@Keeper85 @OTalk_Occhat @Th00ha @BillWongOT giddyup! #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:12:25 +0000)
@lottie01 #OTalk I think CPD often is perceived to be a very “wordy” activity but visual-ality, in my opinion makes it more fun and exciting(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:12:28 +0000)
@BillWongOT @OTAshbert That’s a pretty cool way to do it. Should think of that element when I do my autoethnography! Thanks. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:12:30 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life got a note? #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:12:41 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @merrolee what is your research about? I’m not familiar with SDL acronym #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:12:56 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Keeper85 @gilliancrossley well… check out the CPD4OT group will probably help ya. πŸ˜‰ #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:13:30 +0000)
@Th00ha @OTAshbert yes. it’s an excellent way of keeping track of things. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:13:32 +0000)

@merrolee RT @OTalk_Occhat : @merrolee what is your research about? I’m not familiar with SDL acronym #OTalk – Self-directed learning(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:14:17 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @OTAshbert Definitely. I find visual documentation can portray thought processes and development more accurately than written text #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:14:25 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat #OTalk What are some creative ways that you could plot and document your own journey? What would your journey look like? #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:14:35 +0000)

@clissa89 @OTalk_Occhat I have seen career narratives/journeys that look quite similar to the longitudinal Kawa River – on my to do list! #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:16:51 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life #OTalk I am a muti-sensory learner.. As a result of my attention challenges.(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:17:10 +0000)
@Th00ha @OTAshbert it can also help identity where we can expand. Explore more ways of doing CPD using different medias. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:17:24 +0000)
@lottie01 Ive struggled to find ideas to think through my #OT experiences for my appraisal evidence & your visual representation helped loads #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:17:32 +0000)
@BillWongOT @merrolee @OTalk_Occhat yup… SDL is also important for being placement students. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:17:35 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @OTAshbert yes mind maps is often how I do thinks… but like to have variety. #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:17:50 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @OTAshbert @Helen_otuk I used a mind map in my VXpres to show otalk/cpd/leadership #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:18:18 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @OTAshbert @Helen_otuk I’ve used mind maps a lot for placement CPD. Great way to demonstrate how my knowledge/skills have developed #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:18:29 +0000)
@merrolee RT @BillWongOT : yup… SDL is also imp for students. #otalk agree it starts with students, but many OT not aware of how they learn(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:18:33 +0000)

@BillWongOT @OTAshbert @gilliancrossley I am a visual learner, too… as I found out in OT. No wonder Statistics didn’t fit me well in undergrad. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:19:02 +0000)

@clissa89 @lottie01 can you share some examples of how you represented CPD visually? #OT #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:19:26 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @OTAshbert yes I have been exploring new visual ways to record. I like mind maps on my iPad and can play like a vid #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:19:34 +0000)
@merrolee RT @ BillWongOT: #otalk many OT not aware of how they learn – tends not to be researched nor talked about.. assume we all can do!(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:19:41 +0000)

@Symbolic_Life #OTalk I should start my CPD… :-/.(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:20:04 +0000)
@Th00ha @OTalk_Occhat I like doing something like a family tree of CPD, see areas where I could branch out. #otalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:20:15 +0000)
@kirstyes @OTAshbert The Glasgow tube! #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:20:20 +0000)

@Keeper85 #Otalk I find that a lot of ppl limit their CPD because they only think of CPD as big, $οΏ½?οΏ½, training courses. Ppl need to open their minds(Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:20:40 +0000)
@lottie01 We all have a preference for a certain type of learning but varying the way we learn makes things more interesting #OTalk (Tue, 27 Nov 2012 20:20:42 +0000)

#OTalk – Continuing Professional Development: “Getting on Board”

Ashley Bilen will be hosting tonight’s #OTalk entitled “Getting on Board”. I was very interested to see her poster at COT2012 which displayed her knowledge and skills in the format of a tube map. Here it is:Β Getting_20on_20Board[1][1]

“At 2012 Conference, I presented a poster entitled ‘Getting on Board’, exploring the skills I’d developed through volunteering as student member of the Membership & External Affairs Board at COT. I was pleased to discover how many skills related to the professional requirements of the NHS Knowledge & Skills Framework.

