Really Proud

All of us at #OTalk/#Occhat are really proud of our fantastic Twitter Community.

Yesterday we heard that #OTalk and #WeNurses were mentioned in a government report relation to the series of Professionalism talks we held in response to Karen Middleton’s Big Conversation (which were supported by BAOT/COT).

This report is the Department of Health’s ‘Patients First and Foremost: The Initial Government Response to the Report of The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry’. The report can be read in full here – our nod is on page 31.

We would like to thank ALL of our participants – you can be proud of your contribution to raising the profile of our profession and demonstrating a commitment to open and honest discussion about our strengths and challenges.

#Occhat 25th March 2013 – Occupational Evaluation/Outcome Measures – Grabchat

Once again a huge thank you to Michelle Perryman for hosting the final talk in the OT Process series.

Michelle shared some great links on the blog before the chat which you can find here.

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life If it’s for evidence based purposes, the answer is yes in my book. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:04:51 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life yes lol how else do we know if what we do is actually being effective? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:05:02 +0000)
@DebbiiHarrison @OTalk_Occhat @symbolic_life Good evening fellow OTs I’ll be following #occhat tonight but will prob be sitting quietly in the corner(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:05:41 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life it’s 6am! Lol #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:05:44 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT what about for practical purposes? proving the worth of the profession? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:06:00 +0000)
@clissa89 Hi everyone, sorry I won’t be joining #occhat tonight but I need some restoration to balance my day(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:06:13 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 My thoughts exactly #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:06:26 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life RT @Keeper85 : @Symbolic_Life yes lol how else do we know if what we do is actually being effective? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:06:31 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life we still do in some instances because we’ve to at least prove that we are as good, if not better than alternatives. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:07:48 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life if we don’t know how we’re going we then can’t review and improve our practice. OM are Objective reflections lol #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:07:48 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat maybe another question is what constituents useful outcome measures? i.e. client satisfaction, their performance or something else?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:09:03 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life I think that we need them for clients too. #occhat To help them see the changes (sometimes they may struggle to do this)(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:09:13 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 So do u think our outcome measures improve our individual skills as well as the profession’s acknowledgment of practice? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:09:40 +0000)
@Keeper85 @BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life formal/informal it doesn’t matter but we need to complete that feedback loop for our interventions #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:09:47 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat oops meant constitutes not constituents!(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:09:53 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat ? @Symbolic_Life : 2. So why are Outcome Measures important?? #occhat (Don’t forget the hashtag tweeps)(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:10:08 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life RT @cgenter : #occhat maybe another question is what constituents useful outcome measures? i.e. client satisfaction, their performance or something else?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:10:21 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @cgenter : #occhat maybe another question is what constituents useful outcome measures? i.e. client satisfaction, their performance or something else?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:10:38 +0000)
@BillWongOT @cgenter quality of life, FIM scores, etc. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:10:51 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat OM important as part of intervention, demonstrating client progress to them?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:10:56 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life I don’t think OMs on their own do anything but a clinician willing to change/improve based on feedback will do lots #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:11:07 +0000)
@BillWongOT @OTalk_Occhat @Symbolic_Life For some instances, clients & caregivers can see progress. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:11:23 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter good question Chris. Good to see you. What about if we can prove reduced length of stay. Not occupational but??? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:11:52 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 @BillWongOT what about the clients perspective as @kirstyes suggested? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:11:54 +0000)
@cgenter @BillWongOT #occhat yes lots of different ways, I think could be summed up by Doble and Caron Santha idea of occupational well-being?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:11:54 +0000)
@BillWongOT @OTalk_Occhat @Symbolic_Life and more importantly, we need that to show this to get reimbursed. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:12:17 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT @kirstyes the most important We can see All the progress in the world…useless unless the ct sees it too #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:13:12 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT @OTalk_Occhat Do u think this supports your practice bill? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:13:12 +0000)
@cgenter @kirstyes #occhat thanks, nice to find time to be back. that would be popular in UK health service, would depend if it was client goal too?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:13:29 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @cgenter FIM = functional independence measure. It’s a quantitative measure of independence. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:13:54 +0000)
