@OTalk_Occhat @gillu3 Hello and welcome. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:04:24 +0100)
@BAOTCOT The first is a two-parter. What are the qualities required of a professional? #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:04:26 +0100)
@Lisa_D_OT Hi all #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:04:41 +0100)
@BAOTCOT Is clinical competence and confidence sufficient, or do human values and behaviours have a role to play? #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:04:48 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat Especially when we observe unprofessional behaviour and how we address this. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:05:06 +0100)

@BillWongOT @BAOTCOT We need human values and behaviors, too… because OT is not a profession where you can get by with being “book smart” #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:07:53 +0100)

@BAOTCOT It’s curious how fast the debate has swung to compassion: can it be measured/assessed? I know this has been considered in nursing… #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:12:25 +0100)

@BillWongOT @BAOTCOT It’s not something that can be quantified, in my opinion. But, you can see the difference between a lot and no compassion. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:13:31 +0100)

@gerbil10 @Schedulist @gillu3 I agree, the key is using reflection to avoid bias #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:14:49 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @BAOTCOT #otalk , compassion is like an invisible quality, I think it can be assessed through discussion & interview with somebody(Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:15:02 +0100)

@kirstyes I only found this, this week. HCPC resource -results of survey on professionalism http://t.co/9Irp0SDA #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:16:13 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @BAOTCOT Compassion can be observed in words and behaviour but it is much more than not being cruel or neglectful #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:16:15 +0100)

@BillWongOT @Schedulist Common models in the US now is that we do an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary model. So, that would be a no, IMO. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:17:59 +0100)

@BillWongOT @IanIreland Yes, being honest is important. But, knowing how to deliver that message can be important in some situations. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:19:24 +0100)
@cumbrianclaire @BAOTCOT Values are fundamental – competence can be developed but if the values are missing it won’t work #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:19:48 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Always? I know I have at time kept quiet about things so as not to do harm, 1/2 RT @IanIreland : Honesty in everything. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:00 +0100)
@IanIreland @BillWongOT Agree – honesty with tact! #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:05 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @otalk_occhat It is so hard to challenge unprofessional behaviour in practice #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied @AgencyNurse 2nd that. From personal experience, I believe in OT more and more since 2 years ago. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:23 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Things sometimes have to be paced… honesty yes, but with caution! #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:25 +0100)
@AgencyNurse @gilliancrossley yes the same can be said for nursing – it’s an interesting concept to bring in to professionalism #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:20:27 +0100)

@kirstyes @BillWongOT @schedulist Hi Bill I think that meant should we (nurses & OTs) maintain a distance from clients rather than each other. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:21:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DebbiiHarrison @otalk_occhat But that’s where you have to keep a keen eye on what’s going on and think about the best option. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:22:01 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @AgencyNurse I think it links with integrity. integrating and internalizing personal and profession values #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:22:39 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I think some of my best outcomes have been when myself and a nurse have had the courage to stand up and be counted! TOGETHER. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:23:09 +0100)
@kirstyes @BAOTCOT @gillu3 great. Thanks. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:23:19 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @schedulist In that case, I don’t think it’s good idea to keep distance cuz communication’s important for better of client. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:23:32 +0100)
@AgencyNurse @gilliancrossley i think you are probably right it does – a lot of professional values are very interconnected #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:24:01 +0100)
@BAOTCOT Interesting to see the positive reaction to the 6Cs: what do people make of the other Cs beyond courage and compassion? #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:24:12 +0100)

@CharOTReilly #otalk , communication is very important. in my experience, unprofessional behavior usually stems from poor/lack of communication(Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:27:48 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Schedulist @kirstyes emotional distance, again, this depends on the situation. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:28:01 +0100)

@kirstyes @BAOTCOT communication and active listening are important. Also communicating intentions which may not be clear by actions #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:28:23 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @AgencyNurse yes this highlights communication and commitment too. #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:28:33 +0100)
@AgencyNurse @BillWongOT yes i would say that competance is vital no point in being comapssionate but incompetant #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:28:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AgencyNurse @BAOTCOT For example, I wouldn’t want an OT to treat me who doesn’t know too much about autism. #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:29:07 +0100)

@Helen_otuk RT @AgencyNurse : @BillWongOT yes i would say that competence is vital no point in being compassionate but incompetent #OTalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:30:42 +0100)

@fullyOccupied #OTalk and this is where having, and showing, ‘compassion’ beats ‘caring’ for me perhaps?(Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:31:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @AgencyNurse As for commitment, we must give our best to our clients and our colleagues! #otalk (Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:31:24 +0100)

Arts and Crafts in Modern OT #Occhat

Hosted and Summary written by @Gilliancrossley
Arts and Crafts in Modern OT #Occhat 11th September, 2012

Thanks to all who joined in the chat.

