So my first question to you all is this "What makes us (occupational therapists) feel we lack recognition at work and in broader society? #OTalk
Rachel @OT_rach
@OccScienceBae @OTalk_ @OTCoachUK @TheOTShow Thanks #OTalk I’m still very excited
The OT Service @theotservice
@OTCoachUK Our name hinders our recognition #OTalk

#OTalk! Happening right now.

Good question...what’s everyone’s thoughts? #OTalk
Emma Robinson @EmmaRobinsonOT
Good evening all! And congrats @OT_rach 😍💍 Tonight’s #OTalk is sure to be an interesting one!
OTalk @OTalk_
Question 1 #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
For me it is that health & wellbeing solutions are still spoken about often only in medical terms #OTalk
Juliette Truman @Jt12Truman
@OTCoachUK #OTalk perhaps when people don’t value the power of occupation and believe what we do is common sense?!
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTCoachUK people don’t understand what we do in the same way they understand what other professionals do #otalk
The OT Service @theotservice
@OTCoachUK Also how we articulate what we do and the impact we make. OTs are our own worst advocates as we do not value ourselves #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
RT @theotservice: @OTCoachUK Our name hinders our recognition #OTalk
Holly Sprake-Hill @HollytheOT
@OTCoachUK #OTalk hmm I think when other professions seem to be heard more than us. Our nursing and Physio colleagues seem to be much better at making themselves heard in the larger context
Holleigh Bryan 💚🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 @HolleighLouise
@OTCoachUK I think often the general public and even other HCPs do not know what we do. And there are occasions where other HCPs do not consider our role important and instead see us as ‘basket weavers’. the fact that OTs are not already in roles where an OT would help massively! #OTalk
Lucy Pearce @LucyJPearce
@OTCoachUK #OTalk I think for me, it’s two-fold... there’s that stigma that ‘no one knows what we do’, and in many services we are sometimes pitched as a ‘jack of all trades’ profession. Which sadly often translates to a lack of recognition
OT Child (Kat Carruthers) @OT_Child
@OTCoachUK when people question what you do as a profession you’re already on the back foot so not only do you have to explain your profession you THEN have to explain your role which in a non-traditional practice setting people don’t always understand and value what you can offer #OTalk
Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@OTCoachUK I think the term Occupational Therapist could be a factor in this - it makes sense to us as we understand occupation and it's importance, however, to the lay person occupation does not mean this? Also, when asked to explain the role it's difficult to explain in short time! #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@Jt12Truman Yep I reckon so. Magic pill fixes person... is that what people just want? #OTalk
The OT Show @TheOTShow
RT @kerri_schOT: @OTCoachUK people don’t understand what we do in the same way they understand what other professionals do #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OTCoachUK there’s a lack of understanding & a lack of coverage (in the press) of what we do/what impact we have #otalk
Bel Youngson @OTBelY

Holly Sprake-Hill @HollytheOT
That said - it’s not that other professions are louder it’s more that we aren’t loud enough! We need to get better at celebrating what we do and how we do it #OTalk
Rachel @OT_rach
@OTCoachUK Press only ever talking about Dr and nurses, bringing seen as the entertainment, rather than therapy as our interventions look easy #Otalk
The OT Service @theotservice
@OTCoachUK #OTalk we need our professional body to speak and comment daily on all aspects of occupation to raise our profile. We as individuals need to do it as well
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
RT @OTCoachUK: For me it is that health & wellbeing solutions are still spoken about often only in medical terms #OTalk
Becky French @becky_1983
I dont think we get ourselves out there enough and talk about what we do and our impact #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@LucyJPearce I think the Jack of all Trades is an issue as it seems like we do everything for everyone and that confuses people #OTalk
jess_obrien @jessobr59796310
@OTCoachUK #OTalk the acknowledgement of the good work that other professionals do in the news and media
Holleigh Bryan 💚🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 @HolleighLouise
@kerri_schOT @OTCoachUK Completely agree. I am yet to see a hospital TV show where an OT and their role is depicted! #OTalk
Emma Robinson @EmmaRobinsonOT
@OTCoachUK #OccupationalTherapy is so diverse and unique...our biggest strength is also our biggest barrier to articulating and advocating the incredible work we can do across so many settings...hospitals, community, schools, prisons, charity settings, the list is endless! #OTalk
Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@LucyJPearce @OTCoachUK Interesting point - highlights the breadth of our role and the way in which Occupational Therapists are sometimes the 'go-to' profession for continued input when all other profession's treatment is complete #OTalk

