@clissa89 Hmm okay so painting nails right before #OTalk ? Bad idea. #epicfail (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:22 +0100)
@Helen_otuk So this evenings discussion is about skype type communications as a professional tool. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:23 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @RachHallster hello #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:34 +0100)

@Helen_otuk @pd2ot hello #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:47 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT This is my first #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:50 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk has everyone seen @munchknmunch ‘s very fitting/recent blog post on the topic? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly long time no see. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:06:51 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @allisulli multi tasking is a skill… #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:07:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT hey!! sooo great to see you here! 🙂 it may get hard to keep up but dont worry you can read back 🙂 #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:07:28 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @Helen_otuk @munchknmunch Just read a little bit. That made me think of a CEU workshop I took in telehealth. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:12 +0100)
@silkejaeger #otalk hi everyone. I will try to take part in the discussion although I’m not really friend with Skype. Hopefully I learn a bit more.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:13 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @Helen_otuk @munchknmunch #otalk I have, it’s a great post, prompting me to get thinking about the pros/cons of the topic(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:31 +0100)
@clissa89 @silkejaeger great to have you here whether or not you and skype are friends 😉 🙂 #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:37 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @MrsHaighOT Welcome #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:08:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @silkejaeger Nowadays… you can Skype via Facebook. I did that with a friend a few days ago. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:15 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @munchknmunch agree, prompted lots of thinking for me even tho i briefly skimmed! sparked off ideas #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:41 +0100)
@munchknmunch #otalk I had so much to say, I didn’t think twitter could handle it, hence the blog post! the article I link to at the end brings up ethics(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:44 +0100)
@RachHallster @clissa89 @helen_otuk @munchknmunch silly q but how do I access the blog? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:09:55 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @munchknmunch ‘s blog post focuses on utilising skype with clients which i think is something we can also discuss.
#otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:10:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @RachHallster not silly at all – i should have posted link. @munchknmunch do you have one handy? comp being slow #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:10:21 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @munchknmunch but u gotta b careful cuz I heard Skype is not considered as a secured medium in telehealth standards. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:04 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I was also thinking about using skype or similar as a tool between professionals… meetings, peer support, supervision etc. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:06 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 @RachHallster or directly to the post, http://t.co/uF51mRH2 #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @pd2ot @munchknmunch @helen_OTuk yes i know security issues concern, esp in UK NHS or education institutions #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:49 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT considered using it in a neuro rehab setting, but hit probs when it came to downloading software onto trust pcs #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:57 +0100)
@pd2ot @Helen_otuk #otalk Hello! *waves*(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:11:58 +0100)
@kirstyes Apologies #OTalk was sorting out Facebook events to get sorted for future events and time ran away. Will catch up now.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:12:03 +0100)
@munchknmunch @Helen_otuk #otalk keep forgetting to include the hashtag!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:12:44 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT yes ive come across same issues with Trusts not allowing downloading of software/concerns re data security #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:12:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @munchknmunch @helen_OTuk that’s why for my guest lectures, I actually asked USC for Mediasite access. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:13:03 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT what is Mediasite? not come across this #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:13:21 +0100)
@kirstyes @silkejaeger Why do you say not a friend. Good to know about drawbacks too. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:13:22 +0100)
@silkejaeger @billwongot #otalk oh didn’t know that. i think i’ll try this out with @therapiekraxner we are the german-austrian-part of the Ot-Bloggers.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:13:31 +0100)
@CharOReilly @BillWongOT thank you, I went on holiday so will be back now. Skype, how does it impact our client centred practice #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:14:14 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk The fantastic Diane Cox has done lots of work re telerehab & I think uses skype in CFS/ME service. One study: http://t.co/Ab1NwNHT (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:14:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT @silkejaeger @therapiekraxner I didn’t know that until a friend asked me to help her and another friend w/ NBCOT questions. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:14:26 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk in my second placement (secure MH), Skype used so that a client could contact her family overseas, had to use specific PC(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:14:31 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk recently saw something in news about Skype not being as secure as led to believe. Something re Intelligence Services???(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:14 +0100)
@silkejaeger @kirstyes #otalk i failed with the hardware-stuff first, had a wrong headset that did’nt run with the apple. that wasn’t a good start.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:30 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly I think it does help in some cases when the physical distance between the family/client & the professional is too great. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:47 +0100)
