Focus on Collect Once Use many Times is essential and increasing in healthcare including occupational- and physical therapy. However, poor data quality and documentation praxis challenges this regime and compromises data reuse for quality assurance and research. Participatory Action Research (PAR) was applied to improve documentation praxis in a municipal therapeutic unit hence improve data quality. The method was validated through semi-structured interviews and findings revealed following barriers a) contextual practicalities, b) contradictions between professional experience and evidence and c) low involvement from organization managers. In conclusion, the implementation of new documentation praxis using PAR is relevant; however, successful implementation requires time and several loops of intervention
