Occupational therapists experience of prescribing cognitive assistive technology for adults with ADHD (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe occupational therapists’ experience of prescribing cognitive assistive technology for adults with ADHD. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight occupational therapists who worked in a region in central Sweden. A qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the data and resulted in four categories; Interview the client regarding their daily activities to assess their needs of cognitive assistive technology, the importance of adapting strategies based on the client’s abilities, the importance of client participation and individualized routines to follow-up cognitive assistive technology. The results showed that occupational therapists used different approaches to assess the client's daily activities prior to prescribing cognitive assistive technology. An important approach was to customize strategies based on the client's prerequisites and to promote its motivation and participation. Furthermore, the result showed that prescribing cognitive assistive technology is a time-consuming process.
