Abstract [en]

The ubiquitousness of digital technology in everyday life has resulted in emerging roles for occupational therapists. However, many occupational therapists do not take on the challenge of exploring clients’ use of digital technology in daily occupations. Apart from the likelihood of experiencing organizations’ allocation of resources to prioritized outcomes as a restrictive factor, occupational therapists’ own knowledge of and experiences with digital technology limit them from probing issues that they think they cannot deal with themselves. The objective of the presentation is to introduce digital literacy in the approach to assessing engagement in occupations involving digital technology and to identify competencies that are already present in the occupational therapists’ toolbox that can assist in assessment.  The intention of the presentation is to inspire the audience to become more open to exploring occupational issues involving digital technology with clients.

Abstract [en]

Promoting social participation among older adults requires creating opportunities for meaningful social roles and reciprocal relationships. To facilitate this, it is important to understand the impact of environmental factors on older adults’ engagement in social activities. Digital technology has proved to be a useful tool in engagement in many social activities. In promoting social participation through digital technology, it also becomes important to understand how access to services and systems through digital technologies can be improved.

The aim of the study is to identify environmental factors that older adults perceive as relevant in their occupational engagement in order to promote social participation mediated by digital technology. Participants in this study were recruited through purposive sampling of older adults 65 years or older who were interested in contributing to the development of Internet-based services in rural municipalities in Northern Sweden. Focus group interviews and qualitative content analysis were methods used to gather and analyze the data for this study.

This study is intended to expand the knowledge base on environmental factors surrounding social participation, more specifically those factors which older adults perceive can impact their current and desired social activities. The results from this study will be utilized in the planning of digital technology-mediated services in the community.

Abstract [en]

Facets of participation have changed with the growing pervasiveness of digital technology in daily life. To enable older adults as active participants in an evolving digital society, it is relevant to examine how they engage in and situate digital technology-mediated occupations in daily life. Narrative inquiry was used to elucidate features in older adults’ engagement in occupations involving digital technology situated in everyday life. Analysis was based on data gathered through concurrent think aloud protocol and observations from 10 older adults in Northern Sweden. In line with narrative analysis, findings were presented as three stories about negotiating needs and values while interacting with the technological and social environments, entitled playing by the rules, being on the same wavelength, and calling the shots. Looking at these stories with an occupational lens resulted in an understanding that older adults’ participation involving digital technology likewise deals with negotiating and refining identities, as well as finding and experiencing meaning in daily life. There is potential for older adults to become active participants through digital technology, and new challenges in research and practice emerge.
