Hey #OTalk, long time no speak! Looking forward to tonight's chat!
Gemma Scott @gemscottOT
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ #otalk hello! for me social prescribing is a massive part of occupational therapy, it is a non medical intervention supporting people to engage in meaningful activity in their local community
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Ooo good question. If an OT works in a GP practice they could instigate social prescribing theirselves or via a social prescriber depending of staffing #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ seems like if we are in the era of staying at home/social distancing, we will need to adapt what we can prescribe. So perhaps instead of outdoors activities (if option is not available), we can recommend some Zoom (or similar meetings) for our service users to join. #otalk
Kayleigh Wain @kayleighwainOT

Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
Social Prescribing acts as an adjunct to occupational therapy. Often community teams need to focus on essential rehab needs (the basics, eating, washing, toileting, accessing the community etc), we don't always have capacity to focus on the social needs/ leisure activities #OTalk
ChrissiS-OT 💙💚 @ChrissisOt
A1: Social prescribing is the use of activities and occupations to address physical and mental health issues, a 'new' initiative in primary care, which OT's have been encouraging for a long time!

@BillWongOT @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ #otalk - absolutely - it's about connection, doesn't need to be about connecting in the physical environment, can be social aswell
Sarah Bodell @sarah_bodell
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ As OTs we use formulation and occupational analysis to assess and guide a person towards occupational participation. I haven’t seen like workers doing that. Has anyone else? #otalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@BillWongOT @gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Good point Bill! Chances are social prescribing is happening at all at the moment! #OTalk

Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@margaretOT360 We used to use the phrase "social prescribing is everybody's responsibility, and some people's job!" in my old job (before OT...), so everyone can do a bit within their roles? Esp given OT skills!? #OTalk

@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ My understanding is that social prescribing facilitates participation in a broad range of activities... Facilitating participation in tasks is at the heart of our profession. With that in mind, there is definitely a link... #OTalk

@SalfordSPx @OTalk_ @AdamJacksonOT @House_OT #OTalk Hello Adam I am looking forward to the discussions tonight ...
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Yes- when I recommended OT's to consider hosting TEDCircles recently, we can also do this from this angle other than grassroots advocacy to general public, since such groups are intimate in nature (I heard best practice is 12 max.) #otalk
JasminOT ⓥ @JasminLaffy
@RebeccaCrouch It is! Although I don't think we have specific social prescribers, but using community activity as an intervention is very common #Otalk

Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Social prescribing recognises the health and well being benefits of recreational activities. This is what we do as OTs but we look at all occupational activities #otalk
Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
Agreed! #Otalk
Laura @LauraCoffin_OT
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Social prescribing is about connecting people and communities. I think that as OTs we also understand the importance of belonging to health and wellbeing #OTalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@kayleighwainOT @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ In most cases, in the absence of an OT! My understanding is that most social prescribing is not done by OTs. Good that are principles are being used by others, helps spread the message about meaningful occupation & the impact this can have on wellbeing. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@RebeccaCrouch @gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ haha- I see an application of that with myself this past Sunday. I joined a sing-a-long with a group of TEDxers. It was a great sense of community even though we come from all over the globe as well as various backgrounds. #otalk

Sarah Bodell @sarah_bodell
@SusanGriffiths5 @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ This is interesting. So do you think OT could hand over leisure activities to social prescribers? #otalk

Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@sarah_bodell @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ I've not come across them doing that either... a different set of skills (I think @Pers_Care might have a framework for it!), but important to highlight the unique approach of OT in this context! #OTalk

