Suggestions from others:

Bronnie Thompson: Do a little every day. Read a journal article, summarise it and write about the implications for practice. Be real. Read other peoples blogs and make comments. Add your own resources for other people to use. Show your sense of humor. Just in case I don’t get to join in 🙂

Stalkerbird
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk #OTalkHi all, I’m about for tonight. Who is blogging already for CPD?

BillWongOT
@kirstyes @pd2ot I am a heavy blogger on OTconnections, as @otnotes knows. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Stalkerbird @kirstyes @helen_otuk in US, I don’t think we have that. #OTalk

kirstyes
@pd2ot @sazdc Oh it is #OTuesday too (miss off a T). As well as #OTalk

gilliancrossley
@Stalkerbird @kirstyes @Helen_otuk #otalkI already blog for CPD.. also just because I like it! : )

otstudentinfo
#OTalkhi

pd2ot
@Stalkerbird #OTalkI’ve just started blogging for CPD, using it to reflect on being a SU now I’m a student.

otnotes
@BillwongOT consider it “continuing education” or informal prof. development #otalk

gilliancrossley
@pd2ot #otalkI like the blogging commitment!

otnotes
@billwongOT I have just about fully given up on x-posting to OTconnections until they get feature 2 export from blogger @aotainc #otalk

Lisa_D_OT
Hi all, I’ve recently started blogging for CPD but only done a couple of posts so far, I need to be more committed! #otalk

pd2ot
@gilliancrossley #OTalkprobably a good thing I didn’t as I seem to have a mush brain tonight!

kirstyes
RT @gilliancrossley: @Stalkerbird @kirstyes @Helen_otuk #otalkI already blog for CPD.. also just because I like it! : )

kirstyes
@bobcollinsOT Evening Bob. I remember you from conference. Great to have you on board. #OTalk @helen_otuk

gilliancrossley

Helen_otuk
Good evening all… #otalk

kirstyes
@BillWongOT Sorry Bill what don’t you have in the US? #OTalk @stalkerbird @helen_otuk

pd2ot
@Lisa_D_OT #OTalkNot come across OT Connections… shall google it now

BillWongOT
@otnotes the features are getting buggy, too. I can only write stuff in plain text. #OTalk

Stalkerbird
#OTalkSo what are the top tips for starting to blog?

pd2ot
@Helen_otuk #OTalkEvening 🙂

kirstyes
@Stalkerbird @helen_otuk I blog but somewhat infrequently and not purely for CPD but I think some posts can be used as CPD Evidence #OTalk

gilliancrossley
@bobcollinsOT @kirstyes @Helen_otuk #OTalk, hey Bob nice to meet you! : )

otnotes
@Stalkerbird If you search “how not to suck at blogging” that is a great article. Start small and do what you enjoy #otalk

pd2ot
@gilliancrossley #OTalkI wouldn’t object to too much brain, hehe

kirstyes
@Stalkerbird @helen_otuk I have set up private CPD and PhD blogs too, only for me to see. #OTalknot actually used them that much yet.

Helen_otuk
Sorry a little late, traffic! Why when you have a deadline to people drive at 20mph! #otalk

otnotes
@kirstyes I am also in that boat. Some v. detailed evidence posts, some just about whatever happened that day, some more random even! #otalk

gilliancrossley
@pd2ot #otalkoh darn it! these typos are becoming a habit! lol! actually I’ve blogged about it! ha ha

BillWongOT
@pd2ot @lisa_d_ot it’s http://t.co/qmjaVfdO #OTalk

Helen_otuk
@otnotes you blog lots! love them even the random ones! #otalk

OT_Expert
Hi everyone – I’m able to dip in and out tonight for once! #otalk

kirstyes
@BillWongOT And CEU stands for? We are lucky in the UK that we can use any activity as long as it meets standards #OTalk

pd2ot
@otnotes #OTalk @kirstyesI want to do more academice blogging, but lack confidence to put it ‘out there’ Any tips?

