Kia ora,
I wondered if anyone had an opinion or could share evidence to answer the following:

Can the Sensory Profile, W.Dunn, assessment be used with acutely unwell in-patient forensic (pyschiatry) service-users/clients/patients?

Greetings
Although it is not recommended to use with people when they are in an acute phase I have certainly used it when I worked in acute care - quite a bit actually. I used it with people, along with my own tools in my book, to help the person see where they were at and what would be helpful to them but also (once they were more stable) did it again - or recommended to do it again - when they are in a my typical place to identify both their acute and more typical profile patterns.

I do know that many OTs use it across a wide variety of practice settings, including acute care.

I hope this helps!
Tina

Kia ora Tina
Thank you very much for the reply, and very sorry for my late reply. That is helpful and I think that is what we had concluded here too in our in-patient forensic service.

Regards
