Occupational Therapy


The purpose of this paper was to review the literature for evidence that circadian rhythms have an effect on productivity. The literature review included relevant research in the areas of human occupation, the development of time conceptually, performance, morning type - evening type, temporal isolation, and shift work. The implications for occupational therapy were in the areas of treatment performance of clients, hospital and other occupational therapy setting schedules, and therapists' circadian rhythms.