BillWongOT
@kirstyes @stalkerbird @helen_otuk I actually cited a blog entry for a conference proposal for #AOTA13 . #OTalk

pd2ot
@BillWongOT #OTalkFab, thanks Bill

BillWongOT
RT @otnotes: @Stalkerbird If you search “how not to suck at blogging” that is a great article. Start small and do what you enjoy #otalk

otnotes
@Helen_otuk Thank you! I don’t live up to my own standards often #otalk

kirstyes
@otnotes I write about my creative writing and me and have photos so I would consider personal blog rather than fully professional. #OTalk

charl885
hi all, sorry i’m late to #otalk. what is the topic today?

gilliancrossley
@bobcollinsOT @kirstyes i’m trying out tweet deck for the first time! #otalk.. my advice is just follow the chat and join in if you want to!

Lisa_D_OT
@otnotes I like it as a way to reflect, it feels more purposeful if I can share it – I read OT student blogs before started my course #otalk

kirstyes
Do people have a blog post they are proudest of? #OTalk

BillWongOT
@kirstyes continuation education units = CEU’s #OTalk

otnotes
@kirstyes our natl board accepts many prof activities, incl blogs to a degree but the states have different rules #otalk

kirstyes
@bobcollinsOT Where are you in terms of apps etc? #OTalk @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk

gilliancrossley
@charl885 hey! topic is blogging for CPD did you figure your blog issues out? #otalk

Helen_otuk
I seem to only blog for specific projects, but I do keep meaning to change that! #otalk

kirstyes
@pd2ot @otnotes What do you mean by that exactly. I would say what you are doing is already good academic blogging. #OTalk

kirstyes
@Stalkerbird Is blogging something you’ve considered #OTalk @helen_otuk

CharOReilly
#OTalkgood evening all! I hadnt had much experience of blogging until starting twitter and have found it very useful to read others blogs.

gilliancrossley
@pd2ot @otnotes @kirstyes do you mean with theory etc..? #otalk

kirstyes
@BillWongOT And I’m guessing that these are fairly structured? #OTalk

Lisa_D_OT
@BillWongOT Thanks Bill 🙂 #otalk

otnotes
@kirstyes from a research standpoint, I was v proud of work on serial casting entry http://t.co/MtdMFIGJ took forever to write #otalk

pd2ot
@kirstyes: @pd2ot @otnotes #OTalkI suppose more summarising papers/reflecting on articles. I think I feel cautious [1/2]

kirstyes
@otnotes: @kirstyes our natl board accepts many prof activities, incl blogs to a degree but the states have different rules #otalk” ah!

charl885
@gilliancrossley no, still haven’t had a chance to chat with @kirstyes about it. so busy! my page does exist though #otalk

Lisa_D_OT
RT @Helen_otuk: I seem to only blog for specific projects, but I do keep meaning to change that! – Me too #otalk

OT_Expert
OT blogs are so useful. One reason – can give great insight into a completely different setting that u normally can’t access #otalk

pd2ot
@kirstyes #OTalkwhere it concerns other people’s work and voicing my opinion [2/2]

Stalkerbird
@kirstyes @helen_otuk #OTalkContemplating it! Have been very inspired by others blogs

BillWongOT
@pd2ot @otnotes @kirstyes be as formal as possible. Also, it will be good to include some OT and OS terms that people should know. #OTalk

CharOReilly
#OTalk, thinking of doing a daily blog for my placement for #CPD, ill call it #100daysofOTplacement. @gilliancrossley #yourbloginspiredme

otnotes
Agree! RT @OT_Expert: OT blogs are so useful…can give great insight into a completely different setting that u normally cant access #otalk

gilliancrossley
@bobcollinsOT @kirstyes You can get tweet deck on PC. I do it on laptop.(got it today) also you can open multiple tabs if easier! #otalk

kirstyes
@otnotes Very good point. Blog posts often take much longer to write than you think. #OTalk

Lisa_D_OT
RT @kirstyes: Do people have a blog post they are proudest of? – for me, my #cot2012 post, really made me reflect on what I’d learnt #otalk

CharOReilly
@OT_Expert #OTalk, definately agree. Since were encouraged to be #reflectivepractitioners, a blog is a great tool

lottie01
My one and only blog is purely for #OT and was set up to occupy my time in unemployement but was meant to continue once employed #OTalk1/2

otnotes
@pd2ot it’s OK to be cautious. I know my interpretation of certain research has changed from student to practitioner @billwongot #otalk

OT_Expert
@CharOReilly @gilliancrossley That would be really interesting to read 🙂 #otalk

gilliancrossley
@CharOReilly #otalk! good idea! just be careful with confidentiality etc.. but I would be interested in reading it! : )

