The nature of disability depends on perspective. The traditional medical model views disability as a characteristic or attribute of the individual, where the disability is caused by disease, trauma, or another health condition and requires an intervention to correct or compensate for the problem. In contrast, the social model views disability as a socially created problem, not a personal attribute, resulting from an unaccommodating and inflexible social or physical environment. In this model, management of the problem requires social action, and it becomes the responsibility of society at large to modify the environment in a manner that allows those with disabilities to participate fully in all activities.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
