The exact duties of senior occupational therapists may depend on the specific position, but these professionals generally provide occupational therapy services to patients. This includes an initial assessment and planning treatments, which can vary based on the severity of a case and the patient’s expected recovery time. Every step of the therapy process must be documented and carefully explained to all parties to ensure full understanding. These steps must also follow the standard practices for therapy, as well as policies and procedures set by their company and government regulators. As a senior-level position, there is generally minimal supervision, so senior occupational therapists must be able to work independently.
Senior occupational therapists work indoors, and travel is generally not required. Communications may include referrals to specialists and contact with other family members. There are generally minimal physical requirements necessary for the job, while work hours typically vary depending on the needs of the employer. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
