@ot_colchester @OTalk_ welcome to #OTalk any questions just ask.
Leanne Field @leafieldot
@mrkwhtmnOT @otalk #OTalk and #GBBO - my tuesday night is set :-D Interesting topic Mark!
Jessica Jackson @xjessicakate18x
@mrkwhtmnOT I was sat in a GP practice the other day, saw physio leaflets but nothing about OT! Need to spread the word to those who need us #otalk
Deborah Harrison @DebbiiHarrison
Evening #OTalk, the blog is great! I’ve got my cup of tea & I’m ready 💚 https://t.co/uCOoFyAEHx
#OTalk @OTalk_
@mrkwhtmnOT Peeps might just need a min to settle in... but don't worry it will be all go soon enough! #OTalk

@mrkwhtmnOT Social media & blogs for first person perspectives, but more is needed in mainstream broadcast and print media to reach the public #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
As a former journalist and graphic designer this topic is something I'm very interested in #otalk
Kathryn Fox @OccupationalFox
Here for #OTalk again this week! Excited to hear what everyone has to say 😊
Adam Ferry @AdamFerry3
@mrkwhtmnOT @UKTherapyServ supply gp practices with service leaflets explaining role and potential of intervention #OTalk
Kelly M @OTontheTracks
@mrkwhtmnOT If love to see more #OccupationalTherapy within fictional drama as this could increase understanding of role if done right #OTalk
Maggie Ruth Morton @SensationalOT
Best promotion would be publishing studies showing our role, single case studies in local media, Trust publications, social media... #OTalk https://t.co/cHrXmOGJ42
Charlie Chung @chungsongyau
@mrkwhtmnOT #OTalk the challenge is all the "noise" out there. Human interest stories can grab attention. Recent Parkinson's videos were talking points

@mrkwhtmnOT It’s easy to think the value of printed media is declining but you have to think about where potential clients would read about us #OTalk

Just lurking this week, hi all #otalk
Jessica Jackson @xjessicakate18x
Also, docu-dramas behind the scenes in hospital/GP but no mention of OT! #otalk
Deborah Harrison @DebbiiHarrison
#OTalk Q1 I talk about occupational therapy as much as I can on my social media & blog to try & reach more people who haven’t heard of it https://t.co/QzZIVQaIIS
Kathryn Fox @OccupationalFox
@mrkwhtmnOT Inclusion on programs eg. Casualty etc. would go a long way if accurate #OTalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@OTontheTracks @mrkwhtmnOT More needs to be done in dramas such as #Holbycity that are a correct representation of OT, sometimes they just don't get it right #OTalk
The power of inclusive cycling @JanetPaske
My take is to think about who we want to promote ourselves to and then to think about where we will find them #otalk

@xJessicaKate18x Get very frustrated by this! #OTalk
Sarah Sharland @SarahSharland19
@OTalk_ @mrkwhtmnOT This has me thinking! As an OT, I rarely see OT bein promoted on social media #otalk
Jessica Jackson @xjessicakate18x
@LeaFieldOT @mrkwhtmnOT Exactly! I also think for 'proactive' healthcare, people need to be able to access us not during a crisis #otalk
The power of inclusive cycling @JanetPaske
... so patients can be found in surgeries, GPs can be found via RGCP on twitter etc #otalk
Motiv8 NW Wales @motiv8nwwales
@mrkwhtmnOT #otalk we need to promote value of #OccupationalTherapy in #socialprescribing
Kelly M @OTontheTracks
@xJessicaKate18x That is a very valid point. We know OT must be there but why dont we see it. #otalk
Amie Jayne @Amie_OT
@JanetPaske And how best to fit the audiences, you don't want to publish something aimed at guardian readers in the sun #OTalk
Jessica Jackson @xjessicakate18x
@OTontheTracks Exactly! Keep seeing physio/SW mentioned on 'Ambulance' - want to scream at them about OT #otalk
Alexander: OT @Alexander_P_OT
I've seen #OT mentioned in #StarTrek fanfiction. Seems like more of the same could not hurt. #OTalk
Sophie Maynard @SophieMaynard8

@mrkwhtmnOT I definitely agree with the leaflets displayed in a GP practice & it would be good to have a hospital based TV programme about OT #OTalk

@OTontheTracks @mrkwhtmnOT I love to watch #HolbyCity but can't stand the poor #OT references #OTalk

Very much agree. We have such a crucial and varied role but you are right it needs to be portrayed correctly! #OTalk https://t.co/ykloDcqndi
Jessica Jackson @xjessicakate18x
@mrkwhtmnOT @LeaFieldOT But it shouldn't - we have ageing pop, family members are in prime position to know about us and aid in self-management #otalk

@JanetPaske This has been my ever evolving social media strategy. That is why I am not satisfied with 9k followers still... lol! #otalk

@SophieMaynard8 A oppurtunity for real life OTs to advice on shows. Its common place to have real life surgeons advising on set, why not OTs too. #Otalk

@SensationalOT @mrkwhtmnOT As I said in my media club session, I won’t go for 5. I think I will become too materialistic to chase that number in my career. #otalk

@oscar_tangoXVII @BethjmOT @LeaFieldOT @mrkwhtmnOT But at the same time, aren’t we supposed to be respectful to our clients no matter their ethnicity and sex orientations? #otalk
Charlie Chung @chungsongyau
@Amie_OT @DebbiiHarrison #Otalk Activity is a useful concrete concept for an opener and then we can bring in "meaningful" and define occupation and how we move on
