Summary Bulletin: Environmental Assessment & Modification for Australian Occupational Therapists

Authors: Millikan, L.
Published: 30th July 2012
Audience: Industry, Librarians/Researchers/Students


The purpose of this summary bulletin is to look at the scope of environmental modification in Australia, the fundamental principles of environmental assessment and to document current resources for the Australian therapist.

Environmental modification is not a one size fits all approach, nor is there a ‘cookbook’ that can solve the challenges of the built environment for those with access and functional difficulties.

As a summary bulletin for the occupational therapy profession, this paper seeks to collate and summarise the information available to occupational therapists and occupational therapy students, provide a frame of reference, and be an easily accessible resource relevant to the Australian occupational therapist and their work.
