OT作业治疗简介

作者:管理员 本网 2014-03-17

作业治疗(occupational therapy,简称OT)是应用有目的的、经过选择的作业活动,对由于身体上、精神上、发育上有功能障碍或残疾,以致不同程度地丧失生活自理和劳动能力的患者,进行评价、治疗和训练的过程,是一种康复治疗方法。目的是使患者最大限度地恢复或提高独立生活和劳动能力,以使其能作为家庭和社会的一员过着有意义的生活。这种疗法对功能障碍患者的康复有重要价值,可帮助患者的功能障碍恢复,改变异常运动模式,提高生活自理能力,缩短其回归家庭和社会的过程。

 

2012年世界作业治疗师联盟(WFOT)最新定义为:

 

Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.(WFOT 2012)
