The aim of this literature review was to review and describe occupational therapy interventions and the impact of these in individuals aged 18-65 years with a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Data collection was done through scientific databases. The collected data were analyzed by support of occupational therapy practice models for interventions. The results are presented in three parts, interventions, assessment instruments, and the impact of the interventions. The results of this study show that the most common interventions performed for individuals with rheumatoid arthritis are compensatory interventions and interventions for enhancement of person factors and body functions. The result shows that assessments are conducted with individuals who have rheumatoid arthritis often measures the individual's subjective experiences on the level of activity while assessments carried out on the level of functioning in most cases are objective evaluations made by the occupational therapist. The study also shows that most of the studied interventions have had a good effect on the individual's ability to perform activities. The author suggests that more research is needed about occupational skills training impact individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, which can be a basis for future research.
