Abstract

Jackie Eagers studied the scope of practice of occupational therapy in the work-to-retirement transition in Australia. She found current occupational therapy scope of practice is limited, often occurring through the course of other work. A framework to guide future application of occupational therapy practice in the work-to-retirement transition is provided.
