OT is actively responding to the current political climate of healthcare reform with the reaffirmation of professional roots in occupation. Therapists are advocating for the power of occupation as an evidence-based practice, yet in many settings is under-utilized. OTs find value in occupation-based interventions (OBI), but are facing barriers to implementation. This study examined the current trends and barriers in the use of OBI in the hand-therapy setting.
