Furthermore, I wonder also about how OTs can contribute to enable clients to participate fully in their everyday life. In regard to my research, I am particularly keen on institutional ethnography. In reference to my area of expertise, my focus is mainly on people with chronic health conditions such as arthritis. I am Austrian, and currently enrolled as a PhD student at The University of Western Ontario in Canada.

Such assessments are fundamental to decision making, determination of patient progress, and evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment. There is currently no standardized, or universally accepted, evaluation battery for hand therapy. While instruments to assess body functions and body structures, such as the goniometer or dynamometer, are widely used in clinical practice, there is no consensus on appropriate instruments to assess activity limitations and participation restrictions in patients with hand function problems. For these reasons, we extensively reviewed instruments to assess activity limitations (according to the definition of the ICF) in persons with hand disorders and their application within the clinical reasoning process, to prepare a (preliminary) core-set of instruments. We selected 23 instruments. In the current study, we systematically reviewed the literature on the clinimetric properties of these 23 instruments for assessing activity limitations, to evaluate the clinimetric quality of the instruments.  Ven van de -Stevens L, Munneke M, Terwee CB, Spauwen PHM, Linde van der H.
