Psychological Factors Predicting Functional Ability and Participation After Hip Fracture
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Optimism and hope played a role in explaining rehabilitation outcomes at 6-mo follow-up. Occupational therapy evaluation should address positive psychological factors, and intervention should aim to strengthen these factors as powerful aids in older adults' recovery from hip fractures. What This Article Adds: This study reflects the philosophy of occupational therapy, which places great emphasis on the connection between clients' mind-body-spirit and their participation in daily life occupations.PMID:35671502 | DOI:10.5014/ajot.2022.047365 (Source: The American Journal of Occupational Therapy)

Appraising Psychiatric Care From a Different Angle: Occupational Therapy Activities and Cardiorespiratory Fitness for Inpatients With Chronic Mental Illness
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Occupational therapists in psychiatric inpatient settings should prescribe individualized occupation-based or physical activities that meet the optimal daily energy expenditure for each client to improve their cardiorespiratory function. What This Article Adds: This study is one of the first attempts to explore cardiorespiratory fitness outcomes after daily occupational therapy activities for people with CMI. Physical benefits unfolded throughout psychiatric care, echoing the profession's stance on holistic practice.PMID:35671508 | DOI:10.5014/ajot.2022.049126 (Source: The American Journal of Occupational Therapy)

Development and Psychometric Testing of the Bimanual Assessment Measure for People With Chronic Stroke
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: The BAM is a valid, reliable measure for people with chronic stroke that identifies bimanual coordination deficits beyond unimanual impairments and the potential capacity for people to return to prestroke hand roles (i.e., as a manipulator). What This Article Adds: This article introduces the BAM as a new assessment measure of bimanual functioning with the potential capacity to restore prestroke hand roles as either a manipulator or a stabilizer among people with chronic stroke.PMID:35671509 | DOI:10.5014/ajot.2022.048995 (Source: The American Journal of Occupational Therapy)

Development and Initial Testing of the Electronic Activity Card Sort (ACS3) Among Community-Dwelling Adults
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Findings suggest that performance on the ACS3 is consistent with performance on the ACS. This finding coupled with a high level of acceptability indicates that the ACS3 may be a clinically useful tool for evaluating daily life participation. What This Article Adds: The ACS3 provides an electronic, paperless option for measuring multiple domains of participation in adults.PMID:35671503 | DOI:10.5014/ajot.2022.047522 (Source: The American Journal of Occupational Therapy)

Perceiving Therapeutic Communication: Client-Therapist Discrepancies
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: The findings suggest that clients and therapists may perceive therapeutic communication differently.
