In: CANADIAN JOURNAL OF OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY 2019 ABR;86(2):136-147Summary: Background. Acute hospitalization of older adults can lead to deconditioning and the need for rehabilitation to facilitate a return to home and previous lifestyle. An occupational therapy intervention to combat deconditioning is activity pacing, an active self-management strategy where individuals learn to modify how and when activities are completed with the aim of improving participation in occupation. Purpose. This study will examine the effectiveness of occupational therapy with activity pacing during rehabilitation for deconditioned older adults. Method. A randomized controlled trial is proposed with inclusion criteria of older adults, 65+ years old, living independently in the community prior to admission, with adequate cognition and language to participate in the intervention. Participation, health status, self-efficacy in daily activities, self-efficacy in activity pacing techniques, and symptom management (pain and fatigue) will be measured at admission, discharge, and 3 months postdischarge. Implications. Determining if an activity-pacing program is effective will provide occupational therapists with evidence to support service delivery.

Background.
Acute hospitalization of older adults can lead to deconditioning and the need for rehabilitation to facilitate a return to home and previous lifestyle. An occupational therapy intervention to combat deconditioning is activity pacing, an active self-management strategy where individuals learn to modify how and when activities are completed with the aim of improving participation in occupation.

Purpose.
This study will examine the effectiveness of occupational therapy with activity pacing during rehabilitation for deconditioned older adults.

Method.
A randomized controlled trial is proposed with inclusion criteria of older adults, 65+ years old, living independently in the community prior to admission, with adequate cognition and language to participate in the intervention. Participation, health status, self-efficacy in daily activities, self-efficacy in activity pacing techniques, and symptom management (pain and fatigue) will be measured at admission, discharge, and 3 months postdischarge.

Implications.
Determining if an activity-pacing program is effective will provide occupational therapists with evidence to support service delivery.
