Accreditation Check:

This course will teach participants the three components that must be met and documented in the medical record to report the appropriate occupational therapy evaluation complexity level. The course will teach participants how patient comorbidities may impact occupational performance. The course will teach participants the importance of documenting the amount of assistance and/or modification that the occupational therapist provides during the initial evaluation in order for the patient to complete the task. Finally, this course will use case scenarios in orthopedics, pediatrics and neurology to teach participants how to determine the appropriate complexity level and the documentation that must be present in the medical record to support their choice.
