Nicolaas van den Heever, OTD, BOT, OTR/L, founding dean and director of the Occupational Therapy Program at West Coast University, is this year’s honored recipient of the Occupational Therapy Association of California’s (OTAC) Practice Award, the University announced today.
The award, which recognizes an OTAC member who has made “significant contributions to the advancement of occupational therapy in the areas of therapeutic practice, education, communication and/or community service” was presented to Dr. van den Heever at the organization’s 38th annual conference last week in Pasadena.
“This honor serves as confirmation of my years of leadership and advocacy for occupational therapy,” Dr. van den Heever stated. “I believe it’s emblematic of my commitment to — and strong identification with — the field of OT.”
A Trailblazer in his Field
The first male occupational therapy graduate in his native South Africa, Dr. van den Heever has over 32 years of experience in a variety of practice areas: from mental health, wellness, cognitive rehabilitation and to aging in place, to sensory integration, skilled nursing and community-based treatment — and in a wide range of practice settings: the military, rural villages in Africa and China (for the World Health Organization), large psychiatric hospitals and industrial units, orphanages, substance abuse rehabilitation centers and in private practice.
Before joining West Coast University in 2012, he spent three decades in the health care field as a clinician, consultant, rehabilitation director and hospital administrator; as a business development and marketing professional; and as a professor and department chair at the University of Western Cape in South Africa.
A Speaker and Advocate
Earning his post-professional occupational therapy doctorate from the University of St. Augustine, Dr. van den Heever has been an international, national and local speaker on the topics of rehabilitation for adults and children, stroke prevention, stroke and brain injury rehabilitation, and return-to-driving rehabilitation. Dr. van den Heever recently presented at the 16th International Congress of the World Federation of Occupational Therapy in Yokohama, Japan.
A board member of the California Foundation for Occupational Therapy (CFOT), he also served as a board member and regional director for OTAC. Currently he is the editor of the AOTAs Administration and Leadership Special Interest Group quarterly.
Among his many accomplishments, Dr. van den Heever played a key role in founding the first multidisciplinary community-based OT curriculum and fieldwork training program in the world, securing a $ 1 million grant for a home-to-home survey of 250,000 households in a squatter community in South Africa. The result was multidisciplinary, community-based intervention programs that helped establish primary care services within this community.
“I trust this award will help move West Coast University ever closer to the forefront of occupational therapy education,” he said. “It’s indicative of the high level of quality and commitment our OT program brings to our students and to our community.”

Older men and women who choose to undergo cosmetic procedures remain safe and have complications at a rate no different than their younger counterparts, according to a recent study that will be presented at Plastic Surgery The Meeting, the annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Oct. 10-14, in Chicago.
With increasing number of elderly patients seeking aesthetic surgery there is a need to better understand the complications of cosmetic procedures unique to this population, said, Dr. Yezhelyev. Our study demonstrated that patients over 65 years old can safely undergo cosmetic procedures with a complications rate similar to younger patients when surgery is performed by board certified plastic surgeon.”
As the U.S. population ages, numerous men and women age 65 and older are opting for cosmetic enhancement procedures. An extensive review of information from May 2008 to May 2013 from the CosmetAssure database illustrated that postoperative complications among the elderly occurred at a rate of 1.94 percent, statistically insignificant from the complication rate among younger patients, which was 1.84 percent. For this study, the mean age of the senior patient was 69.1 years while the mean age of the younger patient was 39.2 years.
The similar complication rate occurred despite the greater-than-average presence of health-related indicators among the elderly in comparison to younger patients, including a higher Body Mass Index (25.4 percent compared to 24.2 percent), and a higher incidence of diabetes (5.7 percent to 1.6 percent). Not all indicators were negative, though, as elder patients smoked at a rate of 3.4 percent compared to the younger patient rate of 8.5 percent.
The study also indicated that the post-surgical complication rates of octogenarian patients, patients 80 years or older, was 2.2 percent, which is also statistically insignificant compared to the 1.94-percent complication rate of all patients 65 and older, as well as the 1.84-percent complication rate among younger patients.
It is also worth noting that elderly patients had more facial procedures performed than their younger counterparts, 62.9 percent to 12 percent, respectively. The only cosmetic procedure that indicated a higher complication rate among older patients was abdominoplasty, 5.4 percent to 3.9 percent, respectively. The most common postoperative complications in older patients were hematoma, infection and problems with the healing of wounds.
Author Max Yezhelyev, MD, PhD, Department of Plastic Surgery, Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., is presenting the study, Safety Of Cosmetic Procedures In Elderly And Octogenarian Patients, on Sunday, Oct. 12, at 10:30 a.m. at McCormick Place West in Chicago.
Reporters can register to attend Plastic Surgery The Meeting, or arrange interviews with presenters, by contacting ASPS Public Relations at (847) 228-9900, media(at)plasticsurgery(dot)org or in Chicago, Oct. 10-14.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is the world’s largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons.

ASPS comprises more than 94 percent of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States. Founded in 1931, the Society represents physicians certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. ASPS advances quality care to plastic surgery patients by encouraging high standards of training, ethics, physician practice and research in plastic surgery.
