Accident, illness, planned surgery and ageing can turn everyday activities into challenges which reduce independence and undermine our sense of identity. Occupational therapists recognise that being able to perform these daily activities is crucial to health & wellbeing, and aim therapy towards empowering people to be active participants in their own lives. They work with people who have difficulties carrying out these activities because of disability, illness, trauma, ageing, and a range of long-term conditions. Grantham Hospital cover in-patients, out-patients and some community patients.
Whilst on placement, individuals will be introduced to the role of the Occupational Therapy team within the acute hospital setting. The individual will gain an insight through observation of the Occupational Therapist completing their daily interventions. The individual may also be given the opportunity to participate in an Occupational Therapy quiz, activity simulation and group activities. The Occupational Therapist will ensure that the interventions observed will be appropriate to ensure the well-being of the student. Individuals are informed that the observation of patient treatment is subject to patient approval.
