Choosing Wisely: Promoting Best Practice in Occupational Therapy
Saturday, November 9, 2019, 9:00 - 9:45 AM

AOTA has been involved in the Choosing Wisely Campaign for the past several years. The goal of this campaign is to increase dialogue between occupational therapy practitioners and clients to make wise decisions about care that is evidence based and supported by evidence. This lecture will review our profession's involvement with the campaign, the recommendations, and end with a dialogue regarding implementation.

Glen is best known in the community for his contribution to the literature, the textbooks Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach now in its fourth edition and Cognitive and Perceptual Rehabilitation: Optimizing Function.
