2 The Experience of Poor Sleep and Its Consequences: A Qualitative Study Involving People Referred for Cognitive-Behavioural Management of Chronic Insomnia. - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Six patients seeking treatment for chronic insomnia participated in two focus groups as a first stage of questionnaire design. Despite the low attendance at the groups, the results are presented because they offer an illuminating insight into the experience of insomnia. The participants reported major disruption to their daytime activities, especially in terms of safety and reliability, which could affect their life choices and, they believed, could affect their health. They did not feel understood by others, especially doctors, and wanted better information about insomnia and its management. The study also highlighted practical problems involved in running focus groups as well as ethical considerations that arise when conducting research with current patients. These issues are discussed along with the implications of the research, which raise questions about the role of sleep in maintai

3 Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for People with Chronic Conditions (Practice Analysis) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Practice context There is growing interest among health care professionals in clinical applications of mindfulness meditation, such as dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) (Linehan 1993), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (Segal et al 2002) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). MBSR is a specific application of mindfulness training for people with chronic conditions, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and chronic pain (Salmon et al 2004, Ott et al 2006). It was developed in l979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in the United States, and is now the most frequently cited method of mindfulness training (Baer 2003).

7 The Marches - Rory Stewart
Auteur : Rory Stewart
Genre : Essais et mémoires
Rory Stewart explores his love for the UK in this account of history, memory and landscape as he traverses the the borderlands between England and Scotland.

‘This beautifully written book is a haunting reflection of identity and our relationships with the people and places we love’ Daily Mail

His father Brian taught Rory Stewart how to walk, and walked with him on journeys from Iran to Malaysia. Now they have chosen to do their final walk together along ‘the Marches’ - the frontier that divides their two countries, Scotland and England.

On their six-hundred-mile, thirty-day journey - with Rory on foot, and his father ‘ambushing’ him by car – the pair relive Scottish dances, reflect on Burmese honey-bears, and on the loss of human presence in the British landscape.

Auteur : Linda Hawes Clever, M.E. Bonnie Rogers, Andrea M. Schultz, Catharyn T. Liverman, Committee on the Respiratory Protection Curriculum for Occupational Health Nursing Programs, Board on Health Sciences Policy & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Occupational health nurses (OHNs) are front-line advocates for preventing illness and injury and protecting health in a variety of workplace settings, including the areas of agriculture, construction, health care, manufacturing, and public safety. OHNs need education and training in respiratory protection in order to ensure both their safety and the safety of America's workers.

At the request of the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) examined existing respiratory protection curricula and made recommendations to improve education and training in respiratory protection for OHNs. The IOM finds that current respiratory protection education receives varying amounts of dedicated time and resources and is taught using a variety of approaches. Several recommendations are mad

The more than 200,000 men and women that make up the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) workforce have been entrusted with the ultimate responsibility - ensuring that the homeland is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. Every day, these dedicated individuals take on the critical and often dangerous challenges of the DHS mission: countering terrorism and enhancing national security, securing and managing the nation's borders, enforcing and administering U.S. immigration laws, protecting cyber networks and critical infrastructure, and ensuring resilience in the face of disasters. In return, DHS is responsible for protecting the health, safety, and resilience of those on whom it relies to achieve this mission, as well as ensuring effective management of the medical needs of persons who, in the course of mission execution, come into DHS care or custody.

11 Conceptualising Recovery in Mental Health Rehabilitation (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Recovery as a concept has gained increased attention in the field of mental health. There is an expectation that service providers use a recovery framework in their work. This raises the question of what recovery means, and how it is conceptualised and operationalised. It is proposed that service providers approach the application of recovery principles by considering systematically individual recovery goals in multiple domains, encompassing clinical recovery, personal recovery, social recovery and functional recovery. This approach enables practitioners to focus on service users' personal recovery goals while considering parallel goals in the clinical, social, and role-functioning domains. Practitioners can reconceptualise recovery as involving more than symptom remission, and interventions can be tailored to aspects of recovery of importance to service users.

