  • 1. - ECOTROS - European Cooperation in Occupational Therapy Research (OTR) & Occupational Science (OS) A project initiated from the European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education (ENOTHE) ECOTROS list of Research Projects February 2008
  • 2. ECOTROS list of research projects Page - 2 - In this ECOTROS-Information, you will find information about ongoing research projects in occupational therapy research (OTR) and occupational science (OS) in Europe. Further inter- ested persons responsible for research projects are welcome to complete the ECOTROS Form “Research Projects” and they will be included in the list. Please note that for spam-protection, we replaced the § by §. You have to replace it again for using the e-mail-address. Research Projects in Occupational Therapy & Occupational Science - ECOTROS project survey November 2005 - This survey was carried out between November 2005 and February 2006. The ECOTROS project group were keen to identify occupational therapists and institutions who are undertak- ing research in each country in Europe. We know there is much going on that we have not heard about yet. The ECOTROS contact person in each country was asked to collect as much of this data as possible from research-active occupational therapists in his/her country, using a questionnaire. Now we have this data it should help greatly in many ways. For example, en- abling collaborative research bids; identifying possible PhD supervisors; forming support groups for active researchers. The aims of this survey were to • identify occupational therapists undertaking research in Europe; their place of work and their qualifications; • identify the research projects being undertaken, at present, by these occupational ther- apists. The data is only from occupational therapists undertaking Masters, PhD or post-graduate re- search and all have agreed to their details being included in the public domain. The data has been collated by country and the ECOTROS group is very grateful to those oc- cupational therapists who contributed information. Some of this data is from non-ECOTROS members so we do now have a broader view of the research being undertaken. Up to date, we unfortunately cannot provide a database with a keyword search function. But at the beginning, you will find a table with names, country and not more than five keywords out of a list of 23 keywords. When you have found an interesting topic within this table, you may look downwards for more information via the name using the conventional word search function. List of keywords: (1) Environment: Community based (including home) – Hospital based – School based – Work based (2) Professional Issues: Assessment – Carers – Health Promotion – OT Interventions – OT/OS theory & philosophy – Outcome measures – Physical environment & assistive techno- logy – Professional development – Professional education – Social environment (3) Users: Children – Healthy subjects – Learning disabilities – Mental health problems – Musculoskeletal disorders – Neurological disorders – Older people – Pain – Palliative care

Psychosocial rehabilitation at senior centres for persons with mild to moderate stroke. A Randomized Controlled Trial. Responsible person Anne Lund (name, address, website) Ullevaal University Hospital Department of Geriatric Medicine The University Section 0407 Oslo Norway Phone: +47 22 11 87 18 or +47 22 45 28 52 Academic level PhD student E-mail address Anne.Lund§hf.hio.no Country Norway Description by keywords Community based – Health Promotion – OT Interventions – Neurological disorders – Older people Summary (< 500 words) Stroke is a common disease among older people. In Norway 60-70 000 people live with se- quele after stroke. Depressive symptoms, anxiety, social isolation are occurring among 20 to 60 percent. Little is known about intervention for people with mild neurological symptoms who simultaneously perceive social isolation, depression and reduced satisfaction in their daily life after stroke. Lifestyle redesign (LR) is developed in USA and is a health promoting intervention programme in groups with focus on the participants’ exchange of experiences and involvement, which might be a potential intervention for these. The study is aiming to evaluate the effect on thriving, activity and social participation of the LR-program for home- living persons with stroke. The study is carried through as a multicentre randomized con- trolled trial. Participants are recruited from 4 different hospitals and the intervention is carried through at six to seven senior centres. The control group is offered physical activity group at the senior centre once a week The intervention group is offered the same with addition of the Lifestyle Redesign programme also once a week. The study will contribute to knowledge whether the LR-program will promote social participation and thriving in daily life and prevent social isolation and depressive symptoms among home living with stroke. The study will also create knowledge of collaboration between senior centres and hospitals.

The translation has been approved by S. Wolf, author of this test. The investigation concerns the intra- and interrater-reliability for two parts of the WMFT: 1) timing, the speed at which functional task can be completed and 2) function- al ability, the movement quality when completing the task. The external reference for the cri- terion validity is the motor subscale for upper limb of the Fugl Meyer Assessment estimation. The third part of the WMFT, evaluation of strength will not be included in this validation pro- cess. The definition of the MIC (Minimal Important Change) will complete the investigation of the psychometric properties of the translated test. The aim is to offer rehabilitation therapists a validated tool for clinical and research purposes.

