Summary :

Clinical writing in occupational therapy is a form of argumentative writing that requires competencies such as observation skills, discernment and a critical reflection into the evaluation process. The development of clinical documentation competencies is an important component of educating occupational therapy students. It is expected that students will develop their competencies and deploy them during their clinical placements in order to become independent and competent occupational therapists. It is pertinent to understand how autonomy regarding clinical writing is developing all along occupational therapy education, as well as knowing strategies used by students since they are important resources for competencies deployment. This article presents a review of the literature on the subject and the research results obtained from 42 undergraduate and graduate occupational therapy students describing perception of autonomy and strategies used to produce occupational therapy assessment reports. The results show that the strategies and their frequency are different for bachelor’s and master’s students. Master’s students sketch ideas before writing down an introduction statement and analysis, while bachelor’s students ask for written feedback from their clinical supervisor. The main perceived difficulties for both groups of participants are conciseness and analysis writing. This study provides a new perspective on the development of clinical writing competencies among occupational therapy students.