Question 2 #OTalk @OTalk_ https://t.co/DjcO6Hbaep
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Yes I think we have always done this, like reflection and now it has a name #OTalk
Salford Social Prescribing Hub @SalfordSPx
@RebeccaCrouch @kayleighwainOT @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Very much the case - They come with all labels in their role names ; however in they do a good job of promoting those core values we hold very important as OT's. #OTalk
Sarah Bodell @sarah_bodell
@OTalk_ @AdamJacksonOT The social prescribers I have worked with are very goal oriented. What is often new to them are the concepts around occupational performance and analysis #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@sarah_bodell @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Well...I question why there is a need for social prescribers when we already have OTs that do this anyway 🤷🏽‍♀️ #otalk
JasminOT ⓥ @JasminLaffy
@gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ I agree! OTs are about getting people participating in the occupations they want and are meaningful. Even if you don't realise it social prescribing is part of this #otalk

@margaretOT360 #OTalk is it rebranding, redefining??
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ I sort of touched on that with a recent reply. My most recent experience was a TEDxers sing-a-long on Sunday. It was something I never did before. But, it was fun. We will do it again on Sunday. This time every participant will bring his/her favorite song. #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@RebeccaCrouch @BillWongOT @gscottOTS @AdamJacksonOT I agree and think as OTs we might be able to help here to adjust how to engage. Eg, my partner plays darts, this is good for phys/mental health. He is now using video call to take part in matches to help cope with lockdown. We just changed the how and where #otalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@sarah_bodell @SusanGriffiths5 @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ From experience in SP service (still a student OT, so can't speak as OT yet!), I think people w/ more complex needs could really benefit from OT support for leisure... if people w/ less complex needs could access leisure via LW, that could free up OT time for complexity? #OTalk
OT Sophie @OTSophie
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ We used to have "community connectors" we could refer in to, essentially these were support workers that seemed to function as social prescribers. #OTalk
Salford Social Prescribing Hub @SalfordSPx

Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Yes in the same way as we would to an OTA or activity co-ordiator if we had one #OTalk
ChrissiS-OT 💙💚 @ChrissisOt
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ I worked in a primary care service that were looking at hosting what sounded like a social prescribing clinic. GP/nurses would refer to these people who would look at local communities/activities that suited the patient. Didn't end up happening. I never hear 'OT' mentioned #Otalk
Sarah Bodell @sarah_bodell
@SusanGriffiths5 @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Do you feel they are the same thing? If so, would a purchaser not want the cheapest option? #otalk
Rebecca, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
@OTalk_ @sarah_bodell @AdamJacksonOT Also social prescribers may be working too a narrow offering (whatever the CCG has on offer). An occupational therapist, if resources allow, could be more creative & work on client needs as opposed to a list of restrictive activities. Many may not be relevant. #OTalk

Sarah Bodell @sarah_bodell
@SusanGriffiths5 @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ I agree, and also think complexity is key. I think our grounding in occupational science, occupational analysis and occupational performance is what enables us to work with people with complex needs. That why we cost more #teamwork #otalk
Kayleigh Wain @kayleighwainOT
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Before getting into OT , I was shortlisted for SP role. Feels like SPrescribers are seen as “ cheaper”, than employing an OT. Do feel SP allows opportunity for local communities to become more connected, and I think SP will inspire people to get involved in OT later #OTalk

@sarah_bodell @LauraCoffin_OT @AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ #OTalk does this return to the need for CCGs to fund effectively, & for GPs to recognise our role, refer to OTs rather than SocPres, & for SocPres to be a tool in our professional kit?

@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ #OTalk we assess the whole person and analyse the barriers preventing people doing what they want to do, SP are not trained to do this and this is where our unique skills come into play.

@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Gone from mental health OT to community OT to Social prescriber.. Perfect role to bring my skills together and do meaningful work. Very satisfying x. #OTalk
Chantelle Martin @chaniedavies
@AdamJacksonOT @OTalk_ Assessments, outcome measures, activity analysis on top of evidence base that is already there... Perhaps RCOT develop subsection to upskill link workers but have access to evidence and tools. Reflective peer supervision #OTalk

@sarah_bodell Sorry to miss #OTalk ! Looks like it was a great conversation. OTs needed more than ever as we help people cope with and then recover from the current crisis. Time to catch up @sarah_bodell !