Auteur : Committee to Assess Training Needs for Occupational Safety and Health Personnel in the United States
Genre : Économie
Despite many advances, 20 American workers die each day as a result of occupational injuries. And occupational safety and health (OSH) is becoming even more complex as workers move away from the long-term, fixed-site, employer relationship.

This book looks at worker safety in the changing workplace and the challenge of ensuring a supply of top-notch OSH professionals. Recommendations are addressed to federal and state agencies, OSH organizations, educational institutions, employers, unions, and other stakeholders.

The committee reviews trends in workforce demographics, the nature of work in the information age, globalization of work, and the revolution in health care delivery-exploring the implications for OSH education and training in the decade ahead.

14 Use of Standardised Assessments and Outcome Measures Among a Sample of Irish Occupational Therapists Working with Adults with Physical Disabilities (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Health professionals, including occupational therapists, are increasingly being encouraged to follow best practice, using research evidence to guide and support their practice. The College of Occupational Therapists (2005) stated that the onus is on each occupational therapist to ensure that his or her practice is based on the best available evidence and that he or she will be accountable for the quality of his or her work. One method of attempting to meet this requirement and develop evidence to support practice may be through the use of standardised assessments and outcome measures. Consistent use of outcome measures to evaluate the effectiveness of the occupational therapy provided is considered fundamental to the establishment of evidence-based occupational therapy (Law et al 2005). Laver Fawcett (2007) emphasised the need for standardised assessment usage among therapis

15 Boredom As an Important Area of Inquiry for Occupational Therapists (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction In an innovative move, boredom has been selected as a focus for research by the newly launched Research Centre for Occupation and Mental Health (RCOMH 2008). In addition, a recent editorial in this journal advocated boredom as an important subject for investigation by occupational therapists (Ilott 2007). The experience of boredom is familiar to us all and is commonly perceived as being on the increase (Mann 2007), yet it has been somewhat neglected as a topic for research to date, in particular by the occupational therapy profession. Perhaps as a consequence of this, it is poorly understood and effective ways of dealing with the experience have yet to be developed.

16 Service Users' Perceptions and Experiences of Goal Setting Theory and Practice in an Inpatient Neurorehabilitation Unit (Research) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Goal setting is the 'cornerstone of effective rehabilitation' (Lawler et al 1999, p402) and, over recent years, the evidence base for goal setting in rehabilitation has grown. However, there is no single clear guiding theory and in clinical practice there are many options for setting goals (Playford et al 2009). Patient and public involvement is high on the political agenda and current clinical recommendations also place the individual at the centre of the goal setting process (Department of Health 2005, Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party 2008); therefore, this study aimed to explore service users' perceptions of the key aspects of goal setting theory and practice.

Short Report This paper reports on the experience of informal carers whose family members have received occupational therapy. The qualitative study focused on one city. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with six carers and the interviews were analysed using thematic analysis. The carers were generally satisfied with the occupational therapy that the care recipient received. The carers felt involved in the occupational therapy, although some had a lengthy wait for this. There were limited examples to demonstrate that carers received support in their own right during assessment and intervention. These findings highlighted the need for a timely occupational therapy service and the potential need to expand occupational therapists' role with carers.

19 Graduates' Reflections on Their Preparation for Practice (Research) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy

Introduction The challenge for occupational therapy educators is to stimulate students to acquire knowledge and think in ways that will prepare them for practice, including both objective analysis as required in evidence-based-practice and the more subjective or intuitive analysis of everyday practice (Spalding 2000, Craik and McKay 2003). In 1990, West identified that it was crucial to 'teach principles rather than techniques, and knowledge rather than skills' (p9). This was to enable graduates to take an objective analytical approach in order that they could explain the reasoning behind the actions taken when dealing with challenging clinical problems.

Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy

Older people may cease driving owing to health concerns, discomfort while driving, cancellation of their licence or financial reasons. Because driving is fundamental to the freedom and independence of older people, driving cessation can lead to depression, loss of roles and unsafe use of alternative transport. Little consideration has been given to the development of approaches to improve outcomes for retiring drivers. This study aimed to understand the experiences of driving cessation for older people to inform the design of interventions for retiring drivers. Qualitative methodology was used to explore the experiences of driving cessation from the perspective of nine retired drivers, three family members and six service providers. The retired drivers experienced challenges during three phases of driving cessation, in addition to discussing their driving history. The challenges were (1)

Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction An estimated 4 million people use illicit drugs annually in the United Kingdom (Roe and Man 2006), with 160,450 using treatment services in England (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence [NICE] 2007). Drug misuse is a complex phenomenon, causing physical, psychological, social and criminal justice problems (National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse [NTA] 2002, NICE 2007). These can result in a range of occupational problems, which there is potential for occupational therapy to address. However, there is limited research on the nature of these problems or guidance on the role of occupational therapy. The relevant NICE guidelines and commissioning framework document for England (NTA 2002, NICE 2007) only mention occupational therapy once each (in reference to being a multidisciplinary team member).

22 Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Occupational Disruption in Primary Care: Is There a Role for Occupational Therapy?(Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ ME) is a fluctuating and heterogeneous illness of uncertain aetiology (CFS/ME Working Group 2002), which can cause significant disability in terms of the effect upon the person's physical, cognitive, affective and spiritual aspects of occupational performance (Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists [CAOT] 1997). The prognosis for those who develop CFS/ME is generally considered to be poor and people may be affected for less than 2 years or remain ill for several decades, but 'full recovery after symptoms have persisted for more than 5 years is rare' (CFS/ME Working Group, p7). Subsequently, the person's ability to engage in his or her chosen occupations may be challenged further by the physical, cultural, social and institutional (CAOT 1997) environments in which the person resides.

25 Spirituality, Occupation and Occupational Therapy Revisited: Ongoing Consideration of the Issues for Occupational Therapists (Opinion) (Report) - Lesley Wilson
Auteur : Lesley Wilson
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction How can spirituality, something so universal and yet so individual, be explained in the pragmatic and practical world of occupational therapy? These are interesting times to reconsider spirituality because the general consciousness of people across the globe appears to be moving towards a more esoteric awareness. The materialism of the last few decades is increasingly rejected and lessons from popular explorations and positive psychology (for example, Frey and Stutzer 2001, Seligman 2002) suggest that people are not necessarily made happier by wealth or even health but by doing things that have meaning for them, such as spending time with friends, being creative, having a value system or simply having fun. A loss of such meaning in life's occupations may cause a person to become 'dispirited', which could eventually lead to illness and disease, both physical and psychologi

26 From Practice to Praxis: Reconnecting Moral Vision with Philosophical Underpinnings (Research) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction It is usual in many contemporary health care settings for occupational therapists to work as part of a multidisciplinary team. The rationale for having a team of professionals who provide care is that each professional group represented by the various team members contributes a unique specialty skill or perspective that enhances the care provided to the client. While there are some tasks and skills that team members have in common, essentially it is the difference between team members that contributes to the strength and utility of the team. Indeed, having a diverse group of professionals providing care means that a better service can be provided than if just one person with only one skill set was involved. Although this is the ideal for team-based practice, the reality is often quite different, with role identity confusion, role overlap, role blurring and even role 'viol

27 Moving Into Housing: Experiences of Developing Specialist Occupational Therapy Posts in Local Authority Housing Departments (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Housing adaptations installed using public monies are usually funded through a local authority housing department finance system. Occupational therapists working with these adaptations have traditionally done so from a base in social care (Department of Communities and Local Government [DCLG] 2006, section 5.8). The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 assumes that this is the case when requiring the housing authority to consult the welfare authority over the necessity and appropriateness of adaptations. Although occupational therapists are not specified as the recommending officers for the welfare authority, in practice they are generally seen as the professionals with the most relevant skills and knowledge to fulfil this duty and are thus central to most publicly funded adaptations.

