Occupational Therapy Research Areas and Disciplines

Since many older adults experience barriers to daily living, many researchers are examining issues specific to an aging population. They are addressing issues with continuing care, improving current policies and services, stroke rehabilitation, and dementia care. See the articles on geriatrics and dementia studies for more information.

Researchers are also studying chronic conditions and disabilities that many people experience. This includes studies into conditions such as arthritis, HIV, chronic pain, and spinal cord injuries. Researchers are developing better strategies for clients to manage their lives, as well as improving the health and social systems needed to support individuals to self-manage their chronic conditions.

Other researchers are working to encourage physical activity in an increasingly obese Western population. This includes addressing the role of self-regulation in the initiation and maintenance of exercise behavior. Concerning consequences, much work focuses on understanding the psychosocial benefits of physical activity, for example the benefits of exercise on public body image, getting a job, interpersonal interactions, and family life.

OT research also addresses the challenges and limitations that injured workers experience at and after returning to work. A common focus is measuring and understanding the biologic, personal, work, and environmental factors that contribute to work outcomes. Other topics under investigation include strategies for prevention, gender issues in work disability, and management of work-related disability. Study designs include cohort studies.
