Occupational therapy survey, 2009

How People Living with Parkinson's Disease in Four European Countries View Occupational Therapy
ENJ survey report

Because people with Parkinson’s (PwPs) experience diverse symptoms that impact heavily on many aspects of their daily life, occupational therapists play an important part in optimising independence, enhancing coping strategies and social participation.

As a result, the EPDA carried out an occupational therapy survey from 2008 to 2009. The survey evaluated the contribution occupational therapists make to the management of Parkinson’s on a daily basis.

The survey was translated into Norwegian, Swedish and Slovenian, and the results were published in the European Neurological Journal and can be downloaded here.
