Hello peeps! #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 1.......
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@OTalk_ @VdTMoCAFUK I’m also here (attempting to multi-task!) as OT who used to lead high secure OT service in using #VdTMoCA #OTalk
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK Used to be high security...Now indoctrinating some Speech & Language therapists into the handling principles, plus Dietitians too who work across acute & forensic mental health units. Some units OTs are piloting use of model. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 2.....
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@VdTMoCAFUK I came across VdTMoCA on my final placement in a high secure setting. It was so different to any other model I had used in other placements. For me, it just made sense and made the OT role so much clearer - so much so I returned to the service when I qualified #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK Main barriers are expectations of leaders/service managers and whether this affects standards (ie CQUIN of 25hr/week activity), persuaded usually by quality vs quantity and effectiveness argument. Also, sustaining team motivation whilst learning and short-staffed. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK I am in the US- my challenge actually comes from not having a consistent workplace. So it is not easy to apply even if I know the framework. #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Thank you.... #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK It is a lot of moving around. So my day-to-day workplace is often inconsistent. #otalk
Gemma P @gemOT18
#OTalk I’m late to the party and not used this model so will be lurking and absorbing all the info!

#OTalk Question 3...
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK Secured support from line manager for ‘pilot’, Planned a service evaluation to measure impact, and explained the core benefits of model through presentations to clinical teams and senior managers. Most were convinced once levels and handling principles explained #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@icancreativity @WintRebecca This highlights my challenge- constant changes to my workplaces means I don’t see patients on a consistent basis. For me at my work, getting my patients to work with me is the battle I face constantly because of it. #otalk
Angela Smith @AngelaS20044709
@OTalk_ #OTalk I work in a private NHS overspill acute mental health ward, across both male and female wards. I've found the practice manual a valuable resource, informing group protocols and how to grade activities to ensure the patients progress.
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@VdTMoCAFUK Getting the MDT on board...implementing the model meant a huge change in our OT timetable. We invested time/effort into educating others about the model and demonstrating the model’s effectiveness through case studies etc. #OTalk #VdTMoCA @OTalk_
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK If I answer it from US context, I would say the upcoming Medicare changes could actually foster more of such opportunities overall for OT profession because groups will be more popular. #otalk

RT @becky_1983:
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@VdTMoCAFUK OT sessions are more specific to OPAs. Raised the profile of OT within the hospital - other professions are starting to understand that we use activity to treat patients, not just to keep them busy!! #OTalk #VdTMoCA @OTalk_
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 4 I think?
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@AliciaRidout @AngelaS20044709 @OTalk_ @AliciaRidout I really wish I’d had some QI training prior to embedding model. We did generally used Plan do study act cycles but this was by chance! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@icancreativity @WintRebecca I work in nursing home setting in the US, aka skilled nursing facilities. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK @icancreativity @WintRebecca Unfortunately it is a lot of putting up with what the company needs. So it is beyond my control at this point. #otalk
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK @thebakerstron In terms of Self-diff patients it highlights why they’re a risk and raises others’ awareness of why and how to effectively manage this. However risks do change as patients progress - skill development to counteract is essential! #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 4......
#OTalk @OTalk_
RT @icancreativity:
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK Positive outcomes of model use evidenced in service evaluation preliminary outcomes. Increased attendance levels and increased function after session attendance to statistical significance in 4 areas = 2 trust quality awards won! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
RT @icancreativity:
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@VdTMoCAFUK 100% seeing positive changes in our patients. Seeing people who have not engaged in OT for years, engage and enjoy OT sessions. Seeing them progress, gaining confidence in their abilities, which ultimately helps them move on #OTalk #VdTMoCA @OTalk_

@thebakerstron @VdTMoCAFUK @JadeMarie_R Hearing these success stories shared in OT office continued to spur team on to learn more and develop model’s use! #OTalk

RT @chrisMHOT:
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@AliciaRidout Proudest moment of my career to date! The team’s work was astounding and for it to be detected and recognised by others was incredible! #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 5.......
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK APOM use at CPA intervals along with numbers of sessions attended in treatment domains between APOMs listed. This was basis of Service Evaluation. #OTalk
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@OTalk_ I’m sure @CharCarpenter will explain this better but...collecting data for a service evaluation to prove the model’s effectiveness. Am due to present this (along with case study) to the clinical team next Tuesday! #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK Not sure on that one for me- but one thing I will definitely try perhaps when there is a group setting in the future- perhaps an origami group. #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@VdTMoCAFUK @lawrence89_j @OTalk_ Trying to analyse data at present. Then plan is to write up for BJOT article! #OTalk #VdTMoCA
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 6...
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@icancreativity @WintRebecca True- but when your day to day workplaces can be different, and sometimes going to multiple places a day... this makes implementing a challenge for me. #otalk
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
@VdTMoCAFUK Treatment principles are useful in planning interventions - the model doesn’t prescribe specific activities but provides guidance on how to create an environment where an individual can reach their full potential and progress to the next level of creative ability #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@OTalk_ Incredibly useful! Guides appropriate pitch of clinical Tx esp. when MDT under/overestimate abilities. Helps to ensure they pitch to correct level too. #OTalk #VdTMoCA

RT @AliciaRidout:
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@icancreativity @WintRebecca And another challenge with my work setting- even if you are at a facility for a consistent basis, you don’t necessarily see the same patients every day, especially if it is a big nursing home. #otalk

#OTalk Question 7...
#OTalk @OTalk_
Wowzer... time has flown by, final 5 mins of the official #OTalk hour.... What are you take away thoughts? and / or What are your #CPD goals as follow on from the chat?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK I will have to wait until the smoke clears with the new Medicare changes in the USA first before seeing if this model is viable for me to use. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK More groups can be a more constructive environment for me to use the model on paper. But if my workplaces still change constantly, it is hard for me to implement. #otalk
Gemma P @gemOT18
@OTalk_ As I’ve not used this model I’m interesting in learning more about its evidence with older people with mental health needs... so some investigating for me! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
RT @VdTMoCAFUK:
Charlotte Carpenter 💙 @CharCarpenter
@OTalk_ Definitely analyse full data set and publish results. Would love to support a QI project with my physical health AHP team looking at engagement using principles (where patients levels are known) whilst mentoring OTs in service to embed model #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@VdTMoCAFUK Yeah- this is a change that nobody knows the real impact yet on my work setting until it hits. So there are a lot of speculations of what might happen, but won’t truly know until October 1. #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Well that's the hour up! #OTalk Thank you everyone for such a great chat, but especially to @VdTMoCAFUK for hosting this evenings chat, great topic. Do keep chatting, we don't add the transcript to the blog for at least 24hrs.
Joanna Lawrence @lawrence89_j
Fully agree. Evidencing is key!
#OTalk @OTalk_
Thanks for a great chat all. @Helen_OTUK signing off the account now. Have fun all. #OTalk
Rob Wilson @WobRilson
@VdTMoCAFUK I’ve completed multiple task ax, used this and interview to assess a clients level then offered guidance to carers and family on how best to support the client #OTalk
