Title: Occupational therapy treatment time during inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation: A retrospective study in Riyadh
Occupational therapy (OT) is a part of the rehabilitation process which facilitates and enables individuals with traumatic spinal cord injuries (TSCI) to be independent as possible in activity of daily living (ADLs).
Little is known about the OT treatment plan and the duration of the selected treatment intervention during TSCI rehabilitation.
This study aims to describe the duration of OT treatment that patients with TSCI received during their inpatient rehabilitation stay.
A retrospective chart review study of spinal cord injury patients who attended in-patient rehabilitation.
The study was conducted at King Abdulaziz Medical Center in Riyadh between January 2016 to December 2020.
The age group of 15 years old and above.
Significant variations were seen in time spent among TSCI for all OT interventions when examining both total times spent and a calculated number of minutes per session. Some of this variation could be explained by patient and injury characteristics. Further research could also be conducted to determine the effectiveness of OT interventions with TSCI patients in ICU.
