Elaine Stokoe OT
As palliative care is concentrating more on supporting patients in the community, the role of the OT in hospice & day care is expanding. By focussing on the analysis of activity and the concept of the patient’s ‘wellness’ the OT is able to improve quality of life through the promotion of abilities and addressing disabilities particularly with regard to self maintenance, productivity and leisure. (Cooper, 1997)
