Abstract

This forum will present a new approach to ensure the creation of knowledge of occupation that is relevant to the everyday practitioner. We will present a successful, developing model called practice-scholars, for both novice and expert practitioners, who embed research in everyday practice habits. Our evolving efforts are directed towards developing a new cadre of practitioners, called practice-scholars, who habitually engage in practice-relevant studies which focus on occupation as a central measure of their intervention outcomes. However, this approach is challenged by the available clinical evaluation tools relevant for studying occupation coupled with the time and resources practitioners have for practicescholar activities. This forum will overview our collected experiences with the practice-scholar approach, inviting others to join and critique this approach.