ed sum 🏳️‍🌈 @musedNeuroOT
When a friend tells me that when discussing new services for cancer patients, the opinion in the room was we only provide equipment - she (a non-OT) promptly corrected them #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@theotservice @TheOTShow @OTCoachUK i agree! & i think the fact that our roles can vary so much depending on the setting we work in doesn’t help with peoples understanding of OT #otalk
The OT Show @TheOTShow
What could OTs do to help improve this? #OTalk
Holly Sprake-Hill @HollytheOT
I should add though that the @theRCOT has improved beyond recognition with the work it is doing to promote OT 🙌 #OTalk
Lucy Pearce @LucyJPearce
@OTCoachUK #OTalk I have to say, since I’ve started practicing as an OT (admittedly only my 3rd week), I’ve made a conscious effort to provide more explanation to patients and colleagues alike!
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@HolleighLouise @kerri_schOT I see the occasional OT on TV in a bit role but never as an ongoing character, but mind you, I can't recall a physio being an ongoing one #OTalk
Juliette Truman @Jt12Truman

@theotservice @OTCoachUK So what should we be called @theotservice ? #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@Jt12Truman @HollytheOT Yes I agree but who do we need to demonstrate our impact too? Who in society needs to hear? #OTalk
ed sum 🏳️‍🌈 @musedNeuroOT
@HollytheOT @OTCoachUK #OTalk I think many professions, including physio and nursing, feel the general public do not understand what they do. There are many smaller AHP groups that people do not know about

OT Child (Kat Carruthers) @OT_Child
OT is often about quality of life and it’s life and death scenarios, survival and immediacy that often make the headlines rather than “OT gave x their life back”. Life in numbers/years is often quoted and valued more than how that life is lived on a daily basis #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OTCoachUK I think recently there's been more recognition in other fields of the importance of activities (eg social prescribing in medicine, the "love activity, hate exercise" campaign in PT) which is great but can make OTs feel like nobody noticed us doing that all along! #OTalk
The OT Show @TheOTShow

Lucy Pearce @LucyJPearce
@beckycooper___ @OTCoachUK #OTalk exactly! I think from my experiences on placement and now in work, it is far easier to pin down our role in specialist services, but more difficult in more generic settings, which is where we have most public exposure as a profession
Holleigh Bryan 💚🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 @HolleighLouise
@kerri_schOT @OTCoachUK Definitely! Casualty is the worst for this, they even had doctors doing kitchen assessments a short while back and the only OT I saw mentioned did not show the role, but was just a background character! #otalk
Toks Odutayo @TokunboTweetz
@OTCoachUK As well as lack of understanding of our profession, I think there can sometimes be some role blurring issues. Especially when some other AHPs are occupationally focused (rare find, but there are some out there), some may struggle to see what we are doing differently #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@TheOTShow promote ourselves more, get on TV/radio/ in publications as much as possible #otalk
Holly Sprake-Hill @HollytheOT
I’d like to see more national recognition awards for OTs in practice, like nursing have Kate Grainger Nurses and Queen’s Nurses #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@colourful_ot Yeah I feel that about social prescribing... I keep telling people, "we have been doing this for a hundred years and now you get it ?!?!? #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT

@LucyJPearce @OTCoachUK #OTalk would definitely agree! Even in my OT assistant role it would be difficult to explain the breadth of what we do. Love that you've been providing explanation of the role to patients and colleagues!! #OTalk
Lucy Pearce @LucyJPearce
@HolleighLouise @kerri_schOT @OTCoachUK #OTalk exactly! A prime example whilst I was on placement in neuro-rehab... Holby City was running a story where doctors and nurses were leading a colleagues rehab from a brain injury! Which undermines what we do and is false representation!

