Occupational Therapists are expected to ensure the delivery of appropriate services to adults, children, young people and their families / carers, according to their assessed needs. This will include assessing the needs of disabled children and their carers against the Department’s agreed eligibility criteria and in accordance with National Performance Indicators within set timescales, as well as the creation and implementation of culturally appropriate care plans that demonstrate flexibility and innovative use of resources.
 
Occupational Therapists are also responsible for delivering good outcomes for disabled adults, children and young people through completing timely assessments, and developing and implementing effective care plans, including provision of equipment, postural seating and structural adaptations that safeguard vulnerable people. They should work within the legislative framework at all times, and in partnership with internal and external partners and agencies.
 
Occupational Therapists are expected to maintain and produce professional case records and reports which are structured, clear, evidence based and logical in accordance with the Department’s case recording standards and practice. In addition, they should make best use of the Department’s information systems, both using information from the relevant Registers and inputting new information as required in a timely and accurate manner.
