    Abstract

    A framework for emerging assistive technology to improve occupational performance for adults with cognitive difficultiesCOTEC-ENOTHE2016 Rachael McDonald1, Jacqueline Casey21 School of Occupational Therapy, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, Department of Occupational Therapy, rachael.mcdonald@monash.edu, 2University of Ulster, Jordanstown, jcasey2@ulster.ac.uk Word Limit: 250. Purpose; This workshop will provide a model and practical strategies around the use, provision and advocacy of emerging assistive technologies. Rationale; The emergence of new technologies provides enormous potential to support participation in the occupations of daily life, however there is inconsistency between models of provision of assistive technology, and low quality of evidence (Elsaesser and Bauer, 2011). Furthermore, AT is so rapidly developing that the workforce is often unprepared (Lewis et al., 2012). There are mechanisms proposed to improve this situation, such as directions for clear and directed assessment and prescription information and improving workforce capacity. Objectives:1. To present a summary of literature into the effectiveness of emerging assistive technology 2. To propose a model for assessment and provision of assistive technology 3. To explore the potential for emerging assistive technology, together with proposals for outcome measurement. Format: This is an interactive workshop where information is presented and examples are worked through by and with participants. Maximum number of participants: The maximum number of participants is 35.Brief description of intended participants:This workshop would be suitable for people who work with adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities.References ELSAESSER, L.-J. & BAUER, S.
