    (treatment planning process step 2)
    • primary responsibility of the OTR
    • profile strengths and weaknesses
    • analysis of performance(this is what ota's work from)
  11. Set goals and priorities(treatment planning process step 3)
    formulated from the problem list you have compiled in collaboration with the client/patient.

    Goals-Long term goals(LTG)

    Objectives-short term goals(STG)

    • Goals and objectives must be:
    • realistic to the patient/client
    • able to be achieved in a "reasonable" amount of time
    • objective
  12. Example of LTG
    to return to an independent living situation, pt.
  13. example of STG
    while performing a stand pivor transfer, pt. will reach for bed or wheelchair before sitting with no verbal cues within 1 week

    daily goals that are met while progressing towar5ds the discharge goal

    you may have several STG's for each LTG
  14. STG
    will transfer independently and safely bed 5 wheelchair while wearing an orthotic foot support within 2 weeks.

    goals and objectives need to be modified as the client's progress is observed.

    goals and objectives should bne written to reflect your priority

    what needs to be done first!!
  15. Formulate a treatment/intervention plan(treatment planning process step 4)
    • you will choose:
    • the activity
    • the set-up

    • the role of the therapist in the activity
    • the expected outcome

    Professional judgement must be used when planning treatment.

    treatment must be appropriate

    • treatment must be safe
    • OT changes LTG
    • OTA changes STG

    • EX:
    • 1. approach-NTD, Biomechanical-theories
    • 2. principles-what I can do
    • 3. Methods-my way to do things
    • 4. decide what to do and how to do it
  16. treat the client-intervention
    (treatment Planning process step 5)
  17. reassess/re-evaluate
    (treatment planning process step 6)
    go back to interpret date and indentify problems

    • look at the performance of the client
    • look at the effectiveness of the activity
    • consider the strength and weaknesses of the client

    on going

    reassesment is done every time you see the client

    allows you to adjust the goals and the treatment activities
  18. Writing behavior objectives
    behavior objectives=STG

    a specific statement about a positive change in a skill which is expected occur within a short period of time

    all behavioral objectives MUST be OBSERVABLE and MEASURABLE!!!!!
  19. Behavior
