Occupational Therapy Tertiary Prevention: Occupational Capstone Project

Excerpt from Capstone Project :

This research will tie together the research that has preceded it in this area.

Benefits

This research will result in improved patient outcomes, which will benefit the patients, skilled nursing facilities, occupational therapists and other stakeholders.

Goals

This project will focus on ways to determine when occupational therapy would be helpful for patients and when it would not likely be of benefit.

SMART Process Objectives

This research will result in a deliverable that will present the results of the data obtained during the research study. This document will present the literature review, data and analysis from the research study. This research will provide a data breakdown as to the conditions and initial assessment categories of the patients. It will evaluate the effectiveness of occupational therapy for each of these patient categories.

Deliverables

The key deliverable for this project will be the final report detailing the conduct, data, and results of the study.

Success Criteria

The project will be a success if differences are found that are predictive of the outcome of occupational therapy in skilled nursing facility patients.

Risk Management/Support Strategies

The key risk in this study is the inability to assess certain patients due to their physical condition. For instance, they might not be able to talk, or to physically respond to the assessment questionnaire. In these cases, the nurses will be enlisted to help complete the assessment. Another risk is that the sample population might change between the beginning and the end of the study. The final study will be assessed according to the number of patients who actually complete the study.