There are many ways to become more involved with the world of OT, whether it’s through social media, being an active member of a group, a specialist section or writing an article, amongst other things.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget about the experience we have and the skills we’ve gained through doing everyday things, whether it’s through OT involvement or via other projects. I wanted to make people think about their unique skills and how they’re relevant to their professional development. ”

 

#occhat Nov 20th 2012- equipment and occupation

Why Equipment?

One of the things that non-OTs associate us with is the issuing of equipment, and indeed, facilitating occupation through the use of adaptive equipment is a key part of our OT role.

Assistive Equipment is simple, isn’t it?

But there are lots of instances where trained support workers, physios and nurses now offer equipment- and if it speeds up discharge and enables people to get back home quicker what’s the harm? We’ve encountered OTs in our careers who were sure that issuing equipment was solely the preserve of the OT in the team, as well as lots of other OTs who are happy to train team members to know when to ask for specialist input and when to issue simple equipment themselves. Who is right?

Personalisation

The personalisation agenda is now a huge consideration in equipment and adaptations. The expertise of some OTs when it comes to use of non-traditional equipment such as iPads and apps is a huge area for educationalists and OTs in practice to address- it’s not enough to send our new graduates out with a copy of Nottingham Rehab Supplies anymore!

Ablism

We also have to recognise the inherent ablism in some of our equipment prescriptions. We have to consider the individual in their environment- how will their family react to all this equipment? Will it mark them out as vulnerable? Does having a visible markers of disability increase their vulnerability to disability hate crimes?

COT/Boots Partnership

We also discussed some of the issues surrounding the partnership of COT with Boots, the high street pharmacy and retailer. Thoughts about this are still developing in our community- we recognise the advantage of promoting our services to a wide audience but also hae concerns about whether this promotion really shows OT as the holistic and client-centred profession we all love. As you’ll see in the Grabchat, we did have a comment from COT about the partnership- they confirm they did not financially profit from this arrangement. I’m sure we will come back to this topic again, do leave further comments on the blog or contact us on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest.

The #occhat community

It was wonderful to see so many new chatters to our chat last night- both OTs brave enough to speak out (WELL DONE!) and people with lived experience of using equipment to facilitate occupations (GREAT TO SEE YOU!). We really want to make sure you feel welcome to join in with our chats, so we will try to welcome you individually and thank you for your contribution. We want to make sure we’re following you all so that we can continue the conversation outside of chat times. We’re actively planning to increase the resources we offer to help people to take the brave step of taking part in our Twitter conversations- do get in touch if you have any ideas and opinions about this.

On to the chat!

@Subimaginati Does anyone find that councils in particular tend to go for “one item suits everyone” approaches? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 17:11:55 +0000)

@Helen_otuk Well welcome everyone, this evening we would like to explore the link between equipment and occupations. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:06:14 +0000)
@alilou250969 #occhat hi listening from the sideline(Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:06:42 +0000)
@BillWongOT @DoAbility I think a key thing is to look at what occupations a client values the most. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:07:25 +0000)
@Helen_otuk So my first question is what do you include in your definition of equipment? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:07:39 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @DoAbility I feel the most important are that it is safe to use and it meets the clients need #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:07:51 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @alilou250969 welcome, do join in if you have any thoughts.

@DoAbility @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly we’ve been talking to a lot of young people who feel old style walkers are actually a barrier to mobility #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:11:31 +0000)
@uk_james @Helen_otuk should also include communication aids, often not seen as “equipment” in the traditional OT sense by local authorities #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:11:48 +0000)

@BillWongOT @DoAbility @CharOTReilly yes, that’s why I think as occupational therapy professionals, we should give them options. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:12:43 +0000)

@Helen_otuk So we have a great range of ‘items’ that we count as equipment? Yes? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:14:28 +0000)
@uk_james @alilou250969 that’s exactly it. One of my relatives had an iPad funded via a direct payment for access capabilities #lifechanging #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:14:35 +0000)

