Occupational therapists have a key role in providing holistic care and goal orientated rehabilitation to enable patients to manage daily activities after surgery. This may involve identifying practical strategies to manage everyday tasks, equipment provision and fatigue management. They have a key role to play in helping patients remain independent in personal and domestic activities of daily living such as washing, dressing and meal preparation. They may suggest new ways of doing things or recommend the use of special equipment after surgery. Support for leaving hospital will be discussed during admission and the occupational therapist can link with local community services to assess whether any adaptations or equipment are needed at home. In addition Occupational Therapists can support and advise on return to different aspects of life such as work or school, return to driving and return to caring responsibilities.
