“T” is for teamwork!
Teamwork is essential for best occupational therapy practice. OTs commonly work with physical therapists, speech therapists, social workers, nurses, and family members/friends for optimal treatment! Each member of a client’s team has an important role in their return to function, potential discharge, or development; therefore, teamwork is a requirement! With this in mind, it is also important that each member of the team communicates adequately and everyone is on the same page when working with a client. Like they say, teamwork makes the dreamwork.
