OT and COTA collaboration: Both the registered occupational therapist (OT) and the certified occupational therapy assistant (COTA), should collaborate over the course of the client’s evaluation, treatment, and discharge. There is a hierarchy of supervision regarding an OT and a COTA, but nevertheless, both clinicians should have a professional team approach and partnership with the common core of serving the client. The team approach relationship should have sound partnership factors such as communication, trust, knowledge, and respect. Both clinicians would communicate clearly to one another of any client concerns, integration of activities within the intervention process, positive treatment outcomes, etc.
In addition to substandard housing, the Lakota have poor nutrition. The reservation is a food desert, where many tribal members do not have access to fresh produce and a nutritious diet. The Federal Commodity Food Program is active, but supplies mostly inappropriate foods that are high in carbohydrates, sugar, fat, and preservatives for the largely diabetic population of the reservation, which is eight times the U.S. rate. They also suffer from epidemic levels of cancer and heart disease. The Lakota have five times the rate of cervical cancer and rice the rate of heart disease. Life expectancy in Pine Ridge is 45 years old. The Sioux Nation, the only grocery store on the reservation, was caught selling spoiled food in 2012. Prices at the store are Healthy foods are so scare that the Lakota are in need of a revolution to reclaim food control. In response to the food crisis, Ota Au was created as an alternative. Ota Au is an independent Lakota non-profit organization with a vision of permaculture gardening, sustainable economy, renewable energy, and spiritual enlightenment. The first step of the strategy is to build a community garden on a family allotment in the foothills of Porcupine, South Dakota. Ota Au will provide fresh fruit and vegetables for at least 100 people, The rest of the food will be canned and used for wintertime feasts. Plans are to
New Jersey v. T.L.O. is an interesting case that took place in New Jersey around this area. In Piscataway High School, two girls were caught smoking cigarettes in the bathroom.

The consequences of undiagnosed and untreated OSA are medically serious and economically costly. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is considered the gold standard of treatment for OSA along with lifestyle modifications. With CPAP use, patients can reduce their healthcare utilization and save money by reducing the impact of OSA symptoms, comorbidities, and motor vehicle accidents. Direct costs associated with comorbidities include increased medical expenses, emergency room visits, hospital inpatient visits, medication use, and mortality rates (American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 2016).
The vice principal notified T.L.O'S mother and turned the evidence of drug dealing over to the police. They took T.L.O down to the police station where she admitted to selling marijuana on school property. T.L.O was charged as a juvenile with criminal activity, Based on T.L.O’s confession and all

Case Study Analysis: Tufts-NEMC Ellen Zane had her work cut out for her at Tufts-NEMC. The Tufts University affiliated teaching and research hospital had long been on the decline. It was mired in financial difficulty, was falling behind other teaching and research AMCs, and was not effectively serving its local community. Beginning on the day she accepted her position as CEO, Ellen Zane started on a path of reform. Upon learning that the hospital only had 10 months of cash on hand, she began brainstorming on how to make the hospital financially viable, starting by meeting payroll needs first. She discovered that Tufts-NEMC was being drastically underpaid and began looking for solutions to the problem of reimbursements. One of the more
#PW Should congregations be "open test grounds" for all those who are struggling with offenses against society (successful or works in progress)? My personal opinion is no. However, I believe that not on purpose or evil intent congregations can become "open test grounds". An old hymn states "Just as I am I come". Unless the church does a background investigation that reveals it, or the person says it, or someone with firsthand knowledge says it and the church verifies it how will the congregation know. Do congregations have a right to know the past (or current) sins of members and visitors? I do not believe a congregation has a right to know the past (or current) sins of members and visitors? I do not believe a congregation as a whole
The literature varies on the stability of OCPD traits over time. De Reus and Emmelkamp (2012) report that several different studies found significant variability in OCPD traits over a 12-month period. One consistency that does appear, however, is that a few of the characteristics of OCPD appear to be more consistent, and therefore more trait-like in nature, than others. The traits found to be more consistent are rigidity/stubbornness and problems delegating followed by a preoccupation with details. Other traits like miserliness and strict values were found to be less prevalent and most changeable of all of the characteristics. From these, it can be concluded that OCPD appears to be mixture of stable traits and featured behaviors that can change
Introduction During pregnancy, hormonal changes may considerably affect the skin of pregnant women. Itching is found especially Pruritus Gravidarum. Pruritus Gravidarum usually begins in the late second to early late trimester of pregnancy in two-third of cases. Pregnant women will first have an unpleasant feeling at the abdomen site and then it will spreads to the chest and distal of extremities. Systemic drugs such as H1-receptor antagonists, H2-receptor antagonists, ursodeoxycholic acid and cholestyramine are used to relive the symptoms. However, most pregnant women avoid to use these synthetic drugs because of their side effects. In Iran, peppermint is used as a traditional drug which has cooling and mild analgesic effects to decreases skin’s temperature. Study to determine the effects of peppermint oil on symptomatic pruritus treatment in pregnant women was done.

i am also in agreement with you that the key players in the scenario include the OTAS and the clinical supervisor. However, for question 2, the clinical supervisors is responsible for implementing intervention based on evaluation, client's factors, client goals and current evidence-based practice. Therefore, it is out of the OTAS scope of practice to suggest a different treatment plan for Mr. Jones. Moreover, I also agreed with you that it is important that the OTAS understand why Mr. Jones is receiving OT services to get a clear picture of the clinical supervisor reasoning of the number of units and days for therapy sessions. The consequences of not taking action may not only result into more harm to Mr. Jones but it will also jeopardize the
