How occupational therapy can help the anxiety epidemic
In this episode, we have Taylor Gurley, a professor of occupational therapy as our guest. She will be discussing the new recommendation by the United States Preventive Services Task Force for primary care physicians to screen their patients for mental health concerns, specifically anxiety. The recommendation comes after a peak in the prevalence of mental illnesses in 2020, with 1 in 3 young adults experiencing a mental illness leading to a 31 percent increase in mental health-related emergency room visits. Taylor will be talking about how occupational therapy can be a pathway to meaningful care for patients, and how it can be used as an early intervention method. Tune in to learn more about how occupational therapy can help patients with anxiety and how it can be integrated into primary care.
Taylor Gurley is a professor of occupational therapy.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “U.S. adults should get routine anxiety screening. But then what?“

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
