Welcome to tonight's #OTalk. RCOT need your help to expand the discussion about the development of an Occupational Therapy Research Network. How might it work? What would it do? That’s what I'd like to chat with you about during the #OTalk. @theRCOT
OTalk @OTalk_
Good evening all and welcome to tonight's #OTalk Research. It's @hooper_ek on the @OTalk_ account this evening and we are delighted to welcome @DrGillianWard from @theRCOT who is leading tonight's chat. Who else is joining us / lurking? Do say Hi!
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75

Hi all #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Hi @Amie_OT Do feel free to post as well as lurk! #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
First question, coming up #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
@preston_jenny @hooper_ek @DrGillianWard @theRCOT Me too - I’m really interested to hear what people think about how a research network should function...#OTalk
Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT I would love to see a way of disseminating best practice more widely and readily to OTs. Research champions in each discipline? Synthesising research on particular topics and sharing with peers in that field #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Question https://t.co/bSPkVbNR1e do we best support the aim of the network; “to support each other to develop and use the research evidence base to improve the services we are able to offer?” How might it work? What would it do?’ #OTalk @theRCOT
OTalk @OTalk_
Thanks @DrGillianWard ... to everyone joining us tonight don't forget to add the # (#OTalk) to your tweets
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@DanWaldronOT How do we idemtify the research champions for OT? #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Here we are with Q1 from @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
RT @OTalk_: Here we are with Q1 from @DrGillianWard #OTalk https://t.co/ij3O6dzDPe
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
Can I clarify is this for an occupational therapy research network at any level or for post grad/doctoral students? #otalk #isthatasillyquestion
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I like the sound of this @DanWaldronOT @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT Not really a practical answer but I’d love to see a network that dispels a few myths about what ‘doing research’ looks like and helps people to identify their own contributions #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Not a silly question at all #HellomynameisSarah - yes all levels
OTalk @OTalk_
Good question @SLawsonOT - what do you think would be useful? #OTalk @DrGillianWard
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@SetG75 @theRCOT How might we do that? @SetG75 #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I think we need to identify a range of people in different roles within the profession to champion research. I guess one risk is that we continue to rely on those that are research 'active' to generate the evidence and translate the evidence into practice @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
I would love to see a network for all levels - for me this is about building a community of practice which is open to all #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
So a community for all levels then #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
I second this, I would love to know more about research, I want to get more involved in research but have absolutely no idea where to start, a network that advised and helped others get more involved into research would be fantastic #otalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@preston_jenny I'm keen that the network would encourage all - not just those who are research active to engage. HOw can we make sure this happens? #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@OTalk_ @DrGillianWard Useful at all levels and encourage the wider OT profession to engage with research. Although I also think each level may have different needs. #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
We definitely seem to be heading towards a consensus that it should be accessible to all-comers #OTalk @DrGillianWard
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@DanWaldronOT That would be fab! Some employers might need encouragement - any ideas? #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Second question coming up #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Any thoughts on how we can make it accessible to all? #OTalk @DrGillianWard
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Perhaps we need to think of it less as 'doing' research and more about the 'being' aspects of research as we are all research consumers. The variation of course occurs in how we engage with research (evidence) @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT Seeing as you ask 😁 ..... ensure detail of guiding principles in the Evidence Research and Development pillar of #RCOTCareerFramework provide suggestions for research activity at every career level - with Research Network informing content for 2nd edition *hint, hint* #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Question 2.What would be the advantages of joining an RCOT Occupational Therapy Research Network? How can we encourage people to join? #OTalk @theRCOT
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@OTalk_ @DrGillianWard Totally, ideally it would also have opportunities for a ‘buddy system’ or advice service where someone like me with 101 questions could have a number of named people to talk to. I guess like a research interest directory #otalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@SLawsonOT @OTalk_ Yes I agree there are different needs at different stages, how might the network accommodate these #OTalk

Q2 from @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@Amie_OT @OTalk_ Nice idea #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@YvonnOT @OTalk_ Welcome! Academics could join the network too and promote to students? #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT #OTalk 3 different asks here 1. Supportive networking forum, advice and mentoring 2. Help with implementing research into practice, building skills, develop education 3. Help with evaluating and service improvement. Perhaps needs a smorgasbord of offers for different needs💡
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I'm not sure that there is a simple answer here but as occupational therapists we manage to work across agencies and traditional boundaries in practice so perhaps we need to apply some of the learning to the OTRN @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@preston_jenny @DanWaldronOT The network could provide an opportunity for sharing this perhaps? #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
People joining will be influenced by the quality of what the network provides and it's profile across the profession #OTalk

Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@DrGillianWard @YvonnOT @OTalk_ Promoting the network at universities would be a great opportunity but equally it would be great to get the newly qualified occupational therapists too, as research it’s not something I would have considered straight away in my first to role but now I’m settled in the role #OTalk

