Barriers and bridges to client-centred occupational therapy in Sweden
2004 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, Vol. 11, no 1, 12-16 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This study investigates barriers to client-centred practice and solutions to overcome these barriers as experienced by Swedish occupational therapists. A British questionnaire was translated into Swedish and completed by 97 occupational therapists. The questionnaire consists of three sections: background information, a list of barriers identified in a literature review, and a list of methods to resolve barriers. The results show that the highest ranked barrier was "the therapist does not know enough about client-centred practice". The highest ranked method to resolve barriers was "management and peer support for use of client-centred practice". Introducing client-centred practice takes time, commitment, education, training, interview skills, discussions with colleagues, and reflection on the therapists' own attitudes. © 2004 Taylor & Francis.