BillWongOT
@Lisa_D_OT @otnotes that’s my philosophy, too. #OTalk

lottie01
however recently found it difficult to keep up but have so much to write. My aim was just to document my OT journey & experiences #OTalk

kirstyes
@bobcollinsOT I think Gillian used to open a second tab with the @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk #OTalkhashtag. You could download tweetdeck

BillWongOT
@kirstyes @otnotes typically it takes me a couple hours minimum… But some of that time is because I want to proofread it. #OTalk

charl885
how often do people feel is often enough to write blog posts (given the time it takes) – just trying to build myself a plan #otalk

DebbiiHarrison
I’m here #OTalkhad a good morning running an AHP study day on supervision

otnotes
@pd2ot I find that @ytherapysource does good summaries of research with appropriately cautious interpretations. they’re v helpful #otalk

Lisa_D_OT
RT @OT_Expert: OT blogs are so useful…can give great insight into a completely different setting that u normally cant access #otalk

lottie01
@kirstyes I only have four posts roughly atm but actually my one about professional identity was something which inspired me to start #OTalk

gilliancrossley
@lottie01 I have several blogs! it’s hard to keep on top! I have added blogger app to ipad find it easier to post when I get a chance #otalk

Helen_otuk
@bobcollins I use tweetchat, only focuses on the # you enter. #otalk

kirstyes
@pd2ot Yes I can why this might concern but your views are valid. You can make posts private or password protected on WordPress #OTalk

claireOT
Hi everyone at #OTalk tonight! I have lots of bogs at http://t.co/pKQbGVSo, also http://t.co/9e1AUSxgfor disability experiences

lottie01
@charl885 I think it depends upon your focus as such and what works best for you – so long as its interesting for you and the reader #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Lisa_D_OT @kirstyes good question. I can’t recall one since I wrote so many. :p #OTalk

pd2ot
@otnotes @billwongot #otalkThanks, I suspect I just need to take a tentative step and just try it (cautiously)

kirstyes
@Stalkerbird and hopefully by tonight ;0) #OTalk @helen_otuk

otnotes
@charl885 it has to work w/ your sched. In college, I could have posted daily until I started placement. Now try for 8/month & fail #otalk

OT_Expert
@DebbiiHarrison Welcome 🙂 Study day sounds interesting! #otalk

claireOT
@wordsandbirds wouldn’t it be great to see a new character in Holby- an OT! #OTalk

pd2ot
@otnotes #OTalkI shall check that out!

Lisa_D_OT
@charl885 I post weekly, but finding it difficult whilst on placement #otalk

kirstyes
@Lisa_D_OT *tootles off for a quick read * (whistles that she hasn’t done hers yet). #OTalk

claireOT
can confirm that social media can be used as evidence for HPC audit- I submitted my blogs, Facebook profile and LinkedIn as evidence #OTalk

gilliancrossley
@CharOReilly yes, ensuring nothing identifiable or negative about placement.. or unprofessional. would you tell your placement?#otalk

otnotes
@lottie01 @charl885 agree on the time &interest must work for you. If you use an RSS reader, doesn’t matter if blogs update infreqly #otalk

charl885
@DebbiiHarrison fancy seeing you here Debbie! #otalk

lottie01
@charl885 I think I have time management & motivational issues (due to my perfectionism not being a positive trait) when blogging #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat
@CharOReilly just watch out because “personal identifying information” is more than names and setting! #OTalk @gilliancrossley

BillWongOT
@charl885 as needed in my opinion. A lot of times I got inspired by something I came across. #OTalk

LauraJayneTuck
#OTalkI’m thinking of doing a daily blog during placement too, I think it’ll be a good way of thinking about each day and reflecting

Stalkerbird
@kirstyes @helen_otuk #OTalk always inspired by Tuesday night talk and #Occhat!

OTalk_Occhat
@CharOReilly examples would be clinically identifiable patterns of behaviour eg self harm #OTalk @gilliancrossley

BillWongOT
@pd2ot @otnotes if you are not sure, you can always ask a peer for feedback before you officially post it. #OTalk

sazDC
First #OTalktweet! Eek! 🙂

OTalk_Occhat
@CharOReilly and if you use photos, don’t use the face or scars or any tattoos! #tip #OTalk @gilliancrossley

pd2ot
@kirstyes #OtalkI think I’m just feeling, erm, like I know nothing! Prob need to challenge that by a blog post

gilliancrossley
@OTalk_Occhat @CharOReilly #otalkyes need to be careful that it can’t be figured out!

kirstyes
@Lisa_D_OT Wow great tweet fro. Chief exec. Lovely reflection and good tips especially re session titles #OTalk

@sazDC #OTalkWelcome!

