Empowering occupational therapy practitioners with a playbook of functional tasks to use with their geriatric clients



As an occupational therapist who has spent 10 years working in skilled nursing facilities, I’ve felt burnout occasionally. This year, as we’ve faced a global pandemic, I’ve noticed it increase exponentially among myself and my therapy team. I’ve also seen it among the other caregivers at my facility and almost everyone I’ve interacted with online. Using my occupational therapy and research skills, I started searching for answers myself. Eventually, I used my teaching skills to develop a course to help people like me and my team.
