@OTalk_ The perceived lack of support (through uni we have mentors,lecturers, and practice educators) that all of a sudden stops and expectation that as a NQ OT you will just hit the ground running with a caseload.. #OTalk
ᏕᏂᏋᏒLᎩᏁ 💚💚 @sherlynmelody
#otalk more moving and handling practice & functional assessments would have been good to prepare me. However I think it would be so difficult to be prepared if you don’t know where you will end up.

Becky Cooper @beckycooper___
@emmaspellmanOT Although I do wonder as a newly qualified how truly prepared you can be.. with the breadth of the OT role its impossible for everything to be taught and learnt. But then I guess that's part of preparing for practice- finding out about the role before starting/research #OTalk

@emmaspellmanOT #OTalk As a new practitioner, I naively believed having an ot degree under my belt was all I needed to practice. As an experienced practitioner, ‘prepared’ now means the degree plus knowing about the organisation, clinical specialty and up to date EBP

@emmaspellmanOT #otalk one of the 1st things she did was try to understand my learning style. She took me through the OT process. She showed me how to apply theory to practice, in a Nhs setting. Something I struggled with in ACS setting!

@emmaspellmanOT As a clinical educator for my 1 week placements, I give students plenty of time to ask me questions about what they will face in future placements and eventually in practice. #otalk
