Occupational therapy based on Canadian Model of Occupational Performance and Engagement in rehabilitation process in patient with rheumatoid arthritis

Open access


Introduction: The article introduces the fundamental principles of the Canadian Model of Occupational Performance and Engagement (CMOP-E) and the Canadian Practice Process Framework (CPPF).

Case study: The model specifies and describes the main areas of interest of occupational therapists ‒ the person, the occupation and environment, and mutual relations and interdependencies between these components. It takes into consideration not only the aspect the occupation being performed by the patient, but also the significance of the patient’s involvement in the activity performed. The Canadian model is based on the model of client-centred practice.

Summary: Apart from the elaboration on the theoretical principles of the CPPF-based therapeutic process, this paper also presents an example of the practical application of this model involving work with a rheumatoid patient.
