Background: Limited evidence is available to illustrate the use of theory to underpin occupational therapy practice in acute physical health care settings. Methods: A generic qualitative method investigated the views, knowledge and perceptions of seven Scottish occupational therapists about the potential usefulness of the Person-Environment-Occupation Model (PEO Model) in acute care. This convenience sample participated in two focus groups: the first to examine and understand the PEO Model and the second to explore further reflections of the strengths and limitations of its use in practice. Findings: The PEO Model has the potential to provide a meaningful framework in which to conceptualise patients in an acute physical health care setting. Conclusions: The PEO Model offers flexibility regarding the extent to which occupational performance is addressed, in a setting characterised by short hospital admission stays. Also, a range of occupation-focused models was valued to practise effectively in this setting.
