Hey peeps! #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Welcome to August's #OTalk Research. Tonight our host is @chloe_kitto Motivated to ensure her research keeps an occupation focus, @chloe_kitto will be asking us to discuss our thoughts and opinions on this important topic

OTalk @OTalk_
Welcome to everyone who is able to join us this evening. Say hello and let us know where you are tweeting from this evening #Otalk https://t.co/thDgEvNp8T
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@OTalk_ Good evening #OTalk community! I'm pumped to hear from you tonight, and so encouraged by the amount of interest I've seen leading up to this discussion tonight.
OTalk @OTalk_
Thanks @chloe_kitto for suggesting this great topic and hosting #Otalk tonight. Looking forward to your first question
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
Okay #OTalk: Q1. In your view, what is occupation-based research?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@chloe_kitto @OTalk_ Your topic seems interesting- and I know this should have global applications, too... and your discussion should also apply to occupational therapy assistants who are also qualified professionals in some countries- like USA. #otalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Question 1 from @chloe_kitto
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@BillWongOT @OTalk_ Absolutely! Anyone in the business of promoting occupation has a reason to tune in tonight :) #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Any thoughts on our first question this evening?
Dr Catriona Connell @POPPED_Project
@chloe_kitto i've never hear the phrase before. is it the type of research or the content of the research? #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@chloe_kitto My definition will be- research on interventions that utilize occupations in OT practice. The use of occupations can vary from client to client, as well as the therapy practitioners who are facilitating such interventions. #otalk

Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@POPPED_Project #OTalk I imagine it could be both. If we are to provide evidence that #occupationaltherapy is unique and effective, should our research have more of an occupation focus to it?
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@chloe_kitto I don't know much about it but I'd guess similar to occupational science research; looking at the form & meaning of specific occupations? #OTalk
OTMargaret @margaret_ot
@OTalk_ Hi, I am lurking from Dartford, #OTalk I'm passionate about our Occupation based work, we deal with daily life skills and need to keep this focus. Article mentions other professions upskilling in many areas, and we need to be aware and work hard to demonstrate our unique skills.

@chloe_kitto #OTalk qualitative research aimed at gaining an understanding of occupation in relation to lived experience, quantitative research aimed at evaluating occupation as intervention or extent of change in a population
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto

Hello sorry bit late #OTalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@POPPED_Project The article I cited in the blog warns OTs of being skills-focused in research rather than occupation-focused at the risk of our skills being adopted by other clinicians. It's an interesting comment... #OTalk
Alex Smith @YmchwilStroc
@BillWongOT @chloe_kitto I was also thinking occupation-based ‘interventions’ too but where does occupation end at both the lower level (bodily functions that facilitate occupations) and the higher level (social participation etc.) #OTalk

@DrWMB Ah! That's a great questions too...but no, I was more wanting to establish how I could best keep an occupation-focus in my research so as to give evidence to our uniqueness, rather than a specific skill. #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Some great points raised and debates starting already from question 1. I think question 2 will carry that on. What is NOT occupation-based research? #Otalk

Thank you for sharing #Otalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@chloe_kitto I’m finding it hard to answer this. So much of the research I interact with ‘links’ to occupation, even if it’s not directly about occupation #otalk

@colourful_ot #OTalk I think that's right, and I think this is an easier question to answer than #1!

OTalk @OTalk_
How can we ensure occupation is explicit in our research and evidence base? #Otalk
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@chloe_kitto #OTalk IMHO any activities that would be considered purposeful activity
Dr Catriona Connell @POPPED_Project
@chloe_kitto not sure its quite right - but its a start - would only work with intervention effectiveness studies #otalk
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto @Louisepenny87 I suppose it’s about capturing the thinking that takes place. So much research around on the benefits of music/gardening/walking etc, but it’s not critical & doesn’t reveal the thinking behind each decision #otalk

@chloe_kitto #OTalk I agree @Louisepenny87 I guess research that is not primarily about occupation is not occupation based research??
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OTalk_ Maybe we can include it in the article titles? #otalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@DrWMB @Louisepenny87 #OTalk Yes! Exactly. I think what makes research occupation-based is our occupational clinical reasoning...and so our research needs to evidence THAT.
Charlie Chung @chungsongyau

@chloe_kitto So perhaps research which doesn’t explore or discuss how the research impacts occupational performance outcomes? but I guess the results could still have implications for occupational performance even if this was not considered?! 🤯 #otalk
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto It’s something that has to be revisited. For the Living with Psychosis research, I vetoed any focus on managing medication. I regret that now, as it’s a huge part of living with chronic illness. But I was wary of losing occupational focus #Otalk
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@OTalk_ #OTalk IMHO would suggest that where activities carry significant risks for the patient, or where there is little purpose for them in that activity, whether direct or as a mechanism for training in another skill, e.g. use of modalities in biomechanical approach to improve balance

Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@chloe_kitto I think as occupational therapists we're in the habit of linking everything back to occupation so it's hard for us to look at a study and say "that's not about occupation" since there's always some connection #OTalk
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto @Louisepenny87 For Creek’s Occupational Therapy & Mental Health 6th edition we are avoiding “clinical” reasoning, preferring term “professional” reasoning #OTalk more scope beyond decision making
Alex Smith @YmchwilStroc
@chloe_kitto Occupation is complex and multifaceted. This presents unique challenges for research but there have been huge strides forward in methods to develop & evaluate complex and messy interventions so we shouldn’t shy away from applying them to occupation-based research #OTalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@POPPED_Project @DrWMB #OTalk Do you have any thoughts about what methodology would be most useful to capture the occupational thinking behind an intervention?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

