Limited materials + no planning time + high productivity demands
Once upon a time I worked evenings and weekends as a PRN (per diem) clinician in skilled nursing, acute care and a tiny inpatient rehabilitation floor in the basement of the acute care hospital. Transitioning to providing treatment to an unfamiliar patient took time and had a learning curve. Sometimes the patient’s short term goals provided by the primary therapist were broad and planning time was non-existent.
I created this list of quick therapy ideas to be a reference tool of treatment tasks that don’t require much more than a few scraps of paper or a maybe a memory book. Most activities can be discussion-based and then are more flexible to use in functional situations.
I hope someone finds this useful – please leave a comment below if you have more ideas to share with others!
