Tompson, Margaret-Ann Michelle; Ryan, Alan G.
Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, v63 n3 p173-82 Aug 1996
Interviews, observations, and journal analysis of four occupational therapy students in fieldwork placements identified four influences: therapist, environment, clients, and time. The role of onsite therapists was crucial in early fieldwork. A medical focus tended to split practice with clients with physical disabilities from those with psychosocial dysfunction. Pacing had an important impact on fieldwork. (SK)
