@OTalk_ for me its about highlighting what is unique about the profession of OT #Otalk
Rachel Student OT @Rachel_SOT
@OTalk_ @OT_rach Hello! #OTalk
Emma Rodrigues @EmRodriguesOTS
The uniqueness of yourself as a therapist, what makes you different. I'd say all the opportunities Iv had as an OT student and all the people I have met have influenced me as a therapist! Ie. Conferences, educators, lectures, people - things we learn erm so everything really haha
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@FionaPageOT To me, its putting on the OT cap! Its my identifiy as an OT student, considering all things occupation. Thinking back to all the first year modules!💚 #otalk
Katrina Baldry @KatrinaBaldryOT
@FionaPageOT My green trousers....!! Not that people who don't wear green trousers don't have professional identity!! I worked hard for the privilege and am so proud to wear them...#OTalk

@OTalk_ Hello @FionaPageOT 👋Q1 #OTalk mine has changed shape having being formed from different professional roles, education and other development. People, places and occupations have influenced it.
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@FionaPageOT good question- I think it is what sets us apart from other professional disciplines that we work with. After all, not only we need to explain such to the other multidisciplinary members we work with, we also have to do so publicly, too. #otalk

@FionaPageOT For me it's seeing myself as an occupational therapist and seeing that as involving a certain set of skills, values, and theory. #OTalk
Fiona Page @FionaPageOT
@KatrinaBaldryOT I only ever wore mine on my last placement, but still remember feeling very proud #OTalk
Katrina Baldry @KatrinaBaldryOT
@FionaPageOT In all seriousness...for me, its about holistic assessment, client-centeredness and working towards individualised goals of the patient...I don't think there's many professionals who say they work that way #OTalk
JasminOT @JasminLaffy
@FionaPageOT Putting on the OT lens and making my practice patient centred. Sometimes I can't turn off that OT lens even at home 😛 #OTalk

JasminOT @JasminLaffy
@KatrinaBaldryOT @FionaPageOT All my favourite things about being an OT! #OTalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
For me it means feeling grounded & knowing yourself. Time, confidence & experience influenced this. When I was newly qualified, professional identity was something I struggled w especially when rotating. Trying 2 find ur place in a new team & setting can be very unsettling #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@FionaPageOT My professional identity has been influenced by my education as well as comparing myself and modelling myself against other OTs, and I think also by how I've learned to describe my job to other people #OTalk
Dr Lynne Goodacre @LynneGoodacre
Mine too @emmaspellmanOT #OTalk
Georgia Oakes @GeorgiaOakesOT
@FionaPageOT As a 3rd yr student there are external factors which are part of my professional identity, such as RCOT membership and being part of my OT cohort. There are also internal factors such as my values which I believe are important in a therapist based role such as compassion. #OTalk

@mrsmcinburtott @emmaspellmanOT @OTalk_ that's why I decide to unleash a dream final in a leadership class I am hopefully teaching- my students will do a mock TEDx open mic audition to a curator. I need to grill them to do this in high stakes situations. Things will only get easier from there. :) #otalk

@laughingmind @dmay_ot that must be really tricky - we have been watching it on the news here in the UK. the acute displacement of people has such a negative impact on every day tasks. are OTs involved in the supporting services ? #OTalk
Amir dar @AmirdarOT
@OTalk_ Ensuring we stay client centred , and understanding the true meaning behind their occupations and not having pre conceived opinions on what that occupation should be #OTalk

Nat Jones @natlouj
@FionaPageOT So many influences make up my professional identity and its continually evolving, its not a fixed state or concept its organic as you develop in your career and personally. There are some key 🗝 features such as 'occupation focused, person focused, environment focused' 💭🤔#OTalk

@dmay_ot @FionaPageOT @JasminLaffy Or your family. I "diagnosed" my grandfather with dementia 5 years ago & made lots of recommendations to my mum who is caring for him. He now has a alzeihmers dx & a neuro community OT, who uses some of the interventions I recommended. #OTalk

