Discharge Planning Part 1: Introduction to OT in Acute Care

Presented by

Suzanne Holm OTD, OTR, BCPR, and Helene Smith-Gabai PhD, OTR/L, BCPR

This course sets the stage for understanding occupational therapy’s role in the acute care setting, and how discharge planning and recommendations have evolved as an essential part of a patient’s road to recovery and rehabilitation. The paradigm shift in OT services from Assessment-Intervention-Discharge Planning to Assessment-Discharge Planning is discussed. Occupational therapy practitioners must consider both the internal and external factors when making discharge recommendations to minimize the risk of adverse events and readmissions. Finally, this course reviews the different types of settings that patients may be transferred to after discharge along with their criteria, to help the OT practitioner effectively problem solve in making the most appropriate recommendation.

The course is appropriate for occupational and assistants, and is available via annual subscription to the MedBridge CPD platform. Subscribe here: for access to 2000 CPD courses for AHPs for only US$200.