Visual profiles yes but also think webinars, podcasts, social media all at a national level that could be accessed when and where is right for you #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
@DanWaldronOT @DrGillianWard @theRCOT So a research network could also be a place to inspire and show case what others are doing in different roles - preferably across sectors, settings etc #OTalk

Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@DanWaldronOT @SLawsonOT @OTalk_ I really want to dispel this, there is a just right research challenge for all occupational therapists #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT

Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@Amie_OT @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard I know lots of topic areas that need further research in paediatrics, but wouldn't know how to secure funding, what methodology to use, where best to publish etc #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@AbiEdwards7 @theRCOT Totally agree! Encouraging our under grads is crucial #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@DanWaldronOT @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard It would really help those of us wanting to get more stuck in find the right people to talk to or ask questions without feeling like a lost little fish in a big pond #OTalk

Hi @OTMcCracken Glad you could join us. We're just onto Q3 now: Many people join networks, but how can we encourage active contribution and participation? #OTalk
Helen Brown @HelenBrown09
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT People need to see the tangible benefits of research - OTs, yes, but also to their employers, service users and colleagues #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@OTalk_ @DrGillianWard #OTalk OT Research Network launch event where the research network, research impacts and evidence based practice is celebrated, perhaps a future OT week theme? Research 🌈 Rainbow demonstrating the many ways clinicans can engage with research.
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@HelenBrown09 @DrGillianWard @theRCOT I’ve presented to colleagues and service users and now making the next step to present to employers and it’s hard to put myself across effectively #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@natlouj @OTalk_ Fab idea! OT week focused on research that's a great one to take forward #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Maybe it could also be a place to 'incubate' research questions? @DanWaldronOT @DrGillianWard #OTalk

Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@OTalk_ @DanWaldronOT @DrGillianWard Having a list of gaps in current research and research priorities within the profession would be useful #otalk
Catherine Purcell @PurcellCath
@OTalk_ @DrGillianWard I guess it has to be relevant and accessible. I wonder if the Career Development Framework (research pillar) could be used to organise material (assuming a web based platform) with resources sat behind each level #OTalk
Helen Brown @HelenBrown09
@natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard This is great but we need to ensure a network attracts all OTs in diverse areas of practice not health alone #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@OTalk_ @DanWaldronOT Incubate and make connections with others interested in the same areas of research #Otalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@DrGillianWard @OTalk_ @DanWaldronOT Yes!!!!!! #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT #OTalk 'proof is in the pudding' if it's useful, engagement will follow. We need an OT version of the ice bucket challange to engage enthusiasm, participation and a desire to act. Some serious PR to start things off...😁
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@HelenBrown09 @DrGillianWard @theRCOT Yes, one of the findings from my literature review on CPD is that employers/organisations unwilling to support as no perceived benefits to them. Just as important to share the benefits/impact of research too #otalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@PurcellCath @OTalk_ That's something @SetG75 @theRCOT and others are definitely working on #Otalk
Abi Edwards @AbiEdwards7
@OTalk_ @OTMcCracken #OTalk raise profile by using new and traditional media, lots of people don’t tweet, so it’s about introducing the concept of twitter as a learning, sharing, +be space.
Nat Jones @natlouj
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT #OTalk yes think a strong 🔗 link to specialist sections is vital.
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@HelenBrown09 @natlouj @OTalk_ Definitely, how do we reach those in diverse areas? #Otalk
Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@preston_jenny @DrGillianWard But I guess the active researchers would be excellent mentors for others in that area of practice #OTalk

@ajciliaOT @theRCOT Would probably need to be based around a virtual network, any thoughts? #Otalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
RT @DrGillianWard: Question 4.The OTRN is likely to be based around a virtual network, what should we consider when designing this? #OTalk
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@PurcellCath @preston_jenny @OTalk_ @DanWaldronOT @DrGillianWard Clinical academics I think can seem appealing. Have to choose between chocolate cake and lemon drizzle why not have both #otalk

I'm loving the energy and sense of fun that we're having during this evening's chat. Just 10 minutes to go, so post any other thoughts / suggestions / ideas to @DrGillianWard about the RCOT research network now :-) #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@OTMcCracken @HelenBrown09 @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard Can also be difficult to access relevant literature if not in the NHS with access to their libraries. Was extremely difficult when I was in social care to access much - hence the career move! #otalk

Yvonne Thomas @YvonnOT
@OTalk_ #OTalk I like the idea of regional communities that could have some face to face communication. Call me a dinosaur!
Alison McCracken @OTMcCracken
@OTalk_ Making sure that CAHPR hubs are included and that the network is adding something unique. Showcasing the variety of research specialities and levels of research would be great - maybe examples of the whole research process from first person account? #OTalk

Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@natlouj @DrGillianWard @HelenBrown09 @OTalk_ Love it, love it, love it! Collaborate on priority research topics in their area, share/review/synthesise existing research, co-produce research... #OTalk

