Occupational therapy, research and COVID-19. Looking forward to tonights #otalk with @easduncan @NikkiDanielsOT and everyone whos tweeting in
#OTalk @OTalk_
Good evening. Welcome to May's #Otalk Research. @NikkiDanielsOT on the account tonight. Our topic is"Managing your research during a pandemic" and our host is @easduncan

Occupational therapy pals: research during pandemic
Edward Duncan @easduncan
Hello everyone! Looking forward to the next hour. Will get started with the first question in a few minutes. Hope everyone is doing well #OTalk
Deb Duck @debbieduckie
@OTalk_ Me, I’m not researching so I’ll just sit and be fangirly over here #otalk

Question 1: What has changed in your research activities as a result of COVID-19? #Otalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
I'm a PhD student @Uni_of_Essex undertaking a participatory action project exploring inclusive and accessible ways of evaluating participation in physical activity. I was just about to start recruiting my steering group of co-researchers... #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@easduncan Shift to accelerated grant writing efforts via zoom call - and a shift in focus to covid related activity #otalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
Was due to complete a face-to-face Nominal Group Technique (NGT) workshop over the summer to get consensus on a vocational intervention we're developing. Looking at potential online options to do this now. Has been done before, but virtual NGTs still quite novel. #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
@easduncan The biggest change is that all research activity has had to stop #OTalk @easduncan

@OTalk_ Hello! 😊 #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@naomialgeo Cool - i wonder how the digital environment will impact the dynamics of the group / the power of dominant voices? #otalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
@OTBev @Uni_of_Essex Hi! What sort of groups of people will be in your steering group? Any scope to recruit virtually? #OTalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
Viewing it as a positive though - can also explore how virtual NGTs are perceived. I wonder as we are getting more in tune with this virtual world if online methods will gain more popularity and acceptability. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@preston_jenny @easduncan yup- I felt it on my end as a research team member. #otalk
Dr Nikki Daniels @NikkiDanielsOT
@naomialgeo I did online focus groups using zoom and published my learning as it was a big learning curve. I can share the article with you if it helps #otalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@preston_jenny @easduncan aww. disappointing. were you able to secure extensions from your funders? #otalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
@DrCConnell Exactly! I'd love to explore that further as a side piece to my study.... will let you all know!! #OTalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
@DrCConnell @naomialgeo Yes - this is something I am wondering too as I look into using digital methods for communicating and working with co-researchers #OTalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
@DrCConnell Interesting! You able to tell us more? Like @preston_jenny says - so much research has stopped.... and yet I am aware that a lot of COVID research is also taking place/being developed! This rapid change in focus is engaging, but also a bit exhausting! #OTalk
RuthC @ruthotlife
@OTalk_ Nothing as firefighting to get work done pre pandemic - additional OT support workers and full OT mgr posts may help. #Otalk

Still in the process of confirming this #OTalk. One study includes people with MND so delays could significantly impact on the original population #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@easduncan @preston_jenny definitely - the massive pace change to try and address key problems in tight funder deadlines is exhausting. Focus of funders is not currently a natural fit to my research interests/skills #otalk

RT @easduncan: Managing your research during a pandemic: Q1 - What has changed in your research activities as a result of COVID-19? #OTalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
@easduncan @Uni_of_Essex Yes this is what I am starting to explore now. I am going to be working with a group of disabled people (not taking an impairment-specific approach to recruitment). I am wary of how this will exclude some contributors but may also improve access for others #OTalk
Deb Duck @debbieduckie
@easduncan I have research activities! I’ve been more focused on tracking developments in research to support my decision making #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@preston_jenny oh wow - yes i see that. #otalk
Dr Nikki Daniels @NikkiDanielsOT
@naomialgeo Fab, I'll definitely share after tonight's chat! #otalk
OT Sophie @OTSophie
@easduncan I'm only in the early stage of research process but already thinking the way I collate the data will need to be different due to restrictions #OTalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
Q2 (we are already getting into this). What challenges have you faced as a result of COVID-19 and how (if you possible) have you overcome them? #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@OTalk_ I’m lurking! #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
This is the same in practice and in the new delivery of occupational therapy education - rapid evidence reviews to make sure we equip our students with the best skills to do this too #otalk
#Hellomynameis Sarah. 🚋 💙 🏳️‍🌈 😷 @SLawsonOT
@easduncan Am in the middle of interviewing OTs, face 2 face, virtual or by phone. I've plenty to be getting on with transcribing and analysing but new participants have stopped & I feel uneasy actively trying to recruit when many are front line workers whilst I'm 'safe' at home #otalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
Seems like recruitment is one challenging many are facing #Otalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
@DrCConnell @preston_jenny This can be a challenge. But COVID 19 and its sequela will be with us for a long time.... time now to look to the future and think what the research implications for your area could be? Also consider the transferability of your methodological skills #OTalk
OT Sophie @OTSophie
@easduncan Treading the delicate line of being front line staff whilst also not missing the opportunity to capture the learning from this! #OTalk
Anna Pettican @AnnaPettican
@easduncan As @DrCConnell said, priorities definitely shift... needing to be responsive to an ever changing situation #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
I am really missing the research component to my role as it has reminded me how much I value the different strands. Trying to use the time constructively to write up evaluations and plan for future opportunities @easduncan #OTalk

