Occupational Therapists (OTs) often work with people living with chronic conditions.

They play an important role in providing self-management support, to achieve the person’s health goals through engaging in meaningful activities. This includes facilitating individuals to gain skills and confidence to live well with one or more chronic conditions. These skills may be generic or specific to the medical conditions that the person has.

Occupational Therapists support patients with chronic conditions in self-management, for example:

  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Heart conditions
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Low vision
  • Stroke
  • Mild memory problems
  • And other chronic conditions
