Case Scenario: Crossing the Line? Managing Personal and Professional Interests
Saul is an occupational therapist (OT) who's started a private practice in home care. His spouse, Neil, owns a health care supply store.

Saul’s client Soji needs several assistive devices, but is concerned about the cost of the devices. Out of concern, Saul arranges for Soji to receive a discount at Neil’s store. Soji agrees to buy the devices if the discount will be applied.

Has Saul put himself in a conflict of interest? View the discussion
Q&A: Clients and Cannabis
You asked us: What should I do if a client shows up for an occupational therapy appointment and they are under the influence of cannabis?

Q&A: Documentation in a Group Setting

You asked us: How should I complete my documentation when I'm providing occupational therapy services in a group setting?
