Home-modification interventions addressing falls and participation in activities of daily living among older adults: a scoping review protocol

  Gifty M Georlee1, Abiram U1, Pham Ngoc Dat2, Nguyen Khac Tuan3, Shashank Mehrotra4  Abstract Introduction Falls are the second leading reason for incidental or unexpected deaths worldwide. Many older adults who fall, regardless of whether they are injured or not, tend to experience fear of fall and this can lead to decreased participation in activities of daily living (ADLs).

Culture, race and ethnicity and the impact on Occupational Performance

“Culture us profoundly and inextricably tied to matters of health and healthcare”  – Jaime Phillip Munoz (2007) PRACTICE DILEMMA 1: The young, Caucasian occupational therapy (OT) student walked into the clinic of a large urban hospital knowing that the first patient of the day was a 54-year-old African – American man who was a day laborer on the piers. He had recently had hand surgery for a Dupuytren contracture release and needed functional activities to stretch the tendons in the third and fourth fingers of his dominant right hand. She greeted him warmly and then went to the cupboards and pulled out a sand painting kit.
