Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2002 - Medical - 144 pages
Interaction between professionals/students in various disciplines leads to greater respect, cooperation, and practical knowledge for all!

Interprofessional Collaboration in Occupational Therapy, written by experienced occupational therapists, examines successful programs and models of practice involving collaboration between OT clinicians and allied health professionals. This vital information can help you deliver services to the elderly, the underserved, and the chronically ill that are more effective than traditional primary care models.

This book will show you how to apply the concepts of interprofessional collaboration to:
  • increase professional competence and public accountability
  • improve the cost-effectiveness of the way your resources are used
  • gain better evidence-based decision-making skills
  • make more effective referrals
  • avoid duplication of services to clients
  • make better use of faculty time and classroom space by teaching subjects common to various health professions--anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and other basic sciences