@clissa89, @BillWongOT, @Kirstyes, @fullyoccupied, @HelenOTUK, @xJessicaKate18, @RedTedArt, @ShortShannon8, @AOTAinc, @LeonoraOT, @Lottie01.

This was a great #occhat and the topic generated lots of interest and it seems clear that Arts and Crafts our still important tools in the OT toolbox. Tweeters shared many examples of how these used arts and crafts in their OT practice and discussed many factors which should be considered when using them.
I would usually separate the tweets into themes, however the discussion was lively and the topics and themes often interlinked. It seems more appropriate to keep the chat in order of flow. I have highlighted some key points throughout.
There was some discussion about linking the theory to practice, and justifying the use of crafts with clients. Also overcoming barriers, such as other professions not understanding, and the skill level required of the occupational therapist.
@gilliancrossley
#occhat does anybody use arts and crafts in their OT practice? how and why? if not why not?
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:07:49 +0000)
@xJessicaKate18x
#occhat i find arts and crafts great in theory but not so in practice
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:08:21 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley i love arts and crafts for my own leisure, so think this influences my use of it in practice#occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:08:56 +0000)
@xJessicaKate18x
#occhat I find other professionals and pts families do not understand the therapeutic value of arts and crafts
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:09:38 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley I would answer the why not part- because I suck at it! I got F’s in arts and crafts when I was a kiddo. :p #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:10:00 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley creative activities very versatile&gradable. ticks Pleasure, Productivity and Restoration (pierce) boxes for me #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:10:05 +0000)

@clissa89
@xJessicaKate18x think this is the case for a lot of our interventions – important to be clear in our own minds & articulate #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:10:48 +0000)

@clissa89
@xJessicaKate18x creative activities shouldnt be given as blanket intervention, but know some clients have found it v meaningful #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:11:37 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@clissa89 I feel the same! do you think that maybe OT who don’t have an interest maybe don’t? what type of setting? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:11:38 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley i wonder what influences our interests in creative activities? perceived skill? gender roles? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:12:20 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@BillWongOT But what if it is meaningful to your client? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:12:24 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x well… at USC, we actually tried to emphasize that throughout the Skills Theory 1 class that we have. #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:12:44 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley crafts seem to be really popular atm. seeing lots of community groups: eg knit & natter, stitch & b*tch #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:12:55 +0000)
@fullyOccupied
#occhat have folk seen Fidler & Velde- activities:reality and symbol? http://t.co/iMN1NjTG -bit Old now, but some lovely material re A&C
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:13:03 +0000)

@xJessicaKate18x
#occhat @clissa89 I have begun developing tools re. client perceived meaningful. enjoyment, productivity etc
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:13:50 +0000)

@BillWongOT

@gilliancrossley I will switch it up with a therapist who’s better at this, or I will cheat by asking my mom to teach me b4 hand. #occhat

(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:14:29 +0000)
Examples of use in practice – various client groups and settings. Use as a communication aid and examples of clients teaching OT the skills they enjoy. The importance of meaningful occupation not just doing for the sake of doing.

@Helen_otuk
@BillWongOT I too am not an ‘arty’ person and my role does not call for it often. But i have used with children or those with 1/2 #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:14:29 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@clissa89 @xJessicaKate18x #occhat I agree. we need to justify intervention, but often not understood by other hp’s
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:14:43 +0000)

@clissa89
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley sometimes i’ve had clients teach me how to do crafts that they enjoy :)#occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:15:25 +0000)

@fullyOccupied
@clissa89 #occhat it’s a book – lots of other activities discussed but the symbolism and relevance of A&C covered in some specific chapters
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:15:26 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@fullyOccupied that looks great! I will put that on my want list! #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:15:35 +0000)

