This weeks #Otalk topic is ‘Role emerging OT, friend or foe?’ and will be hosted by #OTalk Team member Kirstie (@Kirstie_OT).
Over recent years there has been an increase in Occupational Therapists working in broader roles such as team managers, honorary consultants, prescribers, discharge facilitators, case managers, care coordinators and within charities.
With OT having such a wide span of knowledge, training and experience it is a profession for the lifespan. This combined with it’s holistic approach means OT has plenty to offer so it is no surprise that OTs are now branching out from the traditional confines of acute and community care.
While these roles are a prime opportunity to show the world what we are capable of, are we doing our protected titles and the profession a disservice by taking on these generic roles?
