@Keirwales And should form part of our considerations and clinical reasoning in assessments and interventions #OTalk. To ignore is to have a blind spot and not see something important and potentially contribute to the equivalent of a crash from pulling out at the wrong moment.

@pixiegirle @Keirwales I think a huge factor is the environment that you are practicing in. Stigma isn’t as big an issue in HSS, it’s there ... but the pts aren’t necessarily exposed to it. It’s more apparent as pts progress through their care pathway. #OTalk

@Keirwales When I was training (not sure if it’s same now),we wernt taught 2 critically evaluate policy-it was policy & we had to work to it. Without this critique in our training we just accept policy is neutral & must be accepted despite the stigma / discrimination inherent in it #otalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@Keirwales Probably not, but always good to be prompted to think more deeply about how practice can be improved. I think this is one of the big benefits of things like these #OTalk to provoke thinking, reflection and hopefully contribute to positive practice applications.

@Keirwales I think because it takes more "big picture" action, like instead of e.g. installing a ramp (relatively straightforward) you need to convince people to change their perceptions which can be really deeply ingrained #OTalk

@Keirwales Often limiting. Can ignite a fighting spirit but more often contributes to the challenges to be overcome. #OTalk
Dr Carolynne White OT @Carolynne_OT
@Keirwales As an example, weight stigma is socially produced by the way that certain bodies are idealised in our society, while larger bodies are disparaged in the media, and medicalised by health professionals and systems. Weight stigma is normalised, making it hard to challenge. #OTalk
Jo Collier @MassDecoration
@OT_KateT @Keirwales The lack of joined up care and collaboration between services is an issue which perhaps affects marginalised groups more than others. Before tonight I hadn't considered its potental relationship with stigma #Otalk

@Keirwales Yep, and I think that the reason that those people were (and many people, sadly, still are) sent so far away from home comes back around to stigma. Society somehow feels that it is OK to treat some groups of people like that. That is why challenging stigma is so vital #OTalk

@Tori_Doll_ @Ruth_Hawley @Keirwales This is especially true for weight stigma where people with larger bodies are reprimanded for not exercising enough, but when they do, they face barriers in restricted clothing sizes and often face judgement and mocking, which is a deterrent to being active in public. #OTalk

@Keirwales @Daisysorbet1 @colourful_ot Back to language being so important. In my opinion, again others are available, “disorder” has far too many negative associations, #stigma, is judgmental and inaccurate. Individuals have responses and experiences, not disorders. #OTalk

@Ruth_Hawley @Keirwales You're welcome. Language's important. Correct Dx also extremely important. Reason I was deemed "Tx resistant schizoaffective disorder bipolar type" was bc Drs misdiagnosed #HepaticEncephalopathy. OT can act as #PTsafety advocate by noting & reporting Dx/Bx inconsistencies #Otalk

Gordon Heath @GordonHeath3
Can anyone tell me if an OT has to be SI trained to diagnose SPD? Or is carrying out an assessment and identified significant sensory difficulties enough? #OTalk @RCOT_IP
Alice Hortop @LaughingOT
@Keirwales And alcohol and drug use are usually a symptom in my experience of a deeper need. #OTalk Apparently alcohol dependency is more demonised that drug use by society, I've witnessed that. X
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@Keirwales Missed this one in the business of last nights #OTalk and is good question. Hard to answer well within challenges of twitter but I’ll give it a go in the thread below.
Alice Hortop @LaughingOT
@Keirwales Further even discussing your own or supporting someone through distress or alcohol dependency makes some people feel uncomfortable. Noone would bat an eyelid talking about their broken arm but people squirm when depression, alcohol use etc is raised like its contagious. X #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@Keirwales At the time, when I challenged it and questioned it, it was described to me as differentiating between "serious mental illness” psychoses classification where there is an “illness” and the neuroses classification without an “illness” but in response to life events. #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@Keirwales In my opinion, this has potential to contribute to #stigma and offence in multiple ways. Both from being told there is or isn’t an “illness” component dependent on your beliefs re causation for mental health difficulties and by labelling some as serious and others less so. #OTalk
Alice Hortop @LaughingOT
@BillWongOT Or even sharing their experiences to help others. #OTalk or even just talking openly about their lives. Or even just explaining why they do things differently so people embrace diversity. X
Alice Hortop @LaughingOT
@Ruth_Hawley @Keirwales #OTalk it is a core part of our role. We need to stop talking in third person but engage our diversity and our experiences to create change. I've been sharing my depression and stigmatisatin through involuntary childlessness, it's been uncomfortable but I feel necessary to lead x
Alice Hortop @LaughingOT
@Ruth_Hawley @Keirwales #OTalk My worst experiences so far have been through the #adoptionprocess It's been the most #dehumanising, subjective & judgemental experience of my life. Lots of labelling, assumptions, judgements, violation of #gdpr rights, lack of empathy and care. #lifechanging #learning
Nuwan Dissanayaka @nuwandiss
Happens in hospitals too. How do we get past these artificial distinctions? “No evidence of mental illness” is a poor excuse. Equally ridiculous and judgemental approach to substance use in mental health services in my opinion