Helen_otuk
@sazDC Welcome #otalk

otnotes
@lottie01 I feel the perfectionist prob as well. But taking a step and trying can be very worthwhile! (you can always edit it later!) #otalk

Lisa_D_OT
@kirstyes 🙂 enjoy! #otalk

charl885
@lottie01 That’s what worries me most.I have been keeping a reflective notepad of ideas (esp. for those that come to u in the night!) #otalk

kirstyes
@CharOReilly @lisa_d_ot click on Lisa’s profile her blog link is there and it is the first post. #OTalk

Anyone know if @pd2ot has joined us? I’m loving her blog! #OTalk

sazDC
Ooh actually for my 2nd #OTalk tweet I’d like to say a huge thank you to @claireOT and @pd2otfor their help with my application 🙂 🙂

OT_Expert
@claireOT I also used my twitter, facebook and website as evidence for the HPC and wasn’t rejected! #otalk

fullyOccupied
#OTalkhi all. Just in & having a quick scout through tweets; I’ll be lurking & learning 2night as don’t blog (though I am a blog consumer!!

BillWongOT
@claireOT I also used it for my OT conference presentation this past March, and again in October. #OTalk

lottie01
@OTalk_Occhat mentions a good point re: confidentiality, so important 2B broad & maybe blogging isnt always appropriate – thoughts? #OTalk

kirstyes
@lottie01 You had a CPD or interview one too I think I directed my students to. #OTalk

charl885
@otnotes Ah ok. I’m not sure I would have enough interesting things to write that many! But need enough to keep people reading… #otalk

BillWongOT
@CharOReilly @gilliancrossley I don’t identify consumers, unless I am talking about myself. #OTalk

Helen_otuk
@fullyOccupied your input will be great then… consumers are important too! #otalk

sazDC
@claireOT @pd2ot #OTalknot heard yet but will let you know as soon as I do!

otnotes
@lottie01 @OTalk_Occhat sometimes a personal reflective journal is better than a public forum initially, & you can edit for public #otalk

OT_Expert
@DebbiiHarrison it’s so hard to keep up with the conversations! 😦 #OTalk

CharOReilly
#OTalk, i will definately gain agreement from placement first

lottie01
@kirstyes I do indeed thanks – must add a first job experience review type one..! #OTalk

BillWongOT
@otnotes @lottie01 yup. I always edit, too! #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat

@charl885 like I said, I always RSS new blogs so it auto updates, I don’t actually go to the blog to check for new. More efficient #otalk

lottie01
@OTalk_Occhat It doesn’t stop me but I would hesitate upon reflecting upon a specific case on a public forum #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat
@CharOReilly you don’t *need* to ask permission, although could discuss your blog with supervisor or practice placement Uni support? #OTalk

charl885
@Lisa_D_OT @BillWongOT Weekly does sound manageable. I generally find it hard to write things without feeling inspired! #otalk

kirstyes
@gilliancrossley Can you tell us why you chose to have more Han one blog? #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat
@CharOReilly it’s your right to blog if you want to- just be mindful of our tips! #OTalk

@BillWongOT @otnotes I do have a post thats been half-written with many edits re: qual experience just waiting finishing and posting #OTalk

kirstyes
@BillWongOT @otnotes So what is OTconnections exactly? Is it an AOTA membership site? #OTalk

kirstyes
@Lisa_D_OT @otnotes Was it easy enough to find them? #OTalk

BillWongOT
@lottie01 @otalk_occhat when I started my “conversations with aspies” blog. I thought about the same thing. #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat
I ❤ RSS feeds (google reader for me!) @claireOT #OTalk

OTalk_Occhat
@pd2ot do tweet links to your blog, for everyone to see. Do you have a personal favourite blogpost? #OTalk

gilliancrossley
@kirstyes #otalkI like them separate rather than as pages as I can manage them better too

Yes! more ppl need to! RT OTalk_Occhat I ❤ RSS feeds (google reader for me!) @claireOT #OTalk #otalk