@Helen_otuk we use lync in my workplace which is similar to skype but on network and has the increased security, agreed by employer to utilise. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:15:47 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 Tammy Richmond in USC is another name. I’ve handouts from her presentation in email. Will forward it 2 anyone interested. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:16:41 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk MT @munchknmunch : worrying w regards 2 client information, but is it issue for professionals talking about egintervention research?(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:16:55 +0100)
@munchknmunch @BillWongOT #otalk sounds interesting!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:07 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT thanks BIll, how does Tammy use skype/similar? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:17 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk not come across Lync! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:17:41 +0100)
@clissa89 @TheSoapDragon hey you, there’s an #OTalk going on now if you’re interested 🙂 re skype for professional use(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:09 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I know that some researches have used skype (or similar) for interviews and recorded them. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk recording great feature for research. have seen this in some studies where participants international #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 her philosophy is that it depends on the available technology of the client and the facility. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:18:58 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 it is attached to our network microsoft tool #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:00 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes Yes, it is prob not a great idea to drive and skype simultaneously:) #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:37 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch I will send it to whoever is doing the write up. That way you all will have access. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:19:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Yes, that’s actually the method I will be using for the research part of my OTD project. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:14 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @BillWongOT that will be me Bill, thanks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:42 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Also, I know Skype is allowed for USC and CSUDH’s OT qualitative research classes. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:20:56 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk Videoconferencing useful in services in rural areas – especially if clients would have difficulty accessing central location(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk PM me your email when live chat is over. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yup… or in some cases within California, for example. It will take 4-5 hours to get from LA to Sacramento. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:10 +0100)
@pd2ot Not Skype but had a video conference CPA done when in the TC, both I and staff involved found it challenging (though useful) #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:26 +0100)
@stairliftscheme RT @Helen_otuk : @BillWongOT that will be me Bill, thanks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:32 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot what challenges did you encounter? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:23:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot that reminds me, have had placement in Trust where weekly review meetings had option for videoconferencing #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli haha! My preceptor meetings for my OTD project w/ Sarah Bodell will be done via Skype. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:30 +0100)
@CharOReilly @BillWongOT are you taking a different approache to your questioning for your OTD project? would it be different if it be facetoface #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:24:49 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT #OTalk tend to use socially in the evenings but can be unreliable, this would be a big problem in a meeting/conference. Can be frustrating.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:25:09 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 #OTalk Video linked to trauma, so I felt very uncomfortable. At that point I hadn’t dealt with it.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:25:22 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT that’s true, slow connections/glitches. used G+ Hangouts w/ similar issues. frustrating – & can lead to misunderstanding? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:12 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly no… because physically I couldn’t do that. I don’t want to make round trips/long distance phone calls every month. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:22 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 #OTalk I think it can be valuable, until my last review my consultant from home area hadn’t been involved so allowed involvement(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:26 +0100)
@kirstyes I prefer voice or text only use of Skype, not the biggest fan of being on video and it tends to be a bit hit and miss anyway #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:26:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly In this case, Skype allowed me to have more variety in terms of picking a preceptor for my OTD project is concerned. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:14 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I have been using the lync system for meetings and thinks with colleagues within the same organisation. Works well. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:47 +0100)
@munchknmunch @kirstyes #OTalk I think video is very important in some situations, particularly with clients for body language and attention monitoring(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:27:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes been on video before (personal call) where connection dropped. person thought i had hung up in anger. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:28:14 +0100)
@BillWongOT @MH4OT In US, the regulations can be pretty strict. You can only do it within the same state, or the states you have OT license in. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:28:50 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot that does sound v valuable, but also difficult emotionally. glad a home professional could be involved tho! #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:25 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk no technology is perfect, and not always Skype’s fault if call drops!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:32 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT @clissa89 absolutely, it could be quite distressing for a service user, to be cut off mid concersation #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:47 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 #OTalk as with all tech, with increased capability comes more potential problems(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:29:52 +0100)
@BillWongOT @munchknmunch @kirstyes yeah… but I think you have to give the client or caregiver the consent form- virtual or live. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:30:11 +0100)
