These included The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance (CMOP) (Law, Polatajko, Baptiste, & Townsend, 2002), the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) (World Health Organisation [WHO], 2001), the Person-Environment-Occupation (PEO) Model (Law, 1991) and the Occupational Performance Process Model (OPPM) (Fearing, Law, & Clarke, 1997).
Pertinent aspects of these domains are recognised as environmental conditions contributing to occupational performance issues (OPIs) in stage 3 of the OPPM, and as resources for resolving these OPIs in stage 4 (Fearing et al., 1997).
In consideration of this, the air conditioning could be viewed as an environmental resource in stage 4 of the OPPM. Likewise the PEO model recommends a good fit between the preferred climate and the work space temperature to facilitate a good working environment.
In this instance younger staff could be related to stage 3 of the OPPM as an environmental condition hindering Rachel's work performance.
