#OTalk is a weekly Twitter chat, designed to enable discussion about occupational therapy and the broader academic discipline of occupational science.
The #OTalk twitter chats take place on Tuesday evenings between 8pm-9pm (UK time) and are suggested and facilitated by members of the #OTalk community (for example Occupational Therapists, students and researchers). Each host produces a blog post to introduce their topic and then leads the chat by using a number of questions on the night to start the discussion. To follow and engage in the discussion, use the hashtag #OTalk on Twitter.
