Conduct a pilot randomized control to assess the preliminary efficacy of IPROACTIF, an occupational therapist-delivered primary care intervention for aging and chronic disease management.


The IPROACTIF intervention is based on the premise of preventing the physical and cognitive decline that is associated with aging and chronic disease. The 12-week intervention includes a comprehensive assessment of ADL functioning and ten intervention sessions addressing disease management, physical activity and executive functioning. This pilot randomized control trial will compare whether patients who receive IPROACTIF perform better than usual care patients on physical functioning, self-efficacy for chronic disease management, physical activity levels, executive functioning, health-related quality of life, and participation in life roles and activities.
