Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@KimWillisOT @OT_rach I think it's because partly, compared to nurses and other healthcare professions, occupational therapy is relatively new, and partly because there are so many different healthcare professions the public don't always know who does what #OTalk

@OT_rach I ran out of charactots #OTalk .. straight to the naughty step for me kirstie!
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@KimWillisOT @Amie_OT @OT_rach If it is my answer, I think partly is because we are a relatively newer profession. Partly is because at least some portion of our history of existence... our ways of finding relevancy in public were not the most efficient. #otalk
Orla @orlatheot
@OT_rach No more paper notes, include 21st century occupations on interest checklists (blogging, vlogging, video-gaming), and look at innovative way of how things like VR could be used in rehab (dementia, stroke) #otalk

Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@preston_jenny @KimWillisOT @OT_rach I think it depends on the setting, I've met more people that have a good knowledge of occupational therapy within the healthcare sector, but know a lot of people outside of healthcare that still think I'm occupational health or a physio #OTalk

@OT_rach @OTalk_ Occupation is core to human nature. It’s key to engage in things we need and want to do. It’s a powerful tool, vital to occupational therapy to support people to live life the way they want to, to the best of their potential. #OTalk #rcot
