 This study examined the effectiveness of an “activity diary” for occupational therapy practice among pain, psychological factors and activity levels after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in non-randomized trials. TKA patients were classified into a control group (15) and a diary group (15). The outcome indices were measured using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) for pain, pain catastrophizing, anxiety and depression, and activity levels and were analyzed post hoc. Comments on activity diaries were analyzed by the KJ method. Results from the COPM indicate a significant improvement in anxiety and activity levels, while the KJ method similarly revealed a shift from OT “pain” to OT “accomplishment” at the end. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the “activities diary” for occupational therapy practice after TKA.