Introduction Occupations are the everyday meaningful activities that people engage in related to work, leisure and self-care, which are central components of occupational therapy. With the move to community-based care, occupational therapists have taken on a range of different roles, and many have been involved in the vocational rehabilitation of people with mental health problems. Davis and Rinaldi (2004) discussed how a mental health trust actively promoted vocational rehabilitation through implementing evidence-based principles within the clinical teams. They reported how the trust acknowledged the unique contribution of occupational therapy, in partnership with vocational services, to enable service users to access competitive employment, mainstream education and voluntary work. They suggested that occupational therapists explore the more complex roles, tasks and meaningful activitie

No registry of worldwide liver transplants (LTs) exists. More people wait, and many die waiting, because transplantation is both costly and uses scarce resources. Liver failure is typically insidious in onset. Most people enter transplant surgery following serious disruptions in the way they are able to function. This disruption is characterised in a study of 15 occupational therapists in the north-east of England and Scottish borders who treat people with chronic liver disease as due to encephalopathy, fatigue, confusion, weakness and social isolation (Elliott et al 2010). Liver transplantation is a complicated surgery followed by long recovery, lifelong drug therapy and habit change to pre

32 Meeting the Needs of Women in Mental Health Rehabilitation Services (Research) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy

Introduction Concerns about inadequacies in mental health care for women led to the development of a strategy document for the organisation and provision of mental health services for women (Department of Health 2002). This included having access to women-only services, groups and social activities; being able to choose to have a female keyworker; and, for inpatients, having single-sex lounges, sleeping, toilet and bathing facilities. To address these recommendations, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (CIFT), formerly Camden and Islington Mental Health and Social Care Trust, developed a women's strategy (Camden and Islington Mental Health and Social Care Trust 2002) and implementation group.

37 Identifying Predictors of Function in People with Diabetes Living in the Community (Research) (Report) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Diabetes mellitus (DM) affects more than 100 million people worldwide. Approximately 60-70% of people with diabetes have some form of associated nerve damage, caused by a progressive axonopathy of dyingback type characterised by myelinated fibre loss and decreased fibre regeneration (Bril et al 1996). Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is the most frequent form and a common cause of morbidity in patients with diabetes (Rumrill et al 1997, Bril 2000). The diagnosis of DPN is based on a neurological assessment and on laboratory evaluation (Bril et al 1996). Electromyography (EMG) studies are an important component of the electrodiagnostic evaluation of peripheral neuropathies (Bril 2000). Electrophysiological studies reflect the clinical findings and tend to be more pronounced in the legs. The neurological examination includes inspection for wasting, fasciculation, manual mu

38 Redesigning Occupational Therapy Service Provision to Increase Efficiency, Effectiveness and Stakeholder Satisfaction (Practice Evaluation) - British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Practice Evaluation The Newham Children's Services Occupational Therapy Department faced a number of major challenges, including an insufficient capacity to meet the growing demand for services, insufficient funding, an inability to fill posts consistently and an extremely long waiting list. It used business process redesign (BPR) techniques to address these problems. The redesign process involved a systematic and thorough approach to problem solving and the implementation of the solutions. Within 3 years, the team had decreased significantly both the rate of formal complaints and the length of the waiting list. It had also increased staff retention and morale. The team's success demonstrates that BPR can be a useful tool in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of occupational therapy services and stakeholder satisfaction.

This is the first in a series of three articles that explores occupational therapy's philosophical foundations in rationalism and Romanticism. The articles report the findings of a study that employed a history of ideas approach, which centres on the ideas people hold and how those change over time. The core idea in this study was that people's sense of themselves is expressed through the things that they have and use, a proposition that was explored in the context of occupational therapy as it was becoming established in the United Kingdom. The data comprised references to objects in occupational therapy texts and a precursor to the British journal published in England in the 25-year period between 1938 and 1962, which were analysed to identify the ways in which therapists thought about the things that they used in practice, along with those that they asked their patients to make.

