VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
Q1) What is your experience of using the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability in practice? Please specify what area of practice you are currently working in. #OTalk #VdTMOCA
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
Hello peeps! #otalk
Becky French @becky_1983
I am currently working in CAMHS low secure and I am implementing #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

Rachel Hall @RachHallster
@VdTMoCAFUK I work in LD medium secure and my experience is of using MOHOST. I have not used the VdTMoCA before but interested in learning more #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
Alicia Ridout @AliciaRidout

Becky French @becky_1983
As lead for 3 CAMHS and a female low secure my colleague's felt that the model was going to be more effective #OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@OTalk_ I started in forensic but I'm no longer clinical but used it with staff and I sue it with anyone I meet #OTalk
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
Q2) In your experience, what have been the barriers/challenges to implementing the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability in your practice? How have you overcome this? What strategies did you utilise? #OTalk #VdTMoCA.
One OT and a Dog @WintRebecca
I’m not familiar with this model of practice but would like to be, I work with people who are homeless, would it be relevant? What are the best resources to learn more #VdTMoCA ? #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
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@WintRebecca Hi Rebecca - I will send out information at the end of the chat for access to resources to learn more about the model. Will also stay around at the end if you have any questions #OTalk

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

VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@CharCarpenter Hi Charlotte - how did you overcome the challenge WRT expectations of leaders/service managers in your service? What practice steps did you take? #OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@WintRebecca It's relevant with anyone, but in order to learn it you need to see clients regularly. Unless you know the model well, it's really hard to work out a person's level of creative ability without seeing them doing, and without info across Occ performance areas #OTalk.
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
Q3) How do you think the implementation of the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability has changed your practice? Think re assessment, developing treatment, evidencing effectiveness of interventions, reports, service user engagement, profile of the OT profession. #OTalk #VdTMOCA

#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 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_
Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK In my current role - the main challenge has been implementing within a community post - which is also the only OT role in stalking in the world (to my knowledge). Minimal evidence of community use meant that I had to use trial, error and reflection (still does) 1/2 #OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@BillWongOT @WintRebecca #OTalk What's your setting/service?

Q4) What have been your particular highlights since implementing the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability into your practice? Please share your experiences on what has worked well, best practices! #OTalk #VdTMOCA
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
Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK Just because there isnt previous evidence or examples of its use in similar settings wasnt a reason to avoid its use - its like the old chicken and egg analogy. All models have to be tried first before they can build evidence base. That process takes time but is worth it #OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@thebakerstron @VdTMoCAFUK #OTalk #VdTMOCA Yes, we really need community OTs who are using the model to share their knowledge and get together some written accounts at least, e.g. OTNews, and get a piece of research done. Anyone interested?
chris OT @chrisMHOT

Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK In high security - embedding an intensive 12 week programme for a patient on long term segregation (had been for 4 years) alongside an OTA and nursing. Supported him using SD and SP principles as we progressed. He cooked off ward for the first time ever, made a cup of 1/2 #OTalk

VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@chrisMHOT Thank you for sharing Chris - I work in High Secure Forensic Mental Health & this certainly is a real positive of the model ... that you can work with patients much earlier in admission. #OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@VdTMoCAFUK #OTalk #VdTMOCA making sessions on weekly OT programme level specific so groups are planned to a level of creative ability, and having a waiting list and referral system. Changed everything. Same approach reported at the VdTMoCA conference a few weeks ago.

Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK Specifically to stalking - that the 'higher functioning' service users; including those at higher levels of creative ability - are higher risk of commiting more serious further offences. This has been extremely valuable during MAPPA meetings and case reviews with police. #OTalk
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
Q5) Has treatment been effective since you have implemented the Vona du Toit Model of Creative Ability? If so, how have you evidenced this? How have you shared with within your service user/service/clinical team? #OTalk #VdTMOCA

Alicia Ridout @AliciaRidout
@becky_1983 Does it integrate with an electronic patient record at all?? #otalk
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@CharCarpenter @lawrence89_j @OTalk_ Sounds fantastic - can't wait to read the outcome. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk Question 6...
Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK Ideally routine APOM measurement. But in reality - any data that can be captured. In community role it is extremely hard to fully assess each OPA. Therefore use of CPA and formulations are vital - which then contribute to overall intervention. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
#OTalk
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@BillWongOT @WintRebecca #OTalk #VdTMOCA Then it is likely that clients are mainly on the Self-differentiation, Self-presentation and Passive Participation levels, possibly going into the Tone level at end of life. There's lots of OTs using the model with older people.
Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK Any data that is captured. If you have no evidence or data then it never happened - and you cant prove effectiveness. This is imperative in proving worth and - for us - in trying to secure further funding. #OTalk

@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

My site is having a relaunch and would love to have some constructive cristism at some point #OTalk
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@BillWongOT Thanks Bill - I will be sending out a link to the website shortly. You will be able to explore the model further via the link. #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

@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
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
@JadeMarie_R @CharCarpenter @lawrence89_j @suzanne_ot Definitely - this certainly is a positive of the APOM. It is extremely sensitive to change. #OTalk
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
Baker @thebakerstron
@VdTMoCAFUK @OTalk_ However I also think model and those using it need to challenge themselves to reach out further. Easy to share/tell those already using the model how good it is; the challenge is proving it to those who dont. Challenge the status quo and back it up with evidence #OTalk
VdTMoCA Foundation UK @VdTMoCAFUK
Food for thought #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.
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@OTalk_ #OTalk Very interesting, thank you for introducing this to me, I am interested in learning more.
Becky @beckygowerOT
@OTalk_ So many! Key considerations for me were around sharing theory and service effectiveness with MDT and management, using model for clinical reasoning in care plans and all the amazing feedback OT's have had from their SUs!! Feeling inspired 💚 #otalk

Fully agree. Evidencing is key!

@LouiseJeffries4 This sounds fascinating Louise. Look forward to you sharing and contributing further to the evidence base. Your recent article in @OTnews was an interesting read. #OTalk

@VdTMoCAFUK does not currently provide formal training in the model, but supports clinicians in learning about the model & in developing knowledge & skills for application. #OTalk #VdTMoCA
Dr Wendy Sherwood @icancreativity
@VdTMoCAFUK I think we should be challenging OT programmes who are not including the model in curriculum just because there isn't the published research like MOHO. OT pre-reg education should reflect practice, and lecturers could support OTs to do research & publish.#OTalk #VdTMOCA
