#OTalk good evening all. I am here drinking @GillyGorry coffee... ๐Ÿคฃ
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@OTCoachUK I wonder if it's because it can be so difficult to describe the wide variety of our roles and our impact #otalk 1/2
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Amie_OT @OTCoachUK @TheOTShow your qualified years can go quick, just FYI. #otalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
So lurkers "I often feel OTs hid their light under a bushel - they work away & donโ€™t show how amazing they are. Do you agree? #OTalk
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@OTCoachUK Or maybe it's because we are too patient-centred and humble! #otalk 2/2
Amie Jayne๐Ÿ’š @Amie_OT
@OTCoachUK We need to be shouting too, the bigger our voices the more will realise the amazing work OTs do #OT #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK speaking of which, I actually am challenging my conference workshop attendees to do it in 2 mins next month, TEDx style! #otalk
Amie Jayne๐Ÿ’š @Amie_OT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK It's definitely hard trying to describe the variety #OT covers when explaining it #otalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
Yes I agree with both those points. Humble but also difficulty to understand! #OTalk
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@BillWongOT @OTCoachUK Have done the 'explain your job in a lift' scenario...hard work #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Amie_OT @OTCoachUK I tried out for TEDx Teen (since it's a relatively big stage) and learned that I didn't make it. But, I am glad I gave it a shot. #otalk
Alice Nicholson @AliceNicOT

Deborah Harrison ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š @DebbiiHarrison
Good evening #OTalk, I haven't joined in for a while so mainly lurking tonight https://t.co/aNVpngA3rb
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @Amie_OT @OTCoachUK @TheOTShow same year... lol! #otalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
I think @theRCOT has done some great work helping us show our value, but I still think we have a long way to go #OTalk
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@OTCoachUK I think some of this is because it can be very qualitative data- harder to shout about than quantitive numbers of other professions #otalk
Sarah Sharland (OT) @SarahSharland19
@OTCoachUK Absolutely! I'm the only OT in my service so tend to just do my own thing. #Otalk
Kathryn Fox @OccupationalFox
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK Definitely think this contributes, often talk to other students about this, think it's a big barrier to being proud of our work #OTalk
Hello my name is Jim @OT_Jim
RT @theRCOT: #OTalk tonight is on the topic of โ€œRecognition and OTโ€. 8-9pm, UK time. https://t.co/rQNvcaHob3 https://t.co/jpHnEPvBrA
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@Amie_OT @OTCoachUK My job can vary daily so trying to encompass all of our skills can feel daunting #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK yes... at least it's more wide open. When it's TEDx/TED, your sales pitch often has to be tailored. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@AliceNicOT @OTalk_ @OTCoachUK @TheOTShow @GillyGorry welcome! #otalk
Amie Jayne๐Ÿ’š @Amie_OT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK But qualitative data and findings are just as valuable! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK and for my workshop, nobody can hide. Only way to "hide" is to share the experience with trusted partner. #otalk

Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
@xJessicaKate18x @BillWongOT #otalk yes and its really hard. When I make it simple people say oh you are a coach or social worker.... if you add the word occupation...
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@Amie_OT @OTCoachUK Completely!! But when it comes to discussing with medics/commissioners the want numbers! #otalk
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@OTCoachUK @BillWongOT Completely- I get 'Like a physio' all the time! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
and speaking of speaking about #valueofot, #othillday organised by AOTA was a great opportunity for students and practitioners #otalk
Jen Gash @OTCoachUK
Whenever I do the OT thing, people are always amazed by how awesome our work is and wonder why they haven't heard of us before #OTalk
Amie Jayne๐Ÿ’š @Amie_OT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK It's a shame that qualitative data can't be considered as important when it comes to commissioners #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@xJessicaKate18x @Amie_OT @OTCoachUK and speaking to legislative officials, potential fiscal impact is king! #otalk
Maggie Ruth Morton @SensationalOT
@OTCoachUK @xJessicaKate18x @BillWongOT I think adding the word occupation is where it's at- as in occupying- all the things that keep us busy: work rest or play #OTalk
Amie Jayne๐Ÿ’š @Amie_OT
@xJessicaKate18x @OTCoachUK @BillWongOT I had this on my first placement in A&E because it was an integrated team, i was constantly described as the physio in green trousers #otalk
Jessica Jackson @xJessicaKate18x
@Amie_OT @OTCoachUK There is a push in ITU literature for quality of life outcome measures so the future may be changing! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