@xJessicaKate18x
#occhat I have found arts and crafts and music therapy to be particularly useful with pmld adults/children
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:15:53 +0000)

@Helen_otuk
comms issues to help me understand likes / dislikes esp. when designing adaptations etc #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:16:17 +0000)

@clissa89
#occhat i enjoy scrapbooking, knitting, painting, drawing… probably lots more… but not particularly skilled.
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:16:37 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@clissa89 crafts seem to be making a come back! Pinterest is great for ideas! #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:16:39 +0000)

@clissa89
@fullyOccupied can you remember anything about symbolism that you can share? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:17:03 +0000)

@fullyOccupied
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley #occhat maybe learning something together or having service user teach you could be v powerful and equalising?
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:17:12 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
is arts and crafts associated with a particular client group? #occhat . I have never seen in practice outside of mental health
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:17:45 +0000)
@clissa89
#occhat RT @xJessicaKate18x : @clissa89 I too love scrapbooking and have found it v useful re. clients and memory work
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:18:09 +0000)

@fullyOccupied
@gilliancrossley #occhat it’s one of my fave -‘ let’s get a burst of new enthusiasm’ sources!
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:18:19 +0000)
Practice examples continued in relation to various client groups, some things in included: Sensory, fine motor, memory, social skills, self esteem, transition, flow and wellbeing.
Some discussion regards age/ skill appropriateness.
@clissa89
@RedTedArt what kind of crafts do you enjoy? what do you get out of them? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:18:25 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
But see the value for wellbeing, mental health as well as for fine motor skills etc.. #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:18:30 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@clissa89 @gilliancrossley I guess that’s y I stick with being a researcher instead of a clinician… lol!#notmuchpatienceforcrafts #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:19:19 +0000)

@clissa89
@xJessicaKate18x what is meaning for you re scrapbooking? for me it’s about reminiscence, quiet reflection, creative expression #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:19:25 +0000)
@RedTedArt
@clissa89 Oooooh now how long is a piece of string πŸ™‚ could go on all day, are speaking kids or in general? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:19:38 +0000)

@clissa89
@xJessicaKate18x i love the product that i get from scrapbooking – in a way i get to shape & share my memories, if that makes sense #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:20:12 +0000)

@clissa89
@RedTedArt in general πŸ™‚ whatever you like! #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:20:23 +0000)

Building the therapeutic relationship

@gilliancrossley
@fullyOccupied @BillWongOT very powerful! engaging in occupation together for building therapeutic relationship #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:20:24 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@fullyOccupied @gilliancrossley That would be for some higher functioning clients. If it’s lower functioning, I would avoid it. #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:20:30 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley i’ve used them in MH and LD. can see potential in other areas but maybe these lend themselves to more holistic? #occhat

@xJessicaKate18x
@clissa89 #occhat exactly! and that is what I try and capture with clients, as well as a sense of identity and purpose
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:21:17 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@gilliancrossley @fullyOccupied I guess for someone like me, that will be NOT afraid to be embarrassed. :p #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:21:26 +0000)

@shortshannon88
@gilliancrossley #occhat I used arts and crafts w pediatrics to work on many different things from fine motor to hand eye coordination.
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:21:35 +0000)

@Helen_otuk

Agree RT @clissa89 : ive used them in MH and LD. can see potential in other areas but maybe these lend themselves to more holistic? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:21:43 +0000)

@RedTedArt

@clissa89 I love the process of creating -you take bits & pieces,often “”rubbish”” &the next thing you have made something wonderful #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:21:51 +0000)
Some discussion about the types of materials used, for example adding scent to fabric memory books, use of recycled goods. Being aware of infection control policy when using recycling and how an activity can be made age appropriate with careful consideration of the materials used.

