 Using Management Tool for Daily Life Performance (MTDLP), occupational therapy was carried out for an ALS patient with an attached respirator who wanted to take a bath in a normal bathtub which represented a meaningful activity. Incorporating a collaborative team of various professionals, the occupational therapist examined patient movements, developed assistance methods and adjusted the environment. Through minimum assistance by the team, achievement of actual bathing and satisfaction both improved. Due to utilizing MTDLP, successful collaborative occupational therapy was actualized, which led to improved patient QOL.
