dc.description.abstractMost physical rehabilitation services are not person-centered. Occupational therapy practitioners (OTPs) are vested in person-centered approaches, thereby they are optimally positioned to take leading roles in these quality improvement (QI) activities. Yet, there is a lack of OTPs-led QI activities on person-centered rehabilitation, and seminally, a lack of a QI guide informing these activities. To shape the evidence- and theory-based QI guide, we engaged a small international sample (n= 8) of potential end-users, i.e., OTPs in practice or management roles. The process involved three rounds of mixed-methods surveys, which helped in the design, refinement, and preliminary evaluation of the QI guide. Informed by theory, evidence and participants’ feedback, the final guide followed a “why, what, and how” structure. Six out of the eight participants rated the QI guide as one they are “very likely” to use. Also, the median rated value of the guide was “9” in a “0-10” scale. The QI was also well appraised by being an all-in-one resource to enable OTPs close the gap in person-centered rehabilitation practices and its improvement. The final version of the QI guide is ready to use and freely available in the Open Science Framework platform: http://osf.io/xzgpe/.en_US
