Welcome Home Project: Functional outcomes, perception of care and cost for children and youth receiving home and community-based occupational therapy services

This project is designed to examine how functional outcomes, perception of care and cost are each influenced by the service delivery characteristics of home care occupational therapy (OT). Although home care OT services are frequently utilized, the relative effect of service delivery utilization characteristics on functional outcomes and service delivery is not well understood.
