Welcome to my profession.
It does not matter if I hear advocacies more than treatment strategies, every time I attend conferences. When you get burned out from work, most of the time, that's all you ever want to hear for you to go back on the saddle and move forward.
Occupational therapy is a very fluid profession. You cannot box how you manage your clients. You cannot make up a "combo meal". Most of the time, common sense is not so common for the people we help.
Door too small, the wheel gets caught? Turn the wheel in. Utensils too small? Punch a hole thru an old medicine bottle to adapt a built up handle. Couch too low? Put another pillow, wrap with a sheet to make it stable.
Possibilities are endless. I thank Occupational therapy for bringing more common sense into the world.