@Helen_otuk @alilou250969 that is great to hear. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:14:50 +0000)
@allisulli @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @DoAbility I think it’s essential whether it has value to the client. “Meeting whose need?” is good ? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:14:56 +0000)
@uk_james @Helen_otuk certainly do. Practitioners need to be open minded about what constitutes equipment in era of #personalisation #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:15:39 +0000)
@gilliancrossley sometimes equipment can be overused and over relied upon. this can become disabling #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:15:45 +0000)
@DoAbility @CharOTReilly @BillWongOT that was just an example…… we’re trying to help bring mobility equipment forward… always learning #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:16:21 +0000)

@uk_james @gilliancrossley yes, or used as a compensatory approach / poor alternative to good rehab #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:16:54 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @Helen_otuk yes agreed Helen, we have a variety of equipment #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:17:08 +0000)
@Keeper85 @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @DoAbility isn’t that putting limits on our clients by sayin that? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:17:13 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @uk_james exactly! or family/ client etc can desire the equip that they have seen others with… even though it is wrong for them #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:18:11 +0000)

@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley Definitely agree. I think it can also lead to MDTs thinking all OTs do is px equipment. Which obviously isn’t true #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:18:51 +0000)
@uk_james @Keeper85 @billwongot @charotreilly @doability seen it happen myself,poor assessment = poor recommendation – not personalised #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:18:59 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley That’s why I think it’s important to work on trying to rebuild the client’s abilities first b4 prescribing. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:19:04 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @gilliancrossley great point. thats why it needs to be prescribed/recommended with caution & sound clinical reasoning #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:19:15 +0000)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @DoAbility and I think it’s important for us to get exposed to them as students. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:19:37 +0000)
@DoAbility @CharOTReilly thankyou – we’ve been looking at better ways to communicate… so glad to find #occhat #love2learn (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:19:45 +0000)
@Helen_otuk So we have this large range of ‘equipment’ which can be life changing to disabling? That is some spectrum! 1/2 #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:20:12 +0000)
@Keeper85 @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley is that occupational therapy? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:20:21 +0000)
@uk_james @Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley that’s true, although think perceptions may be changing now #reablement now common in #socialcare #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:20:36 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT yes I agree, however there is often a cost element and it can be easier to offer equipment. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:20:40 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @CharOTReilly I do think equipment needs to be understood. not necessarily always by an OT but by someone trained #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:21:41 +0000)
@uk_james @gilliancrossley @billwongot or just because there are gaps in rehab services #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:21:45 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @Keeper85 @BillWongOT is what OT? equip or rebuilding ability? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:22:20 +0000)
@DoAbility @gilliancrossley yes, you’re right – difficult to find the balance sometimes? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:22:36 +0000)
@Helen_otuk 2/2 How do we assess along this spectrum? disabling to life changing? Do we use occupation? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:22:41 +0000)
@uk_james @gilliancrossley @charotreilly which brings in the concept of Trusted Assessors and the like #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:22:44 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @Helen_otuk that is a large spectrum, and there seems 2 b little evidence base out there 4 equipment 2 help us decide what is right #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:23:07 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Keeper85 @gilliancrossley I was mentioning it cuz sometimes we have to see if the client regains some ROM, for example. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:23:07 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @uk_james @Cathy_OT yes, I do hope perceptions are changing. I think occupation has to be at the forefront if OTs are prescribing #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:23:32 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @CharOTReilly I think that depends on your ‘framework’ and ‘assessment’ #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:24:19 +0000)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @Helen_otuk yes, but can’t we use assessment results to help in regards to our clinical reasoning? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:24:25 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @DoAbility yes, we do have to work within resources and equipment can often be an easy way to achieve a goal/ maintain safety #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:24:41 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Keeper85 @gilliancrossley I think you misunderstood what I meant. I didn’t mean that. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:01 +0000)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley Also ppl provided w equip like hearing aids that they don’t like to use/ won’t but tx is based on this assumption #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:38 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @uk_james @gilliancrossley which others in MDT, could give equipment, physio possibly? #trustedassessors #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:38 +0000)
@uk_james @CharOTReilly @helen_otuk equipment evidence doesn’t seem to quite have same robust evidence base as say drugs or other medical Rx #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:43 +0000)
@COTSSTO @Helen_otuk this is so true. Idealy there would be time to rehab & id long term needs rather than prempt which can limit recovery. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:54 +0000)
@Keeper85 @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley is that OT? Because it sounds like physio? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:25:57 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @Keeper85 @BillWongOT yes if the equipment is necessary, for the person to engage in occupations. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:26:02 +0000)

