Occupational therapists are well positioned to support first responders and public safety personnel with the use of functional treatment approaches that emphasize coordinating the fit between the individual, their work responsibilities, and the workplace environment. Each episode features experienced OTs sharing their clinical reasoning, successes, and challenges when working with this important population. New episodes will be released each Tuesday starting May 10, 2022 on this page.
