Occupational Therapist seeks input to shape support for services

October 8, 2019

An Occupational Therapist has joined the CWC PCN and is developing a plan to assist our Social Work and Senior Services teams.

To inform the process, we are collecting feedback from members to identify gaps in the primary care system for all stages of life—from pediatrics to seniors—and what services would be of most interest to you.

Please contact your Physician Liaison if you would like to share your knowledge to help shape our programs.

October is Occupational Therapy Month

In recognition of Occupational Therapy Month, we would like to offer a brief overview of the profession’s mindset, skills and benefits.

Occupational Therapists believe that occupations (activities) describe who you are and how you feel about yourself. If you are unable to do the things you want, or need to do, to live and enjoy your life, your general well-being may be affected.

  • Occupational Therapists can assess function, assist with making appropriate referrals to other services, educate caregivers and connect families to community resources.
  • Occupational therapy helps to solve the problems that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them.
  • It can also prevent a problem or minimize its effects.

An Occupational Therapist can help when an injury, illness, disability or other problem limits a person’s ability to:

  • Learn self-care skills or take care of themselves
  • Participate in play, school, paid or unpaid work
  • Enjoy leisure time (e.g. hobbies, sports, spend time with family)

Please contact your Physician Liaison with your feedback or for any other reason related to the CWC PCN.
