The OT Potential Club is an online journal club, dedicated to helping you keep up with influential OT research and trends.
Every Monday, we release an overview of one of the most-cited journal articles regarding OT. Whenever possible, we also include include tips for documentation, assessments, and treatments.
Are there prizes?
On Monday mornings, we also award $100 to the person who made the most helpful (most liked) comment on the previous week’s post!
(As the forum launches, I will be testing whether the cash prizes are liked and worthwhile. Please let me know below if you have any thoughts on this.)
Where did you find these articles?
I worked alongside a health sciences research librarian to identify which articles to feature in 2019. We settled on the top 50 articles from the past five years that fit the following criteria:
- The content included occupational therapy
- The works were cited most frequently by other articles.
One of the best ways to determine the reach and influence of a given article is by noting the number of times that article is cited by other articles. I know there are many great research articles that will not get covered this year, but at least this gives us a good starting point.