@RedTedArt
@clissa89 I do like recycled based crafts or foraged πŸ™‚ #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:22:08 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@clissa89 @xJessicaKate18x I am currently making fabric memory books out of old footbal tops for my son so he can take when we move #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:22:27 +0000)

@clissa89
@RedTedArt i think recycled/upcycled adds whole new layer of meaning/purpose. seems to be becoming very popular #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:22:34 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @clissa89 of course… if I were your client, I will say, “”I would rather do math problems all day than crafts.”” #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:22:51 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley lovely πŸ™‚ think my love of scrapbooking/mini books related to frequent transitions – like transitional objects #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:10 +0000)

@Helen_otuk
For me ‘in practice’ limited but use as a communication aid / ice breaker when working with children esp.#occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:19 +0000)

@xJessicaKate18x
#occhat arts and crafts is being left out as it doesn’t fit with the results based practice required by the nhs/private organsisations
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:22 +0000)

@clissa89
@gilliancrossley @xJessicaKate18x think scrapbooking (and other crafts) can be way of processing emotions/thoughts too #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:33 +0000)

@xJessicaKate18x
@clissa89 #occhat I know OT’s who would love to do arts and crafts but do not have the time and resources
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:47 +0000)

@kirstyes
@clissa89 @gilliancrossley Used in Physical rehab settings too – ‘heavy’ workshops. But less frequent.#occhat

@fullyOccupied
#occhat ‘the things with which people interact R not simply tools 4survival, …things embody goals…&shape the identity of their users’1/2
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:54 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@clissa89 @xJessicaKate18x I was thinking that fabric books could be used and smells added for reminisence. transition, grief, etc #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:23:57 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@clissa89 @xJessicaKate18x speaking of reminiscence, it reminds me of some #NBCOT questions about ind. w/ dementia and Alzehimer’s #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:24:10 +0000)

@Helen_otuk
Also a way to include ‘children’ when designing adaptations. Can build a relationship around visual work. (if that makes sense) #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:24:19 +0000)

@kirstyes
Wonder if links to creativity and also often flow based activities. Like @clissa89 said easily graded for just right challenge #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:24:52 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
@Helen_otuk #occhat so you use as a communication tool with certain individuals? #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:25:12 +0000)

@BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x in US, I would say common places for arts and crafts are in pediatrics and inpatient mental health. #occhat
(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:25:32 +0000)

@clissa89

@RedTedArt love the way that crafts can be used to make functional items e.g. furniture, decorations, outfits – and save money #occhat

(Tue, 11 Sep 2012 19:30:13 +0000)

@gilliancrossley
Not just about using a craft but still need to be appropriate and meaningful occupation. culturally, age, etc#occhat

#OTalk 18th September 2012- #DLA migration to #PIP, with guest host @BendyGirl

#OTalk with @BendyGirl!

This week the #OTalk crew were lucky enough to be able to draw on the expertise of one of the UK’s most prominent and effective campaigners about welfare reform, Kaliya Franklin, who Tweets as @BendyGirl.

What are #DLA and #PIP?

Disability Living Allowance or DLA is a benefit designed to help disabled people meet the extra costs that are related to operating with a disability in a society that is still far from fully accessible. It has two elements, one for Care, one for Mobility, and people can receive different amounts depending on their level of need. It is paid to people in work and currently not working- it is not means tested. Indeed, even multi-millionaires such as David Cameron (the Prime Minister) have claimed this benefit. He claimed on behalf of a disabled dependent, possibly as it also acts as a gateway benefit to other facilities for disabled people, such as bus passes or “Blue Badges” that are needed to park in Disabled parking bays. The new PIP benefit has stricter qualification criteria, and many disabled people are fearful that their meagre benefits will be reduced below subsistence levels.

Why do OTs need to know about #DLA and #PIP?

We wanted to learn more about how the proposed changes to the disability benefit DLA (Disability Living Allowance). The Government is going to replace this with the new PIP (Personal Independence Payment), and they would like OTs to be at the forefront of assessment for this new benefit. However, the OT community has not been very vocal about what they feel about this change, which has far-reaching implications for the lives of disabled people. The stated aim of the change is to remove any element of fostering dependency from within the welfare system, but the Government expects to reduce the claimant count by 20% by performing this change. Current rates of fraud within the DLA system stand at 0.5%.

Essential #OTalk Tweets

I have selected an entirely subjective selection of Tweets that I feel illustrate the tone of the chat and some of the opinions, if you’re in a quick break, this is your 5 minute summary of an hour long conversation!

If you have about 40 minutes, I recommend getting a cup of tea and reading the full archive of the chat as there was so much useful information shared. You can find it below.

The Grabchat

Scroll down to read the full archived chat to enjoy the #OTalk experience if you missed it- it was great to have such a range of different voices in the chat, including many different HCP as well as OTs and disabled people and carers.
