Occupational therapy helps those who have been injured or have a physical or mental disorder that may prevent them from performing certain activities. This therapy helps them to be able to carry out these tasks so they can work or simply improve their daily living experiences. Prior to carrying out any activities, patients must be assessed in order to determine plans for recovery. Occupational therapy managers usually oversee a team of therapists, so it is important to ensure that they are carrying out their duties in an appropriate and proficient manner.
It is essential that all staff members are adhering to safety protocols at all times. When discrepancies are noted, these managers may have to make on-the-spot corrections or organize a feedback meeting with the therapist. It may be necessary to delegate duties to occupational therapists and create schedules by assigning them to different patients and tasks. To be an occupational therapy manager, many years of experience are generally required, and applicants should also have graduated from an accredited school of occupational therapy and possess valid and current licensing with the state board.
