The Occupational Self Assessment-Short Form (OSA-SF) is a fairly new assessment and we would like to learn more about how it is utilized in acute care settings from clinicians and students. We are looking for OTs in the acute care hospitals who are willing to use the OSA-SF. After using the OSA-SF in your practice setting, there are several questions about the usefulness of it and it should take about 10-20 minutes.