@OTalk_ Trying hard not to panic and spending some time thinking of possible plan B #otalk
adrienne cormican @adicormy
@SLawsonOT @easduncan I am the same, getting on with systematic review instead of interviewing therapists because I don't want to burden frontline workers and waiting until COVID settles somewhat #OTalk

Good advice! #Otalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@OTSophie @easduncan have you teamed up with any academics in your field? #otalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
Any plan Bs that others have had to make that they can share? #Otalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
Technology. I can navigate Twitter, I'm a Gen Y'er, but ask me to try a new tech platform, and I shy away. I've been asked to present on Zoom, MS Teams, etc, and now that I feel more comfortable w/ them, I'm starting to feel more competent at tackling other technologies. #OTalk
✨Annie OT Student✨ @AnnieSevern_OT
@easduncan Main challenge would be that I was meant to be going into Stroke Support groups and recruiting participants through them. Trying to use snowball sampling and contacting groups via email... but it's hard as understandably people are struggling and it isn't their priority #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@easduncan @preston_jenny Academic life - rejections and new doors.... #otalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
For me, the ethical quandary - should I really be continuing with this research when people's priorities and concerns are quite rightly elsewhere? But I also think I should give people a choice, whether they may value this activity and collaboration in a time of isolation #OTalk

Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@easduncan @naomialgeo can you say a bit about ethical implications of data collection using these platforms ? I think of recording, storing and the ownership rights of the recording by the platform #otalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
@scottdu63431151 Good to capture the challenges and opportunities that changes in data collection methods bring - there will be lots to learn from this (collectively) even if we do all feel like we are in the thick of it right now! #OTalk

Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@AnnieSevern_OT @easduncan I guess if the research has a specific time scale as well. #OTalk
Dr Nikki Daniels @NikkiDanielsOT
@OTalk_ I submitted my thesis the week before lockdown so my research was 'complete'. I'm finding the lack of structure to my day, homeschooling and husband at home, a major challenge in preparing for my viva. A minor issue, but a challenge none the less #otalk
OT Sophie @OTSophie
@DrCConnell @easduncan Fingers crossed 🤞 my only concern is whether I will be "allowed" to do it, as I'm the only senior in my team...waiting to hear soon! #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@easduncan @naomialgeo definitely come across the sneaky 'ownership' of platform enabled recording functions - initially i would think a minor ammendment? #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@pd2ot @easduncan Good luck with the viva #Otalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@ais_d @OTalk_ to do or read? #otalk For reading - this is a handy living map / summary https://t.co/WWeSSQZBjp
Aisling Durkin @ais_d
@easduncan Having to react to changing circumstances very quickly and using anecdotal evidence rather then our usual hierarchy of evidence whilst also understanding that there are similarities with other presentations and understanding that too i.e PICS #otalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
@DrCConnell @easduncan I was also considering things like the sensitivity of the subject matter. In cases where a participant could get upset during the discussion. Typically, we would remind them they can cease at any time, which they could of course online, but it's navigating the after piece #OTalk
Anna Pettican @AnnaPettican
@pd2ot @easduncan Congratulations on submitting 🥳 that might be a good thing in ur viva - an opportunity to talk about how ur research applies to practice and will have impact (providing resarch topic and practice area are related)? #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@NikkiDanielsOT @OTalk_ the impact on us as researchers and new challenges in our own lives and ways of coping / doing - not to be underestimated #otalk

@easduncan Also trying to share my new knowledge with the team along with trying not to overwhelm them with it (driven by my anxiety about the situation!) #otalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
@DrCConnell @easduncan There's a lot to be said for that quick check-in face to face with someone, to check they're ok, pause any recording, and have a few moments for as long as they need, if they wish to continue. #OTalk

Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@scottdu63431151 @AnnieSevern_OT @easduncan Yeah people’s minds are elsewhere #OTalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
@DrCConnell @easduncan I suppose if someone wished to cease involvement during the data collection, they can mention it to you, you have that moment for 'check-in' with them, and you can gauge that they're ok. Online, they could just 'disappear'. #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@naomialgeo @easduncan recording can be paused on line on some platforms? But perhaps a greater challenge in attunement between researcher / participant #otalk
Dr Nikki Daniels @NikkiDanielsOT
@DrCConnell @easduncan @naomialgeo I had an article published. I'll pop the link up after the chat #otalk
Lelanie 🇪🇺 @LelanieBrewer
I'm trying to meet a deadline and the only way I am managing is by getting up several hours before anyone else #OTalk
Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
@naomialgeo @easduncan oh i see - yes thats true - it would be a very clear withdrawal of consent and less pressure experienced to continue? #otalk
Beverley Goodman @OTBev
@naomialgeo @DrCConnell @easduncan I think there are a few issues to consider with these platforms and how they change the dynamic. Judging cues, dealing with being able to see your own face (!) and how this affects your communication; whether you feel comfortable with sharing your living space on screen #OTalk
Edward Duncan @easduncan
Loving this discussion #OTalk Q3: What areas should occupational therapists be leading or collaborating in as a consequence of COVID-19? And looking forward what are the research opportunities for occupational therapy?

@easduncan @NikkiDanielsOT @OTalk_ My husband and I are working am/pm shifts to allow for protected (i.e. child free!) time for meeting calls/interviews - so we’re not interrupted and children also get uninterrupted time with one of us to do things. Still a stressful juggle tho! #OTalk

Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
The opportunities are endless #OTalk as we have so much to learn about the disease; the impact; our ability as a profession to respond; rehabilitation demands/interventions/outcomes, to name but a few @easduncan
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@easduncan Online communities and online services are really useful for many service users even despite COVID-19 so this is a great opportunity to explore the potentials of occupational therapy input online and the impact. #OTalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
I've been involved in researching the role of OT in ICU in the UK, & I would love for the evidence base to be developed even more. Such a promising role w/ strong emerging evidence to back it up. This is a time to showcase our expertise in physical/non-physical morbidity #OTalk

Dr Catriona Connell @DrCConnell
or indeed more threatening presences in the home #otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
There is also a huge area of interest around the enhanced ability to facilitate discharge currently despite significantly compromised resources. What can we learn from this re discharge planning and onward referral when many services are currently cancelled #OTalk @easduncan

@OTalk_ We need to own our unique& holistic identity so we are the first profession rather than add on profession people think of - holistic rehabilitation - this condition has huge long term implications and issues will have big impact due unprecidented situation & mh issues #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
We are in to the last 10 minutes of tonight's busy chat! Time for one more question from our host #Otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Or is it just that people are not coming to the hospital front door at all, rightly or wrongly (still need to understand the true implications) depending on needs 🤔 #OTalk

@easduncan I think it’ll be important to explore and capture if/how this time makes some research more accessible and inclusive for those who take part #OTalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Definitely worthy of exploration #OTalk
Anna Pettican @AnnaPettican
@easduncan Due to things/conventional ways of doing having to be rethought and reformed I mean #OTalk
Naomi Algeo @naomialgeo
I'd certainly be interested in an⬆️in Studies Within A Trial (SWATs) to explore acceptability of online methods w/ certain groups, or the impact on recruitment - does it ⬆️ recruitment in those living in less accessible areas compared to face-to-face? So many Qs to answer #OTalk

Aisling Durkin @ais_d
@easduncan @AnnaPettican Also (perhaps on the flipside!) is doing and not waiting to be 100% sure. We definitely have needed to react to changing situations and increasing knowledge. #otalk
Deb Duck @debbieduckie
@easduncan @OTalk_ @AnnaPettican It’s still a bit elitist. Like to understand it or be able to use it, needs intelligence not common. I’ve been told ‘I’m not that sort of OT’. It’s not accessible enough. I can’t get hold of papers easily. #OTalk
RuthC @ruthotlife
@easduncan What do people know about OT & what do they not?Raising our evidence based profile 2 promote our profession is critical. The higher our profile the more people will seek our input.We will always do good work-competing with nursing/physio evidence & psych b7 starter job #OTalk