@rootsvoices @Symbolic_Life outcome measures can’t be meaningfully applied to human experience – if research necessary it needs to be qualitative #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:13:56 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @EmmJacq great to have you here. If you do join in, want to ask a question etc don’t forget the #occhat so people who don’t follow u can see(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:14:02 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes I tend to use outcomes that are done with the client so they can see and an objective one as well #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:14:32 +0000)
@DebbiiHarrison @Keeper85 @symbolic_life @billwongot @kirstyes agree with this, we need OM to support our profession but must be relevant to client #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:14:47 +0000)
@Helen_otuk Good evening #occhat , just catching up.(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:14:51 +0000)
@cgenter @rootsvoices #occhat wholeheartedly agree with that, think OM can be bit more interesting to management than anyone else?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:15:08 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @OTalk_Occhat good question- it does cuz clients & families can see small & big changes functionally usually. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:15:18 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 @BillWongOT @kirstyes So are you suggesting unless the client recognizes this change to it isnt benefical? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:15:28 +0000)
@EmmJacq @OTalk_Occhat Oops! yes, will remember the #occhat , thanks(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:15:38 +0000)
@Keeper85 @cgenter @rootsvoices not if its done right 🙂 it’s about self improvement too #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:16:13 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life Question 3. What outcome measures do you use with your clients And why? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:17:04 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT @kirstyes horses for courses. I use multiple outcome measures for different purposes 1 for ct, 1 for mgt #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:17:23 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @cgenter @rootsvoices Why do you think this Chris? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:17:37 +0000)
@cgenter @Keeper85 #occhat I suppose a concern could be what are outcome measures used for then? whose agenda is setting them?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:17:42 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life back in the day, I was given the COPM. Now no outcome measures… #strange #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:18:14 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes and same with peds assessments, too. Dependent on age & area(s) 2 b assessed, for ex. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:19:01 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life I use a lot of solution focused practice with clients where they use progress to preferred future as an OM #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:19:02 +0000)
@cgenter @Symbolic_Life #occhat as previous answer, about what the agenda for having outcome measures, and whether they are suitable?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:19:06 +0000)
@DrWMB #occhat hello just joining: intrigued by impact of adding “measures” to outcomes – does it force particular ways of thinking?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:19:13 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life I use AusTOMs for my own clinical effectiveness #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:19:48 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 Intresting.. How do u think this associates with our philosophy? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:20:17 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life and my organisation uses the HONOS for mgt facts and figures #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:20:18 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat idea of measure suggests pass/fail, that there is a standard to be achieved in some instances?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:21:01 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @Symbolic_Life : Question 3. What outcome measures do you use with your clients And why? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:21:24 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @cgenter I agree? Some services assume they are for ex doin a MOHOST with every client.does this directly link to client need? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:21:29 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life RT @DrWMB : #occhat hello just joining: intrigued by impact of adding “measures” to outcomes – does it force particular ways of thinking?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:21:45 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life strengths based, client focused, client driven, empowering them with choice and responsibility. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:21:58 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @Keeper85 Does this allow service measurement? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:22:10 +0000)
@Keeper85 RT @rootsvoices : @Keeper85 example of quantitative outcome measure ‘done right’ ?? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:22:24 +0000)
@BillWongOT @cgenter or in peds assessment, where the child is functionally in the areas assessed relative to peers. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:22:28 +0000)
@cgenter #occhat perhaps depends who decides what are the significant outcomes? maybe need compromise between service and client expectations?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:22:46 +0000)
@Helen_otuk In my adaptations work we have 2 pronged view. Client’s perspective then we also have to do the financial impact for the ‘man stats’ #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:22:50 +0000)
@DrWMB @cgenter @symbolic_life #occhat as an audiology service user I’m pleased if my hearing tests don’t get worse but that’s not the whole story(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:23:38 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life the HONOS is used for that service wide yea #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:23:50 +0000)
@BillWongOT @cgenter I think for certain measures, you have to look at research studies. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:24:02 +0000)

