Individuals with a spinal cord injury (SCI) are commonly discharged from outpatient occupational therapy (OT) services after working on functional impairments and not occupations that are meaningful. Without rehabilitation of meaningful occupations, quality of life (QOL) can be impacted. In community settings, OT services have more flexibility to work on more meaningful occupations because they are not limited by the billing constraints in traditional outpatient therapy clinics. This poster presents a scoping review looking at traditional rehabilitation interventions and compares them with non-traditional rehabilitation interventions and their impacts on quality of life.
