If you are an occupational therapist, or you have never really taken occupational therapy seriously, now is the time to take a look at the international Occupational Therapy Blog Carnival #1.
Thanks to one of the most energetic Web 2.0 protagonists I’ve ever met, ‘Buckeyebrit’ (AKA Claire Hayward from UK!) organised this inaugural occupational therapy carnival. Go here to her blog ‘E-nableOT’ for the blog roundup.
Next month I’m up for hosting it - be prepared for some stimulating, enlightening and rewarding reading. If you’re an occupational therapist, or have something related to occupational therapy in your blog, think about contributing. Next month’s topic is ‘clinical reasoning and occupational therapy’ (my choice!) so I invite you all to contribute. Maybe an example of the reasoning behind an intervention you’ve used. Maybe a description of how you’ve applied a model of practice into a treatment. Perhaps it’s a thought about how your clinical reasoning has developed over your practice - or maybe, if you’re not an occupational therapist, how your reasoning differs from occupational therapists you’ve worked with.
I’ll give you more details about what to do - and I won’t let anyone forget either! - in the next couple of weeks.
Oh wow - just thought i'd post a reply as i am a new member and really have found this site by default. I am due to qualify as an OT (hopefully) in one month, my last assignment is RE: A contemporary Issue; social networking sites are they deemed to compromise OT's professionality. I feel that they could increase the evidence base perhaps globally and provide support. I am finding that my idea for my assignment is already happening and I am impressed. So just to say thanks and keep up the good work. Have you come across any articles about raising OT awareness through blogs? thanks Sarah
I was considering enrolling in an <a href="http://www.atsu.edu/ashs/online_programs/occupational_therapy/index.htm">online occupational therapy degree</a> program. Any info or advice about completing these programs is appreciated!