@Helen_otuk What do people feel are the ‘key’ elements to ensuring individuals occupational needs are addressed when considering equipment? #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:27:26 +0000)
@uk_james @CharOTReilly @gilliancrossley list is long….. Nurses, social workers, unregistered workers, home care providers, care navigators #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:27:27 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Keeper85 @gilliancrossley well, that’s what I see in hand therapy settings. equipment decisions are made just b4 d/c. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:27:48 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @CharOTReilly @uk_james physio, assistants, technicians.. I think its about the training to be able to provide #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:27:59 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @zzzoooman @Helen_otuk yes I think complimentary is a good way to explain it! I think its about getting the balance #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:29:00 +0000)
@CharOTReilly thats true @uk_james @Helen_otuk why do you think that is? Equipment can be as effective/as dangerous as drugs ect.. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:29:02 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk I think testing out will be important to see if they like it. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:29:03 +0000)

@OTalk_Occhat @BillWongOT hi Bill, yes, one size doesn’t fit everybody- how. Do we stay holistic when issuing equipment? #occhat @doability @charotreilly (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:35:00 +0000)

@Cathy_OT @allisulli @gilliancrossley @uk_james Definitely. And the need to consider perception and how that may influence equipment use #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:43:01 +0000)

@uk_james @HandyOTJO @otalk_occhat think that’s true in some cases. Needs to be unobvious. Case for better/ sexier designed kit #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:44:42 +0000)
@allisulli @OTalk_Occhat @gilliancrossley See people w equipment they don’t like/won’t use – hearing aids, glasses, splints. Life goes on #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:44:58 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden sometimes equipment is over prescribed by well meaning people, they can than be a real tripping hazzard #Occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:00 +0000)
@virtualOTalex awareness of cognition when assessing for equipment is core and so often neglected by physios, nurses, it can be surpisingly complex #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:03 +0000)
@DoAbility Definitely. Do you think supermarkets should sell specialist equipment? @uk_james @OTalk_Occhat @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:06 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat ? @HandyOTJO : @OTalk_Occhat patients who see equipment as a sign they are disabled therefore won’t use. #occhat ? <research shows this, too(Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:11 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @uk_james in my experience this is for smaller (lower cost) items. Larger (more costly) not so available on prescription. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:37 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @BillWongOT @uk_james @DoAbility @OTalk_Occhat its bcause equipment directly affects persons occupations, so makes part OT role #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:45:57 +0000)

@jfaias @OTalk_Occhat feels like getting to meeting point and everybody left, after running all day long against a delay. #occhat (Tue, 20 Nov 2012 23:50:32 +0000)
@BillWongOT RT @_beckyOT : We need to do more to rehab and re-able our service users rather than rely on equipment #Occhat (better late than never!)(Wed, 21 Nov 2012 00:42:24 +0000)

@BillWongOT @cskies @Keeper85 @KerstinGadsden That can get blurry if u have personal experiences- cuz r u acting as an OT or a fellow consumer? #occhat (Wed, 21 Nov 2012 00:45:04 +0000)

Tonight’s #Occhat is about how equipment can help us to live the life we want to. Claire has set out some initial thoughts on her blog, reposted here. Do join us on Twitter tonight between 8pm and 9pm to discuss the topic- what do you think equipment helps you to do? What things would you never use a piece of equipment for? Do you think issung equipment is an OT role, or are you happy to share this aspect of practice with trained TIs or even physios? Add #occhat to your Tweets so we can read them- see you there!

Claireot's Blog

I’m in the hotseat for the #occhat Twitter discussion tonight- and it’s been a while since I was able to facilitate, so I am looking forward to it and feeling anxious about it in equal measure!

WhyΒ are we looking at equipment?

One of our core skills as OTs is the prescription of environmental adaptations including adaptive equipment, so of course, we’re always interested in gadgets and things to make life easier.

As a disabled woman, I’m very grateful for some of the equipment that has become part of my everyday life, like my mobility scooter, or my bed stick. But equipment is much broader than just the stuff you can get through your local equipment store.