Any thoughts on how this network might work best? What has worked for you in the past? What has helped you to develop connections? #OTalk

Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@SLawsonOT @OTMcCracken @HelenBrown09 @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard Are there not librarians in social care? That I can imagine being a big barrier #otalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@YvonnOT @OTalk_ Not a dinosaur! I like the idea of some face to face activity too, perhaps an annual research event, regional roadshow supported by @theRCOT #Otalk
Helen Brown @HelenBrown09
@DanWaldronOT @SLawsonOT @DrGillianWard @theRCOT When they can see the benefits for the service - saving money, trialling new practice, efficiencies or better customer experience #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Perhaps this is something that @theRCOT could review as part of the OTRN and how members access relevant literature @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@DrGillianWard @YvonnOT @OTalk_ @theRCOT Face to face is great too :) #otalk
Alison McCracken @OTMcCracken
@SLawsonOT @HelenBrown09 @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard I've never been employed directly by local authorities - do they have no academic subscriptions at all? Yes that's a pretty major barrier to EBP! #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Sometimes putting a face to a name and connecting in person is worth its weight in gold. #OTalk Have you found any useful ways of doing this virtually @YvonnOT?
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@DrGillianWard @YvonnOT @OTalk_ @theRCOT I have found academic supervision can work on Skype but there is nothing like face to face #otalk
Kate Tudor @OT_KateT
@DrGillianWard @theRCOT At the most basic, an easy to navigate website plus an email list. Around that, a presence on the different social media (twitter, facebook, instagram, youtube, podcasting) #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
A tangible and practical suggestion from @preston_jenny here #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@preston_jenny @theRCOT All members have access to databases through @theRCOT library #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Last 5 minutes folks, Any final thoughts for me to consider? #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Income generation, status, research credibility, in my own experience as a clinical academic @DrGillianWard #OTalk
Cara Lawrence @caralawrence
@OTalk_ Is there a platform already in use? I have never really used researchgate properly. But are Physio, nursing etc chums can be very knowledgeable. #otalk
Helen Brown @HelenBrown09
@caralawrence @SLawsonOT @OTMcCracken @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard No I’m afraid not..! Accessing resources can be a problem in these areas of practice but often University libraries will let you join as a guest #OTalk
Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@YvonnOT @preston_jenny @DrGillianWard There's definitely a quote in there about offering a fish or teaching a person to fish (or something like that! 😋) We need to move away from research being for the 'elite' and to those with expertise mentoring others in the profession to enhance our research base #OTalk

Last chance to have your say during this evening's chat #OTalk
Yvonne Thomas @YvonnOT
@OTalk_ #OTalk I can work effectively using a range of technology but it works best for me when I have had face to face contact. So Skype or FaceTime helps to develop the relationships
Helen Brown @HelenBrown09
@OTMcCracken @SLawsonOT @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard No I’m afraid not #OTalk

If people have ideas following this evening's chat how could they get them to you @DrGillianWard ? #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@HelenBrown09 @caralawrence @SLawsonOT @OTMcCracken @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard I’ve always checked on journals available through the rcot membership, technically the hospital I work in has a library but being off site I’ve not even seen it in the 9 months I’ve been there #otalk
Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@OTMcCracken @preston_jenny @DrGillianWard Funding will be key. We could rely on a certain level of voluntary engagement - as we do for many networks and committees now. Could it be funded through paid-for CPD opportunities? Would it being part of existing RCOT SSs draw down any funding? #OTalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah @SLawsonOT
@OTMcCracken @HelenBrown09 @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard Some for social work nothing for OT in the area I was in #otalk very different set up to NHS

Alison McCracken @OTMcCracken
@DanWaldronOT @SLawsonOT @HelenBrown09 @DrGillianWard @theRCOT Yes - improving quality of practice, new sources of funding income, benefits for 'reputation', CQC inspections, recruiting & retaining staff are all reasons that some employers are motivated to get involved in my experience. #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard

Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
@preston_jenny No problem not perhaps the same scope as an academic library but all main journals and databases are covered #OTalk
Dan Waldron OT @DanWaldronOT
@SetG75 @DrGillianWard @theRCOT Agreed. I absolutely think it would. We would just need to make it feel accessible to all. I think tapping into specialist sectors is an awesome idea for this reason #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Thanks @DrGillianWard ... do keep the suggestions coming into Gill and @theRCOT as they progress this idea. From the energy and suggestions this evening it sounds like people would welcome the development of an RCOT research network 👍#OTalk

@Amie_OT @HelenBrown09 @caralawrence @SLawsonOT @OTMcCracken @natlouj @OTalk_ @DrGillianWard If your hospital is in the NHS the library should be able to set you up with an Athens log in which can access a fair few journals online #OTalk