@Keeper85 #occhat I guess my main thing is that u don’t restrict urself to just 1 OM! Use ones appropriate to client, setting and measurement wanted(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:26:37 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter Wonder which ones need to be occupational though? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:26:50 +0000)

@kirstyes @DrWMB #occhat So do you mean adding numbers? Are qualitative measures also accepted? By who?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:28:28 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life 4.How do your outcome measures link to occ?Do they measure performance,engagement,satisfaction or something else? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:28:54 +0000)

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life Dependence on the measure… IMO. #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:05 +0000)
@DrWMB @Helen_otuk #occhat thanks, glad to clear that one up!(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:15 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life But I think it’s important with client-centered and/or family-centered goals in mind #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:39 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life @drwmb as in people saying life is better for me or some such #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:44 +0000)
@cgenter @Symbolic_Life #occhat in past mine was related to performance, but perhaps well-being is important?(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:48 +0000)
@Keeper85 @Symbolic_Life that’s up to the clinician to decide really #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:31:57 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @DrWMB @cgenter in your opinion which holds higher ranking? What do u think about the applied concepts in the recovery star? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:32:20 +0000)
@kirstyes @cgenter Think you wanted to run an #occhat on this ;0)
Need to read but yes think that would be good to explore.(Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:32:32 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @cgenter Why did it not pick up do you think? #occhat (Tue, 26 Mar 2013 20:32:36 +0000)

@Flawson12 @BillWongOT does it meet their need/goal of intervention? will they be motivated to try this out? ie is it client centred? #Otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:32:09 +0000)

@BillWongOT @elaamleung the exercises had minimal words, and the images were big enough for the older clients to see. #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:42:36 +0000)
@elaamleung @BillWongOT @AOTAInc #OTalk i see. yeh avoid jargons too. oh FOG (factor of gobbleygook) index was mentioned at lecture today.(Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:43:17 +0000)
@BillWongOT @elaamleung however, @AOTAInc stuff was sort of reminding them know that OT can help w/ their problems, since they were past clients. #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:43:29 +0000)
@Flawson12 @BillWongOT i tend to incorporate ideas into diff motor programmes, individual depending on childs needs, but thats a fair point #Otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:43:32 +0000)
@sgp6677 RT @BillWongOT : @elaamleung good one! I feel that can come into play in arenas such as weight management, for example. #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:43:49 +0000)
@Flawson12 @BillWongOT can you print pins then…lol novice #Otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:43:54 +0000)
@Helen_otuk This is why we are here, to learn more! (Well I am) RT @Flawson12 : @BillWongOT can you print pins then…lol novice #Otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:44:33 +0000)
@BillWongOT @elaamleung @AOTAInc yup! I would check the material out and see if I have to repackage them so that they can be more understandable. #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:44:33 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Flawson12 if you click on the links (since you can), you can. 🙂 #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:45:02 +0000)

@BillWongOT another thing I was thinking about is accessibility #otalk W/o pinterest, I felt that @AOTAInc fact sheets may not b easily accessed by SU’s(Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:47:18 +0000)
@AbbyPediatricOT I started using pinterest to organize all of the OT ideas I found on the web. Now my boards have turned into a resource for parents. #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:47:37 +0000)
@Wardmans @BillWongOT making it client centered i understand
#otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:47:41 +0000)
@BillWongOT Q4: We talked a lot of pros, are there any cons? #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:48:06 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #OTalk Has anyone found difficulties or limitations with pinterest?(Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:48:16 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @BillWongOT he he he we were thinking the same things there #otalk (Tue, 19 Mar 2013 20:48:58 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @kirstyes oh really! I think its important not to limit yourself to the occupations you already know #NeverStopLearning #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:17:21 +0000)

