The 3-Step Workout for Life was developed to translate improved muscle strength into greater functional gains. The objective of this project is to adapt and augment the 3-Step Workout for Life into an easily deliverable intervention program for home health agencies. Through continual collaborations between project managers, recruited therapists, and fellow agency stakeholders, a series of learning cycles will transpire, further refining the implementation process. This project ultimately aims to promote the independence of older adults in homes and communities by bettering occupational therapists’ ability to implement cost-effective, evidence-based interventions alongside collaborating physical therapists. With recent Medicare payment reforms placing an emphasis on value-based care, the need for utilizing evidence-based practices to optimize patient functional recovery has risen to unprecedented levels.
