Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines for Home Modifications accepted to NGC website

Carol Siebert, MS, OTR/L FAOTA, Stacy Smallfield, DrOT, MSOT ‘96, OTR/L, and Susy Stark, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA (pictured right), have authored a publication titled, “Occupational Therapy Practice Guidelines for Home Modifications.” In September, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) submitted the publication to the National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC) and it has been accepted for inclusion on the Clearinghouse website.

The NGC is a public resource for evidence-based clinical practice guidelines. Their mission is to provide physicians and other health professionals, health care providers, health plans, integrated delivery systems, purchasers, and others an accessible mechanism for obtaining objective, detailed information on clinical practice guidelines and to further their dissemination, implementation, and use.

This home modification guideline was based on the systematic review conducted by Stark and her Participation, Environment and Performance Laboratory in 2012 and on a series of articles published by Stark and her current and former students in the program.