Fiona Page @FionaPageOT
So a passionate Occupation focused proud profession- but Question 2 How has your professional identity changed since you qualified or started training? #OTalk
sian burgess @mrsmcinburtott
@dmay_ot @KatrinaBaldryOT @FionaPageOT do you think a uniform or some sort of identifier is useful to highlight our professional identifier to others? I think it many settings it does #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@FionaPageOT Being able to focus on activities that are meaningful to my clients. My clients have been a big influence on my professional identity and still do now #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@CeeCeeOT Sure @theRCOT can help with this! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
My external factor- It's always a delicate balance because I am also an online influencer and I also need to do some autism self advocacy work from time to time. So, I am hoping to use my proud accomplishments from what I have overcome to share OT's distinct value. #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@FionaPageOT Ooh- I think being around the TEDx world- last 2 years were being a curator and now I am part of another team, that really has been a cool opportunity to work with other powerful individuals while also promoting OT at the same time when I have the opportunity. #otalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@francesca0587 @FionaPageOT It definitely helps if your team understand & value occupation. I love any opportunity for MDT working & building a better understanding of what we can all add to a patient's journey, whilst working towards the same goal. #OTalk

Katrina Baldry @KatrinaBaldryOT
@emmaspellmanOT @Ruth_Hawley @OTalk_ @FionaPageOT I truly believe that because we are such a small profession (in comparison to other professions), there is this unwritten rule re: the community feel of OT's when they work together/ support each other & helps to maintain professional identity #OTalk

kt marie @KtBergson
@FionaPageOT Q1 identity means knowing what you do and explaining it in everyday language to those you work with. I think OTs are challenged to convey the breadth and creativity that is possible in the profession. influences= mentors, service users, other professionals, study/uni #otalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@mrsmcinburtott @FionaPageOT That's true, aside from confidence though I think I have a stronger professional identity in the sense that I have a clearer idea of what makes me an OT rather than for example an activity coordinator or support worker 😊 #OTalk

Sophie is my name. @ciderwithsophie
@Ruth_Hawley @FionaPageOT In a way, I think "generic working" focuses u to strengthen your sense of professional identity even more, so it becomes intrinsic and more creative. #OTalk
Nat Jones @natlouj

@FionaPageOT definitely. TEDx event curating is a pretty new frontier for OT's to explore. We as a profession are quite new to it even though many of us are fans of these videos and some of us have given talks on that stage. There is a lot of potential, but there's also a lot of risk. #otalk

@FionaPageOT For me, the ability and confidence to articulate professional identity is crucial. Having a good professional identity is all very well but unless we talk about it and tell others about it, it makes very little impact. #OTalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
So true! I would have never been able to train as an OT without the grant or bursary. It is a real shame that Government scraped these. And as a result, there are OT shortages today across the UK. The Government have to bring these back to help our workforce to grow! #OTalk

Sophie Maynard @SophieMaynard8
@FionaPageOT To continue adding to the evidence base. There is a lot of movement and role development going on such as social prescribing where OTs feel "we already do that" but if we aren't evidencing it and shouting about it, how can we expect people to know #OTalk
Sophie Maynard @SophieMaynard8
@FionaPageOT I feel it's the holistic thinking/approach that underpins my OT identity. It becomes apparent in practice that a lot of other professions are focused on just what they are doing and as OTs we tend to sew all of that together because we are looking at the person as a whole #otalk

@JadeElizabethOT @emmaspellmanOT @FionaPageOT The transition from student to newly qualified can be a challenge at times (it was for me). Peers, colleagues, employers and preceptorship are all good sources of support for this stage of your career journey and in continuing to grow your professional identity #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@emmaspellmanOT @KatrinaBaldryOT @OTalk_ @FionaPageOT Good point. Feeling a sense of belonging to the OT community is definitely linked with my professional identity. #DBBB Doing, being, becoming and belonging are all in there. #OTalk

@FionaPageOT Definitely strengthened- partly due to my MSc and re engaging with OT theory but also due to an opportunity to work in OT education. Both at the university and in my health board role I am surrounded in creativity and enthusiasm for the profession and it makes me proud! #OTalk