Funded by the University Hospital Freiburg and the German OT Association. Introduction: The Occupational Therapy Assessment (OTA) measures occupational per- formance in (1) self-care, (2) independent living, (3) work-related basic activities, and the im- pact of (4) sensori-motor, (5) cognitive and (6) psychosocial functions on occupational per- formance. Seven studies with n = 1,452 participants were conducted from 1998 to 2006. Cur- rently, about 500 therapists use the OTA in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Objective: to present study results and to discuss the potential of the OTA on European

Methods: Study I was a multi-centre feasibility study; study II a tri-national validation study; study III a feasibility and validation study on the domain “work-related basic activities”; study IV a feasibility study on the OTA-related and self-administered “Questionnaire of Daily Occu- pation”. Studies I to III were cohort studies with two measure time points pre and post routine treatment. Validation studies compared OTA data with standardised instruments or expert ratings and analysed data on reliability and responsiveness. Feasibility was investigated by semi-structured questionnaires completed by the therapists (study I) or the participants (study IV). Sub-group analyses were performed on different age groups (study V) and service stages (Study VI) by conventional test statistics and on disability by Rasch-analysis (study VII). Results: Users rated the feasibility and acceptance of the instruments as good. Psychomet- ric properties were moderate to excellent. Conclusion: The studies suggest robust evidence for the clinical and psychometric quality of the OTA in German-speaking countries. Translation and transfer to other European countries seems to be appropriate. Date of entrance/update 2007-Nov-6 Project title 1.

This study aims therefore: To explore and understand the experiences of ageing couples of the changing of their everyday activities. The study uses as theoretical framework social gerontology and in particular life course theory and social constructionism and uses an occupational perspective. Thereby this study aims at contributing to our understanding of the concept of occupation from a (micro) social perspective, and with that is contributing to the body of knowledge in occupational science. Couples of which one of the partners has an increase in functional limitations (as meas- ured in the context of the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam) will be interviewed jointly and individual three times in two years. Data analysis will follow a narrative approach. Date of entrance/update 2009-February-2 Project title A University where education, research and citizenship flow Responsible person Salvador Simó Algado (name, address, website) University of Vic Sagrada Familia 7 08500 Vic Spain http://www.uvic.cat/eucs/recerca/ca/ocupacio.html Academic level PhD student E-mail address salvador.simo§uvic.cat Country Spain Description by keywords Community based – OT Interventions – Social environment – Mental health problems Summary (< 500 words) This research has been based on the project Miquel Martí i Pol, which has consisted on the creation and maintenance of a garden dedicated to the memory of the poet, with socially ex- cluded clients (for mental illness, immigration or poverty reasons) and students of occupa- tional therapy from the Universitat de Vic. The project has been a unique partnership between Universitat de Vic and public, social and economic institutions. There was a lack of knowledge about the therapeutic impact of gardening, as Sempik et al. stated in 2003. This research generates knowledge about human occupation, citizenship, inclusive communities, partnerships and new educational praxis in the framework of the new European Space of Higher Education. The theoretical frame was based on a trans-disciplinary vision, from the fields of education, philosophy, psychology, sociology, occupational therapy, politics, ecology and anthropology. The research was inspired by participatory action research, and has stud- ied in depth the meaning that this experience has had for the people involved in the process of creating the garden: the people coming from groups in situation of exclusion, the students, as well as the representatives of the public, social and economic institutions and Universitat de Vic. A series of in-depth interviews were completed by 5 gardeners; 2 students; the officer Responsible for Social Action from Vic City Council; the officer Responsible for Social Action from Osona Local Government; the President of Caritas; the occupational therapist of Fun- dació Centre Mèdic Psicopedagògic d'Osona; the Rector of Universitat de Vic; the Director of the Health Sciences University School and the President of Rotary. The topics that have aris- en in the research are: the construction of meaningful occupation; gardening as source of well-being; a space of beauty; dignity of citizenship; creation of inclusive communities; a Uni- versity at Humanity’s service: new educational praxis; the art of partnership. The knowledge generated has connections with the studies of occupational therapy, as well as social educa- tion, social work, infirmary, psychology and environmental sciences. The resulting work re- ceived unanimous outstanding merit marks from the assessing panel.