@BillWongOT @kirstyes occupations as ends probably can be as simple as regaining range to be able to turn a key to drive a car. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:17:29 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair MOHOST starkly showed up communication difficulties and was great evidence to contribute to diagnosis 2/2 #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:18:23 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @Richardsblister Nice to meet you. I bet your role is very interesting! Is it a very occupation focused role? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:18:26 +0000)
@Richardsblister the basis of our interventions with veterans with ptsd are based on good old fashioned creativity, based on reducing cortisol #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:18:30 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT But how would you help a client regain range? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:18:39 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life I am all about occupation cant say that for all settings i have encountered i tend to highlight the transferable skill to the client #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:18:54 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn @clissa89 @kirstyes I’ve facilitated creative groups using occupation as a means for personal capacity development #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:19:14 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT Was that not ends because the intervention became the end outcome? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:19:30 +0000)
@kirstyes @AnnabelFenn @clissa89 what are some of the challenges with this do you think? And the positives? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:20:05 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes I have been thinking about ends and means.. I think of it as activity analysis. when we take an activity/ occupation #occhat 1/2(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:20:40 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes in that setting, that will be through therapy as well as home programs, I believe. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:20:55 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes it was a means because the overall goal at the time was to improve my social skills. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:21:22 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn @kirstyes @clissa89 challenges included complexity of occupation and evidencing meaningful outcomes #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:21:22 +0000)

@kirstyes @Richardsblister how do you ensure intervention is meaningful? Is it group or individual sessions or a mix? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:22:01 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes 2/2 #occhat and put in its component parts. is each part an occupation or a building block.each 2b mastered 2build and occupation?(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:22:12 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @pd2ot thanks for hunting that out 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:22:23 +0000)

@Symbolic_Life #occhat struggling to keep up with occ chat tonight… My brain hurts ;-)(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:23:52 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT what do you mean by through therapy and home programs? Can you be specific? What would the client do. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:24:04 +0000)
@clissa89 @Symbolic_Life I think a few of us are in the same boat tonight 🙂 remember, you can add comments tomorrow too #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:24:31 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT so was it less about the specific situation and working on transferable skills? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:24:48 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT maybe in your case it was as ends and means. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:25:12 +0000)
@Richardsblister @kirstyes for example i have a client using photography to get in touch with his emotions, another drawing cartoons for his daughter #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:25:13 +0000)

@Richardsblister @Helen_otuk go back to our roots. occupation is something that is meaningful to us as opposed to a task #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:27:52 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair I often work with people where an occupation is the end goal, they are deprived of occupations. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:28:14 +0000)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT But are these occupational interventions? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:28:24 +0000)
@Richardsblister @kirstyes we teach the basics of what goes wrong with STM when you have PTSD and how this has an impact on fx. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:28:37 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk me to. I think Its important to be mindful about occupation. I think in some settings it can be easy to let it slip #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:28:43 +0000)
@CharOTReilly @Georgia_Fair iv experienced that too #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:29:16 +0000)

@BillWongOT @kirstyes therapy- it’s arguable. But home program can be if it is related to the person’s interests, I think. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:30:27 +0000)

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes an example of that could be small talk… where a family member/close friend can provide some feedback. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:35:39 +0000)
@kirstyes @Georgia_Fair using occ as means then? #occhat Do you look at general relaxation and specific ‘on the spot’ relaxation strategies? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:35:49 +0000)

@BillWongOT @kirstyes It depends on setting- I think it is generally yes… otherwise we can’t separate ourselves from other disciplines. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:48:15 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes agreed – although technical instructors/OTAs play important role too. Is it a case of clinical reasoning? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:48:40 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Richardsblister @kirstyes That is summed up very nicely! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:49:01 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life But what if there is a really good community group running that has no OT involvement? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:49:24 +0000)
@Richardsblister @AnnabelFenn yes, we have recovery workers who do graded practise, if just left to us we could not cope with demand #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:49:33 +0000)

