The Shawnee State University’s Masters of Occupational Therapy Program presented at the Fourth International Institute on the Model of Human Occupation Conference on Oct. 23 and 24 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
MOT students, Kelsey Douglas, Clasey Hahn and Jason Roden, and Dr. Christine Raber presented their research titled, “Examining the Impact of Environment in Specialized Dementia Facilities: A Pilot Study.”
Over 140 attendees from 18 countries participated in the conference.
The Fourth International Institute aims to advance theory and evidence-based practice through showcasing the latest developments in Model of Human Occupation (MOHO) research, education and clinical application. The conference focused on four themes: collaborative partnerships, MOHO in broader perspective, international collaborations and teaching MOHO to support translation into practice. The conference sessions included short papers, symposia, roundtables and poster sessions.
“Having the opportunity to attend the conference as a student provided me with different perspectives and a better understanding of MOHO, as well as invaluable networking experience with recognized professionals around the world,” said Douglas.
The conference selected 77 abstracts from 15 different countries to create a dynamic and exciting program.
“It was very rewarding to see other people in our field producing amazing research and meeting people from all over the world who share the same ideas and passions as you,” said Hahn.
Dr. Christine Raber presented two additional sessions at the conference.
