  • The New Generation of 'Old'

    With the oldest of the Baby Boomers - age 66 - dancing in the aisles last Thursday night to the music their generation has made immortal, Joseph F. Coughlin, PhD, declared that the era of the aging had begun in America.

  • Re: Occupation: Changing the Paradigm of OT

    LTC-OT and others:&nbsp; Be sure to&nbsp; take a look at the new Questions, Answers and Ideas section by Charla Holst. The way in which she brings occupation into everyday patient encounters is&nbsp;phenomenal. One of the newest ways she's suggested is to let the patient speak first, and often he or she will actually tell you what the occupation ...

  • Re: Occupation: Changing the Paradigm of OT

    I loved Florence Clark's essay on dancing a few months back on the AOTA website. It was a personal experience that showed occupation so vividly. In order to try to win AOTF's Dancing with the Stars event at last year's national conference, she talked her husband into taking dancing lessons - not sure which kind, it may have been tango. Anyway, she ...

  • AOTA Calls MPPR Proposal Illegal

    In a strongly worded comment letter to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services August 24, the American Occupational Therapy Association accused CMS of literally breaking federal law in parts of its proposed 2011 update of the Physicians' Fee Schedule. The document sets the rules as to how much the government will pay for therapy services, ...

  • Re: Occupation-based practice

    &nbsp; Dear LTC-OT: I can feel your frustration. In so many places practice is rigidly controlled by factors outside OT. But I do know that a few years ago Medicare put very stringent standards into place for nursing homes in terms of the types of activities and choices&nbsp;residents are to be offered. The rules are highly occupational. ...

  • Occupation-based practice

    I'd like to start a discussion on occupation-based practice. What do think it is or isn't, and how much of it do you feel you use in your practice?

  • Want to Be a 'Disaster Hero' ?

    If you want to catch Americans' attention, I guess the best way to do it is to make a game of things. Especially a video game. That's what the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has decided. That's why game developer and publisher Legacy Interactive® has signed a contract with the American College of Emergency Physicians to develop a set ...

    &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Not long after rejecting a restructuring proposal that would have replaced the RA with a 15- to 21-member regional council yesterday, the Representative Assembly moved ahead to look at the issues that proposal addressed. The assembly voted 35-27 against a re-constituted motion put forth by outgoing President Penny Moyers ...
