This weeks #OTalk is on the topic of “Writing an Abstract” and will be hosted by members of the RCOT Conference Development Team. Sarah Lawson (@SarahLawsonOT) will be our host with support from Sarah Bodell (@OTSalfordUni), Ken Levins (@LevinsKen) and Clare Taylor (@ClareTaylor).
Here is what they had to say…
Are you an occupational therapist working in new ways? Have you implemented a new approach? Do you wonder if you are the only occupational therapist working in this way? Would you like to find others to share your ideas with and inspire each other?
Is your research generating evidence for the profession which could help to raise the profile and position occupational therapy for the 21st Century?
Have you thought about submitting an abstract for the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT) Annual Conference 2019 but are not sure where to start?
Then this #OTalk is for you. To you your everyday work may be just that, but you could help to inspire others. You could provide useful information and ideas which encourage others to consider different perspectives and new approaches in their practice.
The abstract submissions process closes on 5 November 2018 so this is your chance to have your questions answered, receive reassurance and guidance and hopefully give you the confidence to go for it ready for #RCOT2019 in Birmingham 17 – 18 June.
