          Abstract

          Occupational home visits for older adults are a standard part of the discharge process within the NHS. However, there is limited research on the efficacy of this practice (Atwal et al 2012) or on alternative approaches, including the use of technology, for carrying out this intervention more effectively. Home visits typically involve a short visit with the patient to their home to assess their ability to perform usual everyday tasks. Consequently, the practitioner proposes recommendations for adaptations to the patient’s home and for the provision of specialist assistive equipment such as bed hoists, support rails, shower seats and grab rails and so forth.

          ICT and OTs: a model of information and communication technology acceptance and utilisation by occupational therapists.

          There is evidence to suggest that health professionals are reluctant to accept and utilise information and communication technologies (ICT) and concern is growing within health informatics research that this is contributing to the lag in adoption and utilisation of ICT across the health sector. Technology acceptance research within the field of information systems has been limited in its application to health and there is a concurrent need to develop and gain empirical support for models of technology acceptance within health and to examine acceptance and utilisation issues amongst health professionals to improve the success of information system implementation in this arena. This paper outlines a project that examines ICT acceptance and utilisation by Australian occupational therapists. It describes the theoretical basis behind the development of a research model and the methodology being employed to empirically validate the model using substantial quantitative, qualitative and longitudinal data. Preliminary results from Phase II of the study are presented. The theoretical significance of this work is that it uses a thoroughly constructed research model, with potentially the largest sample size ever tested, to extend technology acceptance research into the health sector.

            Older adults and carers' perceptions of pre-discharge occupational therapy home visits in acute care.

            pre-discharge occupational therapy (OT) home visits are an integral part of the discharge process for older adults in acute care. There is limited quality research demonstrating that these pre-discharge visits enhance the health and well being of older adults. This paper outlines the perceptions of older adults and carers of the home visit process from the exploratory phase of an ongoing research project.
