Experience of Client-centered Practice amongst Danish Occupational Therapists

Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalAbstractResearchpeer-review


A client-centered approach is on the health care agenda in many European countries (1), and amongst these Denmark (2). It is described as the foundation for Occupational Therapy (OT) (3), a code of professional conduct (4,5), and defined as a partnership between client and therapist (3). The goal is to empower a client to fulfil his/her occupational roles in a variety of environments, leading to an increase in intervention efficacy and client perception of intervention quality (3). However, it is known to be challenging (1,3). Given the importance of this approach, there has been limited exploration of OT experience in the field.
The aim of this project was to explore the experience of client-centred practice with Danish OTs and describe facilitators and challenges of a client-centred practice.
A survey with a representative sample of Danish OT practice is conducted, ending May 15th, and the results will be analysed with descriptive statistics. We will present the results and implications for future practice.
