Case Study: Cardiac Disorders and Occupational Therapy
By Ann Jadin
In this interactive object, learners identify the risk factors and the precautions to follow when treating a patient with a cardiac condition. They also design a treatment plan for that patient.
In this interactive object, learners examine the characteristics of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis. Students then describe the precautions to be aware of when working with clients who have arthritis and identify assistive devices that clients might use to prevent injuries at home.