@AnnabelFenn @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes also depends on staff skills in observation and analysing response to interventions I think #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:55:53 +0000)
@kirstyes RT @Symbolic_Life : @kirstyes @annabelfenn agree.. although assessment is reviewed throughout… So maintenance of graded support? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:56:04 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn It depends on each situation- no definite answer here. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:56:04 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair @charl885 @kirstyes I would argue OT is more client centred! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:56:28 +0000)
@kirstyes RT @MissHeldi : #occhat @kirstyes Creative writing session for someone who has blunt affect, limited verbal communication, etc but enjoys writing poems.(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:56:31 +0000)
@charl885 @BillWongOT @AnnabelFenn this may mean you’re too accessible-detrimental to workload/time to work with other clients. #balance #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:56:39 +0000)
@gilliancrossley RT @kirstyes : @Helen_otuk Yup, this should be the ultimate goal ;0) #occhat When we aren’t needed is when we’ve done a great job?!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:57:34 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn If I do this, though, I will do it after regular work hours. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:57:39 +0000)
@kirstyes @Richardsblister Lol. Love it. It does seem as if there is jumping on our bandwagon. Recovery?! We need the evidence we do it better #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:57:49 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn Maybe because I am an #autism advocate, but I feel for their struggles a lot more. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:58:20 +0000)
@kirstyes #occhat So, last three minutes. Take home messages? Thanks one and all. Really great discussion. Will grabchat in 24 hrs.(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:58:29 +0000)
@charl885 @Georgia_Fair @kirstyes I meant to say other jobs would only be client-centred rather than occupation focussed,whereas OTs are both #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:58:29 +0000)
@Richardsblister Ok all its been a blast but this specialist OT needs a shower, if any interested further info on veterans with ptsd please e mail @ #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:58:37 +0000)
@kirstyes @Georgia_Fair @billwongot Love it. Nice summary. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 20:59:18 +0000)
@kirstyes @Georgia_Fair @charl885 Check out @pd2ot blog link in thread. We aren’t always?! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:00:14 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat OT rules. We take a persons philosophy and work with it though the means of their chosen occupational goals..basically WE WORK IT!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:00:32 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair @kirstyes I work in a team that thinks very holistically and I focus on occupation to differentiate from LD nurses #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:00:59 +0000)
@charl885 @BillWongOT @AnnabelFenn would again think of your own life #balance plus giving each client the amount of time they deserve #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:01:04 +0000)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes As OTs, I think occupational interventions are essential. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:01:23 +0000)
@kirstyes @Richardsblister take care. Thanks and will be in touch re brain stuff! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:01:24 +0000)
@zzzoooman @charl885 @Georgia_Fair @kirstyes #occhat Some activity is better than no activity…Use it or loose it!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:01:50 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn It’s a hard balance. I wear the #autism advocate hat when I am not practicing most of the time. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:02:32 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn be careful you also need balance to ensure you have a straight head to support your reasoning! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:02:37 +0000)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk ;0) #occhat There aren’t enough hours in a day, are there?(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:02:50 +0000)
@charl885 @BillWongOT @AnnabelFenn that is admirable&going the extra mile is one reason I became an OT,but there must be time for you #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:03:08 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @AnnabelFenn So I often enfold advocacy work in trying to help clients and families in the best of my ability. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:03:18 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair @zzzoooman Totally agree! Always explaining to ward staff I AM NOT AN ACTIVITY COORDINATOR!!! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:03:40 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life in the discussion with the OT ;0)
Seriously though. There is some great occupational interventions out there not OT #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:04:15 +0000)
@AnnabelFenn Brilliant #occhat this evening. Thank you for having me! #Timefortea (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:04:37 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @charl885 @AnnabelFenn yes… that’s true. That’s why I purposely tried to not think about #OT stuff on weekends. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:05:07 +0000)
@kirstyes RT @Symbolic_Life : #occhat OT rules. We take a persons philosophy and work with it though the means of their chosen occupational goals..basically WE WORK IT!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:05:59 +0000)
