Webinar Series:

This webinar is the third in a series.  The first webinar, "Occupational Therapy's Role in Medication Management & Adherence and Evaluating Medication Management in Occupational Therapy," is not a prerequisite for participation in this webinar.

Ensuring adherence to prescribed medications is vital for maintaining optimal health and functionality, yet up to 50% of occupational therapy practitioners may not routinely incorporate medication management interventions into their practice.

This webinar addresses this gap by providing occupational therapy practitioners with the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate medication management interventions effectively.

Participants will gain insights into evidence-based intervention techniques tailored to the unique needs of their clients. Through a comprehensive overview, attendees will learn to develop personalized intervention plans aligned with clients' abilities, goals, and the dynamics of their practice settings.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be equipped with practical strategies to confidently incorporate medication management interventions into their occupational therapy practice, ultimately enhancing client outcomes and promoting overall well-being.

Join us in advancing your clinical skills and making a meaningful impact on the health and functionality of your clients.

Target Audience: Occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, occupational therapy students.

This occupational therapy continuing education course uses the following instructional methods: visual aides (ie slides), discussion board, guided note taking, and learning, and practice opportunities.
Content disclosure: This course does not exclusively focus on any specific product or service.