@clissa89 @munchknmunch yes you are right. will always be potential problems #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @MrsHaighOT @clissa89 I can anticipate that. I got cut off a few times during my 1st preceptor meeting with Sarah Bodell. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:17 +0100)
@clissa89 @munchknmunch thinking perhaps if was using professionally with client with abandonment issues would discuss potential tech problems #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli Not mine. I have to do brick and mortar classes. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:31:54 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 ooops not good #OTalk did you have an alternative way to contact to explain? Or connection picked up(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:32:29 +0100)
@kirstyes @munchknmunch Very true. Just a personal preference I think. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @munchknmunch If I were the OT in this instance, 1st thing I would ask is if they have experience using Skype or similar. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:09 +0100)
@CharOReilly @Helen_otuk technology always poses risks of breaking doesnt it? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:11 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes think we switched to text until able to call again. maybe not option with client #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:15 +0100)
@munchknmunch @clissa89 yeah, and always good to have backup communication just to quickly say you’re still there if internet dies for a minute! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:26 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 maybe not appropriate in such cases? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:33:33 +0100)
@allisulli @BillWongOT Nothing wrong w that! #OT is a “hands on” profession and group dynamics important in learning- different issues w Skype #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:39 +0100)
@munchknmunch @CharOReilly #otalk my smartphone does cool things, likes to freeze occassionally. �10 backup lasts forever but only phones #technologyfail (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:46 +0100)
@CharOReilly @MrsHaighOT @clissa89 thats a valid point. Maybe a seperate risk ax should be completed before any online contact with a serviceuser #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk possibly discussing risk of + making plan about what if connection drops enough. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:34:51 +0100)
@kirstyes #OTalk The text feature is useful for sharing web links etc, or keeping track of key points of a conversation.(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:08 +0100)
@Helen_otuk But even f2f meetings can have issues, how many times has anyone been late for a meeting due to traffic / accident / roadworks #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:21 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes yes im big fan of that – and also as this can be archived, dont need to scribble down links etc! #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:29 +0100)
@kirstyes Has anyone got the share screen feature of Skype working? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli I agree. So different from Math and Statistics… lol! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes i used Yugma in the past as separate software. think this has been inc into skype but not used yet #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:35:57 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Always need to have back up… as i do when doing to f2f I will make sure I have phone number in case anything unexpected arises. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:14 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Yugma now one to me. #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:34 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk That happened to me at an OT conference a little over a year ago. My car broke down, so I missed almost a whole day! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:36:47 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes think it is now just part of skype, not sure if available separately. have you used screen share? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:27 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk For me is email, Facebook, or even IM. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:28 +0100)
@munchknmunch @kirstyes yes, I sometimes watch my boyfriend play a computer game! screenshare is fine/works at ok speed for us #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT oh no!! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:37:44 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 No, I tried but couldn’t seem to get it working. Wondered if was a paid feature. #OTalk could google how to!(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:33 +0100)
@CharOReilly #otalk which service user groups do you think skype would work best with? #adolescense ?(Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:35 +0100)
@tOTal_ability @BillWongOT @mh4ot ditto for Canada (province not state) #telerehab #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:38:54 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly i’m aware of videoconferencing software being used successfully with people with CFS/ME in a rural area #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:15 +0100)
@kirstyes @munchknmunch Lol! Is there any special steps you have to take at either end other than press share screen button? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOReilly I might be biased on this one. But, I think those who are on the higher end of the autism spectrum. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:46 +0100)
@MrsHaighOT @kirstyes @clissa89 tried to have conference with the family but it was at an additional cost for video of us all #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:39:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @MrsHaighOT oh is that because it’s a group call? #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:11 +0100)
@Helen_otuk think important to identify not just skype but teleconferencing in general. Maybe can have access to more secure services? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:29 +0100)
@munchknmunch @MrsHaighOT @kirstyes @clissa89 yes, group video is a premium feature – google hangouts would maybe be better in this situation #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk Now that I think of it, as a researcher, I also need to have a voice recorder if I have to call over the phone! #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk with skype group video is a paid for service. #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:40:58 +0100)

#otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:41:56 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk yes 😉 but in early days, not sure if software has improved? #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:42:24 +0100)
@munchknmunch @Helen_otuk no, I’m more of a Skype fan because of iPad app #otalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:42:38 +0100)

@RhbAlternatives You can now have group video chats on Gmail – or hangouts on Google+…Google seems a lot better than skype for video conferencing #OTalk (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 20:45:37 +0100)
