Medical Tourism is booming these days. People are willing to get medical services from best possible care facilities/organizations but lower prices. The definition suggests, “As the cost of healthcare began to rise in industrialized countries, particularly in the United States, the face of medical tourism began to change to include individuals seeking affordable and timely alternatives to surgery or treatment in their home countries” (Bennie, 2014) and such needs created the idea of the Medical Tourism. According to Kher (2006), “Medical services in India are particularly affordable, with prices as low as 10% of those in the United States” (as cited by Horowitz, Rosensweig, & Jones, 2007, p. 2).
My sister, also an OT, but not a Twitter faring one,came up with this topic. I thought it would be fun for us to share our OT journeys through recollection of some key #OTMoments, it might also be helpful for those looking to study the profession, and those newly graduating, and well, all of us as a little reflection.
Over the last few months there have been discussions going on behind the scenes of OTalk about an exciting new development. We are pleased to announce that as from October the first OTalk of every month will pick up a research related topic to support the promotion, use and conduct of research in the day to day practice of occupational therapists. So the first OTalk research chat will be 4th October 2016.
This #OTalk will focus on the skills needed to become an expert witness.
Simon Dickinson Expert Recruitment Manager from Jacqueline Webb will be on twitter using @jwebbexperts to host the chat.
