Conceptual frameworks : a response to the identity quest of occupational therapists

Summary :

How can we currently define occupational therapy ? There presently exists a wide area of OT practice and this in itself can have an impact on the professional identity of OTs. Since 2010, conceptual frameworks are taught in OT schools. They provide evaluation tools to professionals. These tools allow them to carry out their practice within an evidence-based framework.
Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five OTs with varied profiles in order to study the link between these evaluation tools and occupational therapists’ professional identity, through vocational perceptions.
Results have shown benefits in patient collaboration during therapy, and also interprofessional collaboration. Furthermore, specific vocabulary used in conceptual frameworks seems to facilitate communication in relation to OT. In that way, occupational therapy practice has become more meaningful and the professional identity of OTs has been strengthened.
Therefore, compared to Quebec practice, we could wonder about a systematic use of conceptual frameworks in our practices, related to the creation of a French professional college.