Important to remember that even if it is just the person that would recognise themselves that could be an issue. #otalk

Has anyone considered the copyright protection on their blog? Recommend examining Creative Commons licensing! #OTalk

kirstyes
@CharOReilly @gilliancrossley I think this topic is not clear cut. Some people would say yes some no. #OTalk

@pd2ot what your blog address? #otalk @BillWongOT

@sazDC don’t panic. It takes some practice. I tend to follow one thread of discussion then go back and catch up later. #OTalk

LeonoraOT
@kirstyes: @LeonoraOT Feel free to contribute. Think we agreed 24 hour leeway before we grabchat #OTalk @Helen_otuk @BillWongOT” thnx

BillWongOT
@kirstyes @sazdc yes… It takes several chats to get used to it. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@otnotes @charl885 tried that at USC with my OT grad class, didn’t really work. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@OT_Expert in case you didn’t catch it, it is http://t.co/qu4t4TXy #OTalk

BillWongOT
@otnotes @charl885 but I think we can agree on one platform so that we can share the work- eg. Blogger, wordpress, etc. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Stalkerbird if you have a specialty topic, organize them all into one blog, and create another blog for misc. Topics. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Stalkerbird otherwise, 1 is just fine. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Stalkerbird I think for professional blogging, though, keep the commonly used acronyms we see on the Internet to a minimum. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@Stalkerbird you can use abbreviations, but make sure it is widely understood by the target audience. #OTalk

BillWongOT
@allisulli may you can pull from some #OTalk and #occhatmaterials.

allisulli
@BillWongOT: @allisulli may you can pull from some #OTalk and #occhatmaterials.” I always try to at least look:)) I like Moses Ikiugu

otnotes
@BillWongOT shouldn’t just be 1 class, 2 similar. Maybe 6 students natl (or several intl) in different program yrs would b broad enuf #otalk

otnotes
@BillWongOT key is similar interest but different enuf2 engage readers. Look up blog on OT education by salford university profs #otalk

OT_Expert
@BillWongOT brilliant, thank you. Will put it on the site. #OTalk

Great new blog by @Elaineampmh, who we saw at #COT2012 where she was a keynote speaker.

The title of my blog page is “Making the Invisible Visable”. I am an allied health professional in a national leadership role and I started my career as an occupational therapist in mental health where I worked for over twenty years. In my career I have seen huge changes in mental health practice with the development and advances in medicine, the move towards community care and the understanding and the need for people to be part of the wider social community because of the benefits this bring. My first job in 1985, was in a long stay rehabilitation day unit for people who were living in the hospital which in today’s mental health service would no longer exist or be needed.
Although the services and treatment techniques have advanced being an allied health professional or a service users of mental health services can at times be something that people are…

Unscripted Tuesday #OTalk 5/22/2012

There is no host for this chat, as there was no planned discussion topic for the day.  Hence, the title was called “Unscripted Tuesday”.  Below are the two main themes emerged from the chat.

International OT Tweet Up

@Helen_otuk @allisulli @billwongot That would be great we could have an international tweet up? #otalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:35:39 +0000)

 

@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @allisulli Maybe it should be a WFOT event. #OTalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:37:54 +0000)

 

@Helen_otuk @BillWongOT Good idea… you never know. Have you been to any WFOT conferences? #otalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:39:45 +0000)

 

@allisulli @BillWongOT @Helen_otuk yes. Attending a WFOT event sounds great #Otalk !
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:48:39 +0000)

 

@VirtualOT @BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @allisulli #OTalk sorry I forgot the #tag in last tweet. Tweetup for OT24Vx is a great idea.
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:49:15 +0000)

 

@Helen_otuk @VirtualOT @allisulli @billwongot that could be a great idea Anita #otalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:49:56 +0000)

Promoting #OT24Vx, WFOT

@BillWongOT @VirtualOT @Helen_otuk @allisulli I will definitely promote it at USC! #Otalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:50:19 +0000)

 

@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @VirtualOT @allisulli I heard this yr is on a Saturday, which makes it great for students in classes or on placements #otalk .
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:52:02 +0000)

 

@BillWongOT @VirtualOT @Helen_otuk @allisulli When u guys finalize it, I will spread the word in the US, especially among students. #OTalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:53:14 +0000)

 

