Abstract

Providing best practice has always been at the forefront of occupational therapy. As can be seen by the evidence discussed in this column, occupational therapy practitioners provide evidence-based interventions to older adults to address a wide range of challenges in many settings. It is the responsibility of occupational therapy practitioners to be effective players on their interprofessional team of colleagues and be mindful of the need to provide quality care to oldest adults and others with acute and chronic health care needs. By incorporating interventions that have strong and moderate evidence such as those listed in this article, occupational therapy practitioners fulfill the goals of the triple aim, providing effective and cost-effective services.