@Georgia_Fair Goodnight all, see you next week #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:06:06 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes also cost implications for the employer, do you need to pay an OT to do everything? more cost effective to guide/review? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:06:07 +0000)
@Keeper85 RT @Symbolic_Life : #occhat OT rules. We take a persons philosophy and work with it though the means of their chosen occupational goals..basically WE WORK IT!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:07:02 +0000)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk There will be times when it does need to be us though. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:07:46 +0000)
@charl885 Glad I caught the end of #occhat – great discussion as always. And I got to try out tweetdeck for the first time!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:07:56 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life RT @kirstyes : @Helen_otuk There will be times when it does need to be us though. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:08:10 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat Thank you to everyone who participated in and watched #occhat tonight – feel free to add further comments over the next 24 hours :)(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:08:27 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @charl885 @AnnabelFenn Yes… that’s why church is an important wkly occupation 4 me (unless I’ve 2 go 2 an OT conf) #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:08:39 +0000)
@Helen_otuk #occhat @Helen_otuk : Thanks to @kirstyes for hosting and to @clissa89 for guiding us.(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:08:50 +0000)
@kirstyes @OTalk_Occhat Thanks @clissa89 on the account. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:09:05 +0000)
@charl885 @Helen_otuk @kirstyes Links also with role of OT assistants and Technical Instructors? OT driven still, but better financially #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:09:20 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes I think it depends if the occupational intervention has therapeutic value, isn’t that was makes it OT…. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:09:30 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes yes, we need to keep an eye and have good communication links. But we do not need to do everything. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:00 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life What we should be doing is tapping into them, helping evaluate them. Offering consultation for better outcomes?? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:15 +0000)
@charl885 @kirstyes laptop – just http://t.co/jeONW7uB2A and sign up. Definitely much easier than following #occhat on regular twitter!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:18 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat A Yummy Chat! Very reflective its prompted this week reflection for me! ;-)Thanks! Wisdom OTs #attemptingtocharmOTsChatting #allure (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:31 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Helen_otuk @kirstyes yes… I see that in US, too. COTA’s earn about 50-70% of what OTR’s make. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:41 +0000)
@Helen_otuk @charl885 yes very similar. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:10:49 +0000)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley Yes I guess so. ;0) #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:11:06 +0000)
@charl885 @Symbolic_Life @BillWongOT @annabelfenn Couldn’t agree more – projects on the go is good, but set aside structured time to relax #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:11:29 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @kirstyes I like! We need to go private boss.. Lets chat about this venture ;-)! All JKing a side I agree completely!! #occhat #occjustice .(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:12:49 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Symbolic_Life @AnnabelFenn If I have my paycheck, I am investing some on some golf clubs. #occhat #onewaytorelax (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:12:51 +0000)
@charl885 @BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @kirstyes What do COTA and OTR stand for? Just so I understand roles in other countries! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:13:35 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Symbolic_Life @AnnabelFenn if not, I will go a cheap alternative in doing disc golf. #occhat #onewaytorelax (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:13:39 +0000)
@gilliancrossley thanks @kirstyes for hosting a great chat! I feel a blog post coming on! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:13:41 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Helen_otuk @kirstyes Certified OT assistant = COTA, OTR = registered OT. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:14:15 +0000)
@Helen_otuk YES! RT @kirstyes : What we should be doing is tapping into them, helping evaluate them. Offering consultation for better outcomes?? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:14:38 +0000)
@Keeper85 @clissa89 @kirstyes love this paper! #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:14:51 +0000)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life ;0) #occhat We may have to!(Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:14:52 +0000)
@BillWongOT @charl885 @Helen_otuk @kirstyes But the /L is important because it shows that you are licensed, which allows you to practice. #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:15:07 +0000)
@charl885 it’s been brief but I’m off. Enjoy your evenings all (or day if you’re @billwongOT !) #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:18:04 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @Symbolic_Life thank you for your contributions. perhaps you would like to share your reflection on the blog? #occhat (Tue, 12 Mar 2013 21:19:02 +0000)
