About The Event

Individuals with multiple chronic conditions must learn to manage their care while balancing their daily activities.  OT Lifestyle Redesign® informed interventions usher clients through this process.  In this workshop, participants will learn the principles of Lifestyle Redesign® and acquire tools to instill healthful routines and habits.  

How do we motivate individuals with chronic pain to get out of bed?  How do we guide clients in activities that are joyful and meaningful?  How can clients with complex medical conditions learn to manage their care most effectively?  In this workshop we will address such questions and more. 

This workshop will provide the participants with some hands on practice. Through guided activities, participants will learn how to empower clients to play an active role in promoting their personal health and well-being.  

PDUs offered:  6


At the end of the workshop the participant will be able to:

  1. Describe the efficacy of Occupational Therapy Lifestyle Redesign® (LR) informed interventions in addressing chronic complex medical conditions.
  2. Identify optimal client factors that influence LR outcomes. 
  3. Identify the unique characteristics of LR informed interventions, LR key ingredients, and how LR complements traditional OT.
