About the Presenter


The OT Link is thrilled to welcome Daleen Casteleijn (PhD) to present Coffee Club.

Daleen is a well known, experienced OT, researcher and lecturer in the field of occupational therapy in psychiatry. She started her career in the 1980s in public hospitals and worked at Kalafong Hospital, Weskoppies Hospital and Garankuwa Hospital. She began work in academics in the 1990’s and worked for 16 years in the Occupational Therapy Department of University of Pretoria. She moved to WITS Occupational Therapy Department in 2008. She continues to work part-time for WITs and is involved in many other training activities.

As part of her doctoral research, she developed the outcome measure: Activity Participation Outcome Measure (APOM). Therapists can use the APOM to track change in activity participation in patients with mental health conditions, stroke and traumatic brain injuries.  The APOM can also be used in functional capacity evaluations to establish baseline functioning and to track change in clients undergoing rehabilitation.  The APOM has international recognition and is used in countries such as the UK, Australia, Singapore and Japan.

As such Daleen has researched outcomes and outcomes measures extensively, and especially in the mental health field. She brings this rich evidence base as well as her broad teaching and clinical experience together to present a fantastic, up-to-date Coffee Club session.