Juliette Truman @Jt12Truman
@OTCoachUK @HollytheOT At all levels - empower individuals to ask for us but also those commissioning services across all sectors #OTalk we need to move away from just NHS to truly demonstrate our power
OTalk @OTalk_
You need to use the #OTalk not to @OTalk_ to join in
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
Ok so question 2 "What sort of recognition would society value and make a real difference to our profession?" #OTalk
Laura Murphy @MurphytheOT
@OT_Child @TheOTShow I agree. The focus is always on numbers over quality of life #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@OT_rach @OTCoachUK whenever the NHS is mentioned in the press, they only ever mentions Dr’s & nurses. Whilst they do an amazing job, there’s more rob roles in the NHS than just Dr’s and nurses! #otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
RT @becky_1983: I dont think we get ourselves out there enough and talk about what we do and our impact #OTalk
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTCoachUK We might also be hindered by our “holistic” approach, and the fact that we often end up doing a the random jobs that need doing. Sometimes we aren’t enough with our patients or MDTs about what our intervention actually is #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Question 2 #OTalk
Julie-Anne Lowe @julieannelowe1
@OTCoachUK The ‘common sense’ issue, sometimes our lack of ability to provide a succinct and coherent explanation, potentially being overwhelmed by professions with a larger critical mass #OTalk
Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@TheOTShow PromOTe wherever possible! Especially during occupational therapy week and forthcoming #AHPsday! #OTalk
The OT Show @TheOTShow
RT @OTCoachUK: Ok so question 2 "What sort of recognition would society value and make a real difference to our profession?" #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
Thing about TV is that production companies only priority is to make good TV and a big part of that is making it understandable for the public... 1/2 #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT
@LucyJPearce @HolleighLouise @OTCoachUK so frustrating! they need to depict the reality #otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@TokunboTweetz @OTCoachUK If occupationally-focused non-OTs are one side of the coin, the other side is OTs who aren't focused enough on occupation - I think both things can happen and both contribute to role blurring #OTalk
The OT Show @TheOTShow
@MurphytheOT @OT_Child What could OT do to improve this? #OTalk
ed sum 🏳️‍🌈 @musedNeuroOT
But I had already been speaking to her about what we could do as OTs as I was interested in getting more OT roles / exploring role-emerging placements and she had influence! What she told me was her response was fab and minds were changed! 😉 #OTalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
2/2 so it doesn't really matter that it doesn't represent OT correctly, their priority is to the viewer..... frustrating but true #OTalk

deb_OT @dmay_ot
#otalk I think one issue is that occupation means something specific to us but is a term commonly used to mean 'work' or 'work-type'. People then really struggle to connect us to something that happens in communities, in hospitals etc

Juliette Truman @Jt12Truman
@colourful_ot @OTCoachUK #OTalk sometimes it’s the language we use I recently worked with a GP who through listening to me and our talented OT students was able to help us deliver our powerful messages
Louise @Louisepenny87
@OTCoachUK Maybe we need to be apply more professional boundaries around our role #OTalk
Emma Robinson @EmmaRobinsonOT
Yes, I find this even in my small Brain Injury rehab team...we often have joint/shared goals with Psych/SLT/Physio/SUs - I perceive this is true interdiciplinary working but luckily my team really understand the skills and value of OT. Possibly confusing for SUs though #OTalk
Lucy gordon @Lucygordon83
That not all professionals & wider society understand our role fully and how much theory such as occupational science, models & frames of reference we use in our practice. Occupational therapists are often missed out of TV programmes such as documentaries and films. #OTalk
Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@colourful_ot @TokunboTweetz @OTCoachUK Sometimes habit/restrictions can create that issue I think- for example recently ive had to remind to set goals to people around equipment needs also, not just care needs! #OTALK
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@musedNeuroOT I do think that the first contact anyone has with an OT sticks in their mind and that is kinda it... if your gran gets equipment after a stroke, thats what OT is....#OTalk

Lucy Pearce @LucyJPearce
@Louisepenny87 @OTCoachUK #OTalk but conversely I’d argue they’re never random jobs... to us they are completely in context and are important to our OT process... they only seem random to others, purely due to a lack of understanding of occupational therapy
OT Child (Kat Carruthers) @OT_Child

Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot

Toks Odutayo @TokunboTweetz
@OTCoachUK I think occupational therapists need to be in more ‘everyday’/ primary setting such as schools, GPs, etc to get such recognition. This will also help in reduce the need to access secondary services, as preventative measures will be taken #OTalk
Holleigh Bryan 💚🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 @HolleighLouise
@dmay_ot #OTALK I completely agree. As health literacy is becoming a larger focus, it’s highlighting that our own profession is not health literate and accessible to anyone who does not understand our jargon
Kirsty Stanley @KEStanley

@OTCoachUK @musedNeuroOT This is so true. My grandparents have this opinion of OT, and whilst on a forensic mental health placement I was constantly telling them how OT works there as they didn't get it. This could be why the public aren't so sure about the profession. #OTalk

@beckycooper___ @OTalk_ So many patients say they don’t even know the uniforms apart and when you consider there’s the usual uniforms of the different professions and then uniforms of agency staff too which are different again it can be really confusing, it’s not surprising our role isn’t known #OTalk
Teresa Buchan @teresa_buchan
@OTCoachUK There are many people we have to influence so we have to adapt to different audiences. Having a strong leadership team in the organisation helps staff know they have support and a foundation to promote and influence. Service users have greatest impact and voice #OTalk
