Abstract

This paper discusses the current context of the UK mental health service system and the resulting need for program change within acute-care inpatient hospitals. The primary focus is to illustrate through practice example what can be done to support the delivery of client treatment packages by using the concepts described by the Model of Human Occupation (MOHO). The paper concentrates on explaining how MOHO has helped to guide program redesign and develop an Occupational Therapy Care Pathway to support occupation-focused services. The example given is of a hospital service in Gloucestershire, England, which provides inpatient care for people experiencing acute mental illness. © 2008 by Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.