I consider my eye-Pad to be one of the best bits of adaptive equipment I have. It’s a multi-functional entertainment system, so if I’m ill, I can watch TV in bed, or catch up…

@cumbrianclaire @Richardsblister Hi Karen! I was in the NoE community team! #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:10:57 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden I am assuming that if you use CBT in order to enable someone to do what they want to do you than there is a place for it in OT #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:10:58 +0000)
@clissa89 @adiemusfree thanks for the link, will check it out πŸ™‚ #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:04 +0000)
@adiemusfree ACT involves being aware of unpleasant feelings/thoughts but remaining committed to doing what is valued #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:20 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @Richardsblister Sounds great. #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:25 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden @clissa89 indeed, even in a physical setting you look at psychological factors surely #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:35 +0000)
@adiemusfree If thoughts are getting in the way of doing then it’s something we should do #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:40 +0000)
@clissa89 @adiemusfree “…doing what is valued”! sounds occupation-focused to me #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:11:52 +0000)

@cumbrianclaire @OTalk_Occhat There’s a lot of early chatter about CBT. Is this the most common approach people have experienced? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:17 +0000)
@HandyOTJO @adiemusfree @clissa89 we can’t! It’s what OTs do. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:29 +0000)
@Richardsblister Don’t we all find that as OT’s that we often challenge thinking? #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:34 +0000)
@adiemusfree @KerstinGadsden absolutely need to look at how people think/emote during occupation irrespective of “diagnosis” #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:37 +0000)
@MrsHaighOT #otalk had interesting talk from our clinical psych last week re children, and behaviour and safety measures in the home(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:46 +0000)
@BillWongOT @KerstinGadsden @clissa89 I agree… it is embedded in all #OT practice settings. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:48 +0000)
@adiemusfree CBT to me is a generic tool for all clinicians #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:12:58 +0000)

@pd2ot @cumbrianclaire I have more experience with DBT (as a SU) #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:13:51 +0000)
@HandyOTJO @cumbrianclaire yes. Use with hand trauma patients and LT conditions like RA. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:13:52 +0000)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 @adiemusfree are you referring to “occupation as means and ends”? #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:14:03 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @HandyOTJO How interesting. Do you have any thoughts on why it fits in with OT philosophy? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:14:05 +0000)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 yes I did very insightful however favour SBT #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:14:16 +0000)
@adiemusfree perhaps not “as therapy” but embedded “in therapy” and to facilitate people to engage in occupation
#otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:14:19 +0000)
@clissa89 @HandyOTJO that’s interesting πŸ™‚ I was only really aware of CBT in mental health and chronic fatigue/pain #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:14:49 +0000)

@cumbrianclaire @pd2ot I had a placement as a student where DBT was used. Do you have a link handy for your blog on your experiences of OT & DBT? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:16 +0000)
@adiemusfree Important to know that psychological approaches include behaviour change – is this not important part of occupation? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:19 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @pd2ot I thought that blog was great! #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:27 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden @clissa89 that argument could be used if we give equipment out too, we don’t use occupation as therapy as such than #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:33 +0000)
@clissa89 @cumbrianclaire I do! http://t.co/s5D72Gzp @pd2ot #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:34 +0000)

@beingyourdoing Evening all #otalk . Motivational Interviewing is important for me. All interactions with patients guided by it.(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:46 +0000)
@HandyOTJO @Nnikki_Duffy sorry to be ignorant. What is SBT? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:46 +0000)
@kirstyes #OTalk sorry all, have to flake tonight. Feeling poorly. Happy chatting. Off to make some soup.(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:47 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @Keeper85 @adiemusfree If you are talking about that, I think Gray (1998) article is a good reference. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:47 +0000)
@Richardsblister I agree, it is embedded, “I can’t engage in that occupation because I am rubbish at everything” – OT..really? lets challenge that #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:57 +0000)
@adiemusfree Also behavioural analysis – how an occupation functions in a person’s life, and what influences occupational engagement #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:15:57 +0000)

