Here for tonight's #OTalk not much experience of working with this area but excited to learn!
Jen Cooper @JenCooperOT
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ Work as an outcome gives a demonstrable measure of therapy intervention #otalk
Hayley Green @HG1OT
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ Work is a recognised health outcome and therefore should form an essential part of our assessment and treatment planning #otalk
Healthy Work Ltd @HealthyworkLtd
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ Ask about work at the beginning and later in ot input if a goal to the individual at the end of input too #otalk
Hayley Green @HG1OT
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ It can be a really concrete goal for people at a time when their world has been thrown into turmoil through illness / injury etc #otalk

A little late! But pertinent to my role in mental health rehabilitation.. looking forward to the chat! #OTalk https://t.co/a6nzTE3Gpr
Jen Cooper @JenCooperOT
@LouiseCrisp5 @OTalk_ @RCOT_Work Definitely a good point regarding productivity which further helps sense of meaning in daily life #otalk

This question needs to be asked of OTs in training. Work is core OT business. Vocational Rehabilitation needs to be embedded in undergraduate curriculum #otalk https://t.co/EUt2Ep6cDh
Kathryn Fox @OccupationalFox
@Rehab_Research I think it's also about getting the balance - for some people work will be a priority but not for others, I think it's important to make sure to ask but not assume it's a priority for everyone #OTalk

Hayley Green @HG1OT
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ Work is not a stand alone concept. it's integral to out roles, routines, choices & decisions. It should be incorporated the therapy we practice - integral to health and social care. Work outcomes should form part of the pathways we use and the data we collect #otalk
RCOTSSWork @RCOT_Work
Q2. Have you used work as a goal within your practice, and if so in which setting do you work in? #OTalk @OTalk_
Louise Crisp 🎓 @louisecrisp5
@JenCooperOT @martincrab @OTalk_ @RCOT_Work I think it also depends on the conditions of patients for example in mental health there is a lot of stigma so it is is essential for OTs to develop positive relationships with employers/community’s to enable that transition back into work to be a smooth one #OTalk

@JenCooperOT @LouiseCrisp5 @OTalk_ @RCOT_Work Although, not sure I’m 100% confident in delivering work related interventions. I seem to take more of a suck it and see approach and google is my friend! V challenging when I’ve got 25-35 year olds with no employment hx or recent quals wanting to get into employment. #OTalk

amy shirley @amylooeze
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ I work across in-pts and out-pts in a major trauma centre I use work as a goal with most of my out-pts(hand therapy) but with hardly any of my in-pts(trauma) it’s not that I don’t consider it, but at that time in their recovery it isn’t top on my patients goal priorities #OTalk

@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ On my contemporary mental health placement in supported living, my client set a goal to find voluntary work before focusing on gaining paid work, I worked with him to research opportunities in his local area, identify his skills and complete application forms #Otalk
Hayley Green @HG1OT
@Rehab_Research @martincrab I think we need to keep spreading the word - to break down barriers between services, give practical skills and examples, utilise patient's powerful voices, get employers involved in the curriculum, incorporate work into pt pathways, make videos and provide resources. #otalk

Kathryn Fox @OccupationalFox
@Rehab_Research I think it's a difficult one, we have to consider the patient before/after injury or illness, the impact of their job on their health (mental/physical) and whether it's the right decision for them to return to work, don't want to be pushing something not important to pts #OTalk
Sue Parkinson @MOHOspark
@Rehab_Research @HG1OT @martincrab #OTalk I think we need to remember that we can't guarantee that a person will realise their ultimate goal of finding the job of their dreams, but we can always help people to work TOWARDS their goals. In doing so, we may surprise ourselves by how much can be achieved.

@HealthyworkLtd @RCOT_Work @OTalk_ I agree, for lots of our patients their biggest long term issues are not physical but congnition and anxiety based!! Not always so easy to identify as the physical problems #OTalk

@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ I'm currently researching the use of language in integrated care teams. Within a new culture we must be able to communicate effectively with all team members. It's also important to retain our professional identity and our own occupational language #otalk

@Rehab_Research @iFRESHPhD @Lauren_OT @JenCooperOT @LouiseCrisp5 @OTalk_ @RCOT_Work @carina_knightot @JuliePhillipsOT @RetakeStroke I think part of the problem is access to experts in the field too. It helps immensely working with experienced practitioners #OTalk
Jen Cooper @JenCooperOT
@HealthyworkLtd @martincrab @amylooeze @RCOT_Work @OTalk_ Sometimes the standardised tests don’t pick up more subtle cognitive difficulties, it’s only when someone is observed managing a task or trying to prioritise and problem solve that these issues are identified #otalk
Dr Jain Holmes @iFRESHPhD
@HG1OT @Rehab_Research @martincrab You're right - get our collaborators involved in the curriculum - employers, occ health, HR, H&S, Unions - everyone. We can do a lot but we can learn a lot form other perspectives too #otalk

amy shirley @amylooeze
@martincrab @HealthyworkLtd @RCOT_Work @OTalk_ No issue picking up the cognitive issues, we use a range of standardised and non-standardised tests, it’s more the abundance of goals that the patients identify early on in the rehab stage that can mean that the goal of work tends not to be a consideration at that time #OTalk
Dr Jain Holmes @iFRESHPhD
@Rehab_Research @martincrab @Lauren_OT @JenCooperOT @LouiseCrisp5 @OTalk_ @RCOT_Work @carina_knightot @JuliePhillipsOT @RetakeStroke Its academics such as @Rehab_Research who stretch us to think differently and creatively and to search for the evidence that what we do works... or does it???? #OTalk
Rachel OT 🌻 @_rachelOT
@RCOT_Work @OTalk_ More opportunity to connect with employers and highlight support needs - many of the young adults with LD in my SW role want to work and be independent, but employers don’t always get that it may be a longer journey than usual to get there and lack patience to grade roles #otalk