@allisulli @BillWongOT @VirtualOT @Helen_otuk I would love to help promote this idea for #occupationaltherapy , WFOT, @AOTAInc @AICSOTA #OTalk
(Tue, 22 May 2012 19:56:56 +0000)

 

@BillWongOT @allisulli I tried to run the idea by @ASD_AOTA folks. I got no response. we should team up to send emails to different schools. #OTalk .
(Tue, 22 May 2012 20:00:56 +0000)

AOTA Slagle Lecture by @BillWongOT

This chat was hosted by Bill Wong.  He was there in person to hear and record the Eleanor Slagle Lecture at the most recent AOTA conference.  Upon hearing the lecture, he thought it would be a good idea to allow others who weren’t at the conference an opportunity to listen to the lecture and share their reflections and thoughts.

You can view Bill’s entire film of the Slagle lecture in our previous post please see http://otalkocchats.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/billwongots-complete-film-of-the-aota-slagle-lecture-2012/

Below are the following themes emerged from this discussion.

Ways to Promote the OT Profession

@kirstyes I’m afraid I’ve failed and not been able to watch all parts but have enjoyedwhat I saw. Like the 2 business card tip. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:03:30 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes 1. Promoting our profession is important, especially if we are part of communities such as Alzheimer’s, autism, etc. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:09:44 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes We need combine our expertise and connections to promote our great profession effectively.#OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:11:13 +0000)
@kirstyes I’ve read some comments (can’t remember where now) that we should just do and not just talk. I think there needs to be a mix maybe. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:16:39 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @kirstyes #OTalk I think maybe we need some OT reality tv to help us promote ; ) lol
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:23:03 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @kirstyes I recall learning about the role of firemen, police, nurse etc. maybe we should educate children to our role #otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:33:39 +0000)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @billwongot I’d love to see ‘balanced occupation’ sessions in Personal Health and Social Education sessions. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:35:48 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes I know my ex-classmate of mine suggest high school career fairs. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:40:33 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @lisaawicks So, that’s why I thought it maybe good to help organize some community events to educate the public about us. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:47:31 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley I go on an autism support groups to show myself as living ex. of how OT works. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:53:20 +0000)
@otstudentinfo I was promoting OT to the head of BBC Westminster today, she said I was very interesting so hopefully that wasn’t the red wine #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 23:21:48 +0000)

Providing User Friendly Definitions of Occupational Therapy and Why

@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes There are people in these communities who have little or no knowledge of what OT is. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:12:28 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes Through my experiences in support groups in AS, there r consumers & caregivers who don’t know what OT is. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:15:09 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes I have consumers and caregivers asking me what OT stands for. 😦 #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:16:01 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @kirstyes Right I understand.. I think that happens everywhere here! OT isn’t well known! We need to shout about it more! #otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:16:31 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @TheOTClub Nope… but I know Dr. Clark wrote a blog on OTConnections about this, too. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:19:55 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @TheOTClub http://t.co/cGD7rPpa This is the blog I talked about. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:22:37 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @BillWongOT @TheOTClub No didn’t see that! I find definition isn’t enough.. need to give some context to the individual #otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:21:06 +0000)
@LisaAWicks @BillWongOT Only the kiddos with IEPs would know what OT is. Maybe adding OT as part of general health knowledge curriculum? #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:37:33 +0000)
@kirstyes @LisaAWicks @billwongot Yes this is what I was after. Adding it in everything so that when people have need of OT they know about us #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:40:06 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley If you are in practice, try recruit clients who recovered well and use them to promote OT. #Otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:56:49 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley These communities like to see possible great results. I can say that from a consumer POV.#Otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:57:25 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley Maybe the social networking gurus should venture out to these online support groups to promote OT. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 20:00:08 +0000)

Promoting Events Such as OTGDS and OT4OT

@BillWongOT @kirstyes 2. I am going to use the fact that I am in OTD program at USC to promote OTGDS for next year.#Otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:10:31 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT Though all of my networks and tell OTs I come across about the opportunities they provide for networking. #OTalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:53:14 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes For me, if I am in academia, I definitely will promote it to my future students (and the general OT student body). #Otalk
(Sat, 26 May 2012 19:55:21 +0000)

Thanks for the people who contributed to this chat- @BillWongOT, @GillianCrossley, @LisaAWicks, and @Kirstyes, @otstudentinfo.