@KerstinGadsden @Richardsblister I mean just adjustment to civvystreet can be very traumatic and needs a lot of adjustment #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:28:22 +0000)
@alilou250969 @clissa89 #OTalk yes (think so) apologies for my vagueness(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:28:24 +0000)
@HandyOTJO @clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy evidence is overwhelming in it’s benefit for all! Hence doing a course myself. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:28:29 +0000)
@clissa89 @adiemusfree A lot of what we do in OT can look like Y approaches – but with training perhaps we can use more structured/consistently #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:28:37 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @OTalk_Occhat I believed being an OT was fundamental in being able to work with veterans. I could be more flexible than a CBT bod #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:28:42 +0000)
@clissa89 @AndreaStudentOT oh I see! are you asking how Motivational Interviewing relates to the Remotivation Process? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:05 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden @Richardsblister partially absolutely, but sometimes once out , only than they may permit themselves to think of past events #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:13 +0000)
@Nnikki_Duffy @HandyOTJO solution based therapy, focusing on solutions rather then problems #otalk @clissa89 (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:17 +0000)
@adiemusfree goal setting doesn’t always elicit personal motivation, and clinician not always directive – MI enables this to be explicit #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:23 +0000)

@Richardsblister @cumbrianclaire they do respond well to OT here, but I was trained on CBT by an OT! #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:36 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @adiemusfree @HandyOTJO I’m sure there’s research into CBT being used more often with psychosis. Help anyone? #otalk ( @OTalk_Occhat )(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:29:40 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @Richardsblister Are you an OT & CBT? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:30:04 +0000)
@clissa89 @HandyOTJO I wonder if @adiemusfree has come across CBT in acute physical hospital wards? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:30:10 +0000)
@adiemusfree yes getting competent in “psychological” skills strengthens how we ‘do’ occupational therapy #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:30:17 +0000)

@dailyskills Hi All. I got here as soon as I could – looks like a great conversation happening. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:14 +0000)
@Richardsblister @cumbrianclaire I am an OT who uses cbt in stages throughout treatment, such as 1:1 therapy when getting some goal set etc #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:16 +0000)
@adiemusfree not seen CBT much used in acute phys but I do it everywhere now/embedded so wd do it anyway #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:19 +0000)
@BillWongOT @adiemusfree yes… I agree. MI enable clients to think goals that are meaningful to them, IMO #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:29 +0000)
@adiemusfree RT @HandyOTJO : @adiemusfree @clissa89 the best thing Ive recently discovered! #mindfulness Wish it was used more in phys setting #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:31 +0000)
@clissa89 @cumbrianclaire that’s a really valuable point & one I Know you’ve made before – we have wider “tools” #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:36 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @RobWebster_LCH Any tips on how we do that? I have ventured into a non-traditional role which is showing commissioners 1/2 #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:45 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden @BPDFFS very true…no 2 people will be the same, therefore our approaches to treatment need to be in tune with our client #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:46 +0000)
@roberTO_OT @adiemusfree I agree that I have to look into MI #OTalk more deeply, but I feel I do it applying a CCP & strengths-based approach(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:31:55 +0000)

@clissa89 @cumbrianclaire @adiemusfree @HandyOTJO yes there’s a specific form of CBT for psychosis – CBTp #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:32:58 +0000)
@adiemusfree don’t forget psychology is also about behaviour, what reinforces/punishes behaviour, what elicits change – how is that not OT? #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:33:17 +0000)
@clissa89 @cumbrianclaire according to my reading, CBT used mostly in mental health and chronic pain/fatigue. not seen anything more specific #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:33:25 +0000)
@cumbrianclaire @clissa89 We do (& mucky boots helped too) #otalk No-one else uses themselves as a tool during intervention!!!(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:33:47 +0000)

@Richardsblister @clissa89 when i worked in acute we would start a client on cbt and then continue once discharged #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:03 +0000)

@Keeper85 @adiemusfree are u saying we’re the same? :-p #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:38 +0000)
@adiemusfree @clissa89 CBT used wherever clin psych & health psych are so evidence base is very wide everywhere #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:45 +0000)
@KerstinGadsden question, is CBT used in Eating Disorders? #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:48 +0000)
@dailyskills @Keeper85 @adiemusfree to do an official CBT program takes weeks, but incorporating into your other approaches in acute is worthwhile #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:49 +0000)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS that’s a really good point Sue – approach/model choice depending on service user need #Otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:34:56 +0000)

