In spring of 2020, telepractice exploded in the U.S. when health professionals needed to socially distance from their patients in order to deliver care. How did they adapt? What advantages did they realize and what barriers did they overcome? Amanda and Rachel interviewed Amy Lamont, current occupational therapist and MGH IHP alum, about her qualitative study exploring the experience of OTs using telepractice to work with low vision clients.
While many of us were safe at home in 2020, the staff on the 4th floor of Spaulding Hospital Cambridge were volunteering to care for Covid-19 patients.

For her capstone project, Pauline interviewed her staff about their experiences working through the pandemic.
