With Interventions, Effects, and Outcomes in Occupational Therapy: Adults and Older Adults, Drs. Mary Law and Mary Ann McColl have assembled the evidence for effectiveness of occupational therapy for adults and older adults. Interventions, Effects, and Outcomes in Occupational Therapy brings together the latest published peer-reviewed literature, conceptual approaches, outcome measures, and intervention approaches to address the three main areas by: Identifying a finite set of interventions which occupational therapists deliver most often, and to provide details of those intervention approaches Identifying where the research evidence shows that occupational therapists can achieve specific positive effects as a result of those interventions Identifying the outcome measures most commonly and reliably used by researchers in occupational therapy to demonstrate the effects of interventions Drs.