#OTalk Q4. Is it important that OT research be occupation-focused? Why?
Rose Wilkinson @rosewilkOT
@chloe_kitto I think sometimes OT interventions are not always Occupation-based, but focused on enabling occupations as a result / goal #OTalk
Alex Smith @YmchwilStroc
@chloe_kitto I was thinking the recent @theRCOT guidance on complex interventions https://t.co/Ypm9SQUlsa and the @The_MRC Complex Intervention guidelines https://t.co/obFjYcD4KL but also for quali types methods such as phenomenological analysis #OTalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@DrWMB @POPPED_Project Great signposts - thank you! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@chloe_kitto @colourful_ot I think this depends. We also need our clinicians' help. So, institutions should partner up with clinicians on this matter. #otalk
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto @colourful_ot For me, participatory action research with people directly involved (service users, frontline staff) gives great opportunities to create occupationally focused designs, topics and outcomes #OTalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@POPPED_Project @DrWMB #OTalk Capturing the theoretical reasons why.... that's great.
Charlie Chung @chungsongyau
@chloe_kitto Oops #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@chloe_kitto Yes- especially in this day and age with governments and policy makers need evidence to justify why we are needed in all the settings we claim we have abilities to be involved in. #otalk
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@POPPED_Project @chloe_kitto @DrWMB #OTalk In my experience in employer purchased healthcare, it is essential for any methodologies to capture the key metrics that are required to measure efficacy of interventions.
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto @Louisepenny87 We first discussed it for 5th edition, several years ago. The feeling was that many occupational therapists do not work in clinical settings. Professional was more appropriate and inclusive. #otalk

Rose Wilkinson @rosewilkOT
@chloe_kitto I guess it comes down to the clinical reasoning behind the interventions - is the wrist splint given to support a patient to engage in an occupation? - and that could be both immediately and in the long run. Like you said before, a messy & super interesting topic! #OTalk

Just a few minutes left to discuss our last question. An important one and very relevant to @RCOT current research priorities agenda #Otalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@POPPED_Project @colourful_ot #OTalk I think we can show our occupational way of thinking (assessing + treating) even if our research is not specifically focused on a single occupation..

@POPPED_Project @colourful_ot @chloe_kitto This was the subject of my #RCOT2019 talk. It's the doing that's important, not the particular activity. 🙂 #otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@chloe_kitto Collaborating with people from other professions (e.g. doing a study with SLT researchers on how engaging in a particular occupation affects communication skills) would get the message out to a wider audience #OTalk

@TinaRodwell1 #OTalk Hello Ms. Rodwell, I haven't heard anything further as yet, but though you may like to follow @heatherawwood if you are not already. She is highly skilled in examining behaviours of the NHS
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto I’m not sure it’s helpful. I used to get very tired of student projects on animal assisted therapy and mindfulness. I guess they’re interventions, but they didn’t bear any relation to my practice experience #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @POPPED_Project
@Keirwales @colourful_ot @chloe_kitto depends on the therapeutic goal. board games may be inappropriate for some people #otalk
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
@chloe_kitto @Keirwales @POPPED_Project @colourful_ot Yes, that makes much more sense #Otalk

hard to believe that is our hour up. An very interesting chat tonight, lots of food for thought. Make sure to search #Otalk Lots of chats going on which you may have missed. Keep your eye out for the transcript later this week
Wendy Bryant @DrWMB
Thanks @chloe_kitto that was interesting, got to go now. Goodnight all #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Thank you to our host @chloe_kitto I'm sure you'll agree she did a great job and got us all thinking about this very important issue. @NikkiDanielsOT signing off the #Otalk account
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@OTalk_ #OTalk thank you.
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
@OTalk_ #OTalk Thank you to all the OTs who contributed. I've loved following all the discussions (and will continue to over the next half hour, i suspect!) Thank you for taking a practical and supportive interested in our beloved #occupationaltherapy.
OTalk @OTalk_
Please do keep sharing your thoughts with @chloe_kitto #Otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@POPPED_Project @chloe_kitto Maybe a bit of both? Research into specific occupations is nice to have because different occupations will involve different skill sets, have different cultural meanings, different risks etc. which might be relevant to our reasoning #OTalk
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
#OTalk Clinician burnout and Occupational Health, another possible topic as well as ME/CFS
Cheryl OT @otnotes
So needed. Outside of the clinic, people do not exist in a bubble or silo #otalk #OTResearch #ot365
Dr Catriona Connell @POPPED_Project
Thanks @chloe_kitto for tonights discussion topic #OTalk
Alex Smith @YmchwilStroc
@OTalk_ @chloe_kitto @NikkiDanielsOT Huge thanks to @chloe_kitto for hosting tonight’s @OTalk_ lots for us all to consider in relation to occupation, which is at the core of our practice and professional identity #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@POPPED_Project @chloe_kitto I think research helps us see things we might miss, like (to come back to the earlier example) I might think I know what risks are associated with playing board games but doing research into it might uncover something I hadn't thought of #OTalk
Chloe Kitto @chloe_kitto
Thank you @NikkiDanielsOT for your support tonight in helping me host the #OTalk Research conversation! What a thrilling 60 minutes! @theRCOT have commissioned a research survey to help identify their strategies and priorities for OT research - please find it and fill it in!

@chloe_kitto I'd like to see more research on involvement in politics as an occupation (e.g. online activism, attending protests, running for political positions) #OTalk
