Preproject0Demonstrating the needDemonstrate an occupational need within the person-centred performance context0Evaluation
1Conception of needConceptualise the need as identified by the person1
2Outline of feasibilityConduct an occupational performance analysis to identify the person(s) PET requirements2

Preproject3Substantive feasibility studyDevelop collaborative goal(s) by identifying the detailed PET design requirement for the home modification3Modification planning
4Outline conceptual designConduct substantive feasibility study for achieving the PET specification (including funding route)4
