If you’re an occupational therapist, take a look at my post under the Occupational Therapists Only page. You’ll need a password (just email me).
I’m keen to find out how confident occupational therapists are, and how readily they can define their practice. Not to be ‘exclusive’ (as you know I’m definitely NOT into patch protection), but to see whether ‘we’ can be clear and confident about what we can offer a team.
I will admit to being concerned that some occupational therapists, in an effort to stake a claim to ‘their role’, almost seem to say ‘OT can do ANYTHING’ (or everything), while on the other hand, some can find it difficult to articulate briefly and confidently just what they can offer a team.
If you’re not an occupational therapist, I’m really curious to find out what your expectations are from occupational therapists. Do you know what you can ask for from an OT? Do you know about the training, the therapeutic tools, the areas of intervention of the occupational therapists you know? Drop me a line – I’m really keen to find out!
