I hope it is okay to post here. I am a third year occupational therapy student and as part of our course we are looking at coming up with a service to fill any gaps in an occupational therapy service. I am looking at improving hand therapy services. I was hoping that some of you could tell me if you are having difficulty with any activities you feel an occupational therapist could help with. For example:
-Are you a parent? Do you have difficulty completing activities with your children and feel as though you would like more help to be able to complete activities with and for your children?
-Are you having difficulties with household activities, like housework or cooking?
-Do you find it difficult to complete activities with your friends and family?
-Do you find it hard to excercise?
-Do you find it hard to do certain hobbies you enjoy?
-Do you find it difficult to complete your job?
-Do you feel as though you need advice in how to tell others about your illnesss or that it would be helpful for occupational therapists to spend time explaining the impact of RA to your friends and family?
-Any other difficulties you can think of
Thank you in advance,