@adiemusfree CBT doesn’t have to be the whole hog – just eliciting AT’s and suggesting “noticing” them while doing is a good thing #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:35:19 +0000)
@adiemusfree “Official” CBT programme can also be quite brief #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:35:47 +0000)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 @adiemusfree yes there are definitely issues with running CBT programmes in acute – but can be modified & use skills #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:35:50 +0000)

@adiemusfree @KerstinGadsden absolutely!! used in eating disorders #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:36:17 +0000)
@BillWongOT @MariWardahp but I do think sometimes having a peer mentor can help, as client can see how the mentor get to where he/she is now. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:36:23 +0000)
@tileym These links to resources are really helpful #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:36:27 +0000)

@cumbrianclaire @HandyOTJO @clissa89 There’s a set formula to CBT & set sessions so could be adapted. Or using CBT principles to guide what you do #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:36:34 +0000)
@Richardsblister @cumbrianclaire sorry i missed your post,…. #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:36:46 +0000)

@clissa89 #OTalk MT @OTEllenN : Too many OTs abandon occupation for approaches like CBT/DBT.Not opposed per se, just must be occupation focused.(Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:13:09 +0000)
@allisulli @Keeper85 @clissa89 yes. Failure-free programming is akin to errorless learning. It helps to establish threshold for success. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:14:43 +0000)
@OTEllenN @Keeper85 @clissa89 “Occupation as means, occupation as ends”! My mantra, grateful thanks to Jean Gray. #OTalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:14:43 +0000)
@allisulli @OTEllenN @clissa89 @Keeper85 Failure-free is really important for allowing exploration of new occupations via preparatory methods. #otalk (Tue, 13 Nov 2012 22:16:45 +0000)

#OTalk/#Occhat – An Idea Whose Time Had Come

A group of Occupational Therapists (OT’s) had been participating in tweetchats including #phdchat (PhD researchers chat) and #nhssm (social media in the NHS) for some time. OTs had been utilising the #OTuesday hashtag to share insights into the daily activities of an OT. Chris Genter floated the idea of a more occupation focussed twitter chat.Once Chris suggested the idea, we felt the time had come to utilise the potential of Twitter and create an online public facing forum for talking about our practice and the theory that underpins it. A Twitter account, Facebook page and blog were set up in September/October 2011.

#OTalk/#Occhat was quickly up and running. The use of two hashtags enables a distinction to be made between chats that focus specifically on OT practice issues (#OTalk) and chats that explore occupational science issues (#Occhat). This has the added benefit of opening the discussion to a wider audience outside of the OT profession. The first #OTalk twitter chat, β€œOur identity as OTs and how we explain our role” was held on 25th October 2011. The following week, we launched #Occhat and explored Occupational Science and what it means to us. An archive of these and many more chats can be found on the blog.

Analytics from Healthcare Hashtags has shown that #OTalk has engaged 423 participants making 9423 tweets that have reached 8,159,709 people. #Occhat has seen 226 individuals generate 6780 tweets with 5,145,181 impressions. The numbers are very encouraging, however these do not demonstrate the value of the experience when joining in the chats. Here is what participants have had to say:

#OTalk and #Occhat have contributed to the development of a community of practice in a public forum. We love that this is such a mixed and diverse community in terms of experience and this is reflected in the make-up of the organisational team and participants.

So one year on and both #OTalk and #Occhat are going from strength to strength. The above comments from participants give a flavour of the wide ranging opportunities that participation can offer to individuals. Not least how social media can support and enhance continued professional development (CPD) activities. Oh yes, don’t forget it is free, you just invest a little time and be open to experiencing a supportive and welcoming community that loves to share.

We invite more people to get involved, suggest topics, write and share their own summaries or reflections, comment on the blog and let us know how #OTalk or #Occhat has impacted on practice and supported CPD. People don’t have to have a twitter account to get involved and we’d love to hear from those who have been lurking. As we move into the second year of #OTalk and #Occhat we are expanding into other social media platforms to support the twitter chats and provide greater opportunities to engage and promote the profession. So keep your eyes wide open and we look forward to connecting and sharing with you soon.

If you would like any assistance please contact a member of the team we are
