Living actively in the face of impending death: constantly adjusting to bodily decline at the end-of-life

Living actively in the face of impending death: constantly adjusting to bodily decline at the end-of-life | terapia ocupacional | Scoop.it
Context People with advanced cancer experience bodily change resulting in debilitating functional decline. Although inability to participate in everyday activities (occupation) contributes to profound suffering, limited research has examined the relationship between altered bodily experience (embodiment) and functional ability.

Objectives The purpose of this study was to better understand the lived experience of functional decline for people with advanced cancer living at home.

Methods Indepth interviews were conducted with 10 community dwelling people with advanced cancer about their bodily experiences of functional decline. This study employed a pragmatic qualitative approach, informed by hermeneutic phenomenology.

Results People described living with rapidly disintegrating bodies and how this affected their ability to participate in everyday activities. Analysis identified themes which were evaluated against conceptual frameworks of ‘occupation’ and ‘embodiment’. People experienced a shifting sense of self. They had to continuously reinterpret changing bodies. Previously automatic movements became disjointed and effortful. Simple actions like standing or getting out of bed required increasing concentration. Relentless bodily breakdown disrupted peoples’ relationship with time, hindering their ability, but not their desire, to participate in everyday activities. Contending with this deterioration is the work of adaptation to functional decline at the end-of-life.

Conclusions This study highlights the role active participation in everyday activities plays in mediating adjustment to functional decline. These findings challenge us to look beyond palliation of physical symptoms and psychospiritual care as ends in themselves. Symptom control and palliation should be viewed as mechanisms to optimise active participation in essential and valued activities.

Adults Are Realizing That Coloring Isn't Just For Kids, And It's Improving Their Health | terapia ocupacional | Scoop.it
Coloring generates wellness, quietness, and stimulates brain activity related to motor skills, the senses and creativity. But as we grow older, we put down the crayons because coloring is a children's activity.

Enrique Henny's insight:

¿Terapia Ocupacional? Pienso que la idea es pertinente a muchos aspectos del quehacer humano también. Por lo pronto es evidente la posible intencionalidad de este pez al cual se le han agregado ciertas consecuencias visuales y de movimiento (vestibulares y táctiles)  por medio del registro de sus propios movimientos (propiocepción). El técnico que presenta el video habla de un uso "gracioso" (fun) de la tecnología. Creo que revela mucho más de lo que pretende..

Enrique Henny's insight:

Me gustó que esta noticia me llegar por vía de un blog que señala en su encabezado "su fuente para el discurso feminista"!

Nuevo aspecto, nuevo significado. ¿han visto el nuevo icono para la discapacidad?

1) La cabeza va hacia adelante para indicar un movimiento de avance en el espacio. Aqui la persona se releva como la dueña de su movilidad.
2) El brazo apunta hacia atrás sugiriendo el movimiento dinámico del usuario de la silla, independiente de si usa o no sus brazos. El hecho de señalar el cuerpo en movimiento representa simbolicamente el estatus activo de navegar el mundo.
3) La inclusión de espacios angulados en la rueda simboliza el movimiento de la rueda. Y también sirven para la creación de estenciles que se pintan con pintura en aerosol. El tener una sola versión del logo mantiene una mayor uniformidad y permite a los observadores entender más claramente el mensaje.
4) El dibujo de la figura humana en este ícono es coherente con otras representaciones del cuerpo que se hayan en la norma ISO 7001 - DOT Pictograms. El uso de un retrato diferente del cuerpo humano podría colisionar con esos iconos ya ampliamente utilizados y podría llevar a la confusión.
5) La pierna se ha movido hacia adelante para dejar más espacio entre esta y la rueda, con lo que se consigue una mejor lectura y un ícono más facilmente reproducible con stencil.

Traducción: Enrique Henny

A number of recent books have lauded the connection between walking and thinking. But are people losing their love of the purposeless walk?

La ocupación que se realiza al caminar. 

"La gente debería salir y caminar libre de distracciones, dice Nicholson. "Yo creo que hay algo acerca de caminar conscientemente. Para realmente estar ahí y en el momento; y concentrarse en lo que se está haciendo." Esto significa que no hay música, no hay podcasts, ni audiolibros. Y también podría significar salir solo." mi traducción.

Motor skill deficiencies linked to autism severity, reseearch says

Motor skill deficiencies linked to autism severity, reseearch says | terapia ocupacional | Scoop.it
A relationship between motor skill deficiencies and the severity of the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder has been found in very young children. The findings indicate that development of motor skills should be included in treatment plans for young children with autism. Most autism treatment plans for young children focus on social communication because the disability has such a significant effect in that area. Incorporating fine and gross motor skill development into early interventions could provide a similar boost, the researchers say.