Background The Children Act (2004) created a legislative framework to ensure that all services work together to protect children and enable them to reach their potential. Services for children, provided by health, education and social care in the United Kingdom, are being reconfigured as the recommendations of Every Child Matters are implemented (Scottish Executive 2001, Department for Education and Skills [DfES] 2004, Department of Health 2004, Welsh Assembly 2005). Schools must rise to the challenge of being at the 'epicentre' of community health and education resources, with responsibility for supporting children and families 365 days a year (Reid 2005). The Government's stated intention that by 2010 extended schools will offer a range of services, including swift and easy access to specialist support, has prompted therapists to explore new ways of working with schools that deliver fl

Auteur : AJOT: American Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
The role of occupational therapists working with children is to promote their full participation in the occupations of everyday living. Occupational therapists do this using a variety of service models ranging from consultation to direct service delivery. They also use a wide variety of intervention approaches; the specific approaches chosen by an occupational therapist in any particular case depends on his or her perspective regarding the nature of the problems experienced by the child and how best to address these problems. In today's research-informed health care climate, however, an occupational therapist's choice of intervention must be informed not only by his or her underlying conceptual perspective but also by the latest and best evidence regarding the effectiveness of the intervention. Moreover, the education and training of occupational therapy students must be updated frequent

45 Codes of Ethics in Occupational Health--are They Important? Ethical Dilemmas and Moral Challenges in Occupational Health (Report) - CME: Your SA Journal of CPD

This article addresses the ethical competence of occupational health professionals (OHPs). Ethical dilemmas and moral challenges are part of everyday life in occupational health (OH), increasingly requiring that OH practitioners are competent in dealing with these issues. According to Susanne Rameix of the Sorbonne University of Paris, ethics is not a science, (1) nor is it an institutionalised system of regulations. It is a matter of knowing what to do. Since the days of Socrates, philosophers have engaged the difficulties of teaching ethics. A fundamental question occupying the minds of philosophers is whether or not there is a universal set of values more or less shared by countries and different world cultures. It does seem possible to discern a set of basic values transcending most cultures with reference to the importance of 'anti-egotist' (in contrast to 'egotist') values emphasis

Auteur : New Zealand Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Simply put, occupational science is the formal study of the things people do; making a cup of tea, singing in a choir, working the night shift. In this article, we describe how studying ordinary occupations such as these supports the practice of occupational therapy. To do that we address the basic questions people bring to any new endeavour: What is it? Where did it come from? How is it useful? What happens next? In addressing these questions, we have an unashamed bias towards New Zealand research and literature, believing that ideas from overseas are not integrated into practice until they have been tested in our own context. We also draw on our own scholarship and practice examples of local therapists, demonstrating that New Zealand has a stake in creating and applying this emerging science.

Auteur : British Journal of Occupational Therapy
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction The provision of adaptive equipment to older people living at home maintains and improves independence and reduces health and social care costs (Logan et al 1997, Mann et al 1999). Physical disability is the best predictor of adaptive equipment use (Tomita et al 2004). Despite legislation that attributes the statutory responsibility for such services to local authorities (National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990), the Audit Commission (2000) has found that provision is inadequate and geographically variable. Questionnaire and interview studies have shown that provision is influenced adversely by inconsistencies in referral mechanisms, eligibility criteria and funding (Cowan and Turner-Smith 1999, Carpenter et al 2002).

A literature review was conducted to facilitate allied health professionals' implementation of the recommendations made by the Prevention of Falls Network Europe (ProFaNE) (Yardley et al 2007a) on promoting older people's engagement in activities to prevent falls. The falls prevention literature was searched for relevant papers to aid allied health professionals' choice of strategies and to inspire ideas about how to implement ProFaNE's recommendations in everyday practice. Suggestions for each of the six ProFaNE recommendations are made, which may in turn promote older people's adherence to falls prevention interventions.
