 In task-oriented training (i.e., shaping and task practice approaches) for acute stroke patients, clearly defined roles exist for the primary occupational therapist (OT) and ward placement OT. The ward placement OT provides task practice in the patient's hospital room, whereas the primary OT provides shaping practice in a rehabilitation setting. Taken together, these two roles may improve the affected upper extremity function and use in everyday activities for acute stroke patients. In addition, this type of collaboration may lead to the effective transfer of positive patient outcomes from the rehabilitation setting into the real world.
