is also part of the process of making sure the patient and/or the patient's representative is informed and has been given an opportunity to make decisions. These decisions include choosing the hospice and the attending physician and determining when hospice care starts. Medicare is increasingly focused on a patient's right to be involved in decisions when it comes to their own care. The technical requirements of a hospice election statement are there to protect patients and their representatives and ensure they understand how the benefit works, including what will and will not be covered under their election. Additionally, there are many times in hospice when a patient may not be able to make decisions or sign the election and will have a representative. This course reviews the technical requirements and the decision-making authority of representatives.
