@DrGillianWard It has to start from each of us. If we ourselves are not excited, how can we get others excited about research? #otalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
Oooooh straight in with a big question! 😆 1) demystify what “doing research” can look like 2) taking as many people with you as possible 3) everyone doing their own manageable bit (and that will look different for each of us) and 4) sharing experiences and outcomes #OTalk

Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
So how do we create informality?#Otalk

@LelanieBrewer absolutely! I often think it feels like ‘extra’ work on top of my day job.. maybe we need to have more flexible/availability to study time to work on research #otalk

Does everyone have that confidence though #OTalk

support on the journey is really important #otalk
Dr Gemma Wells @GemmaOTPhD
@DrGillianWard I think that this links to appreciating the unique and valuable role that we play both in practice and academia #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Interesting idea - how do we promote this ? #OTalk
Dr Stephanie Tempest @SetG75
I found the time pressure for research activity in the academic setting was different to the clinical setting but was still very much there - esp if you have a large ‘admin’ role eg Programme Lead, together with teaching commitments #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DrGillianWard well- perhaps setting up opportunities for researchers to share their messages? Like nominating them to be featured on news? #otalk
Alison @OTMcCracken
@kerri_schOT @LelanieBrewer Agreed - research does need time - particularly if we're aiming for good quality studies #OTalk . What have people's experiences been of trying to find this time?

Dr Gemma Wells @GemmaOTPhD
@preston_jenny I agree, and part of that support needs to be reflecting back what individuals can bring to the research table, regardless of their previous level of experience #OTalk
Helen Atkin @HelenAtkin2
@YmchwilStroc @GemmaOTPhD @DrGillianWard There is also something about considering how we communicate something of the excitement of doing research rather than it being seen as something that is only done by ‘others’#OTalk
Alison @OTMcCracken
@lezeki @JoWatson22 Buddy / Mentor system for researchers and practitioners would really help at all levels I think #OTalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT

#OTalk Research is a great place to start! My personal networks are formed from within and outwith the profession. I have quite deliberately sought out research peers and mentors that I feel comfortable with, who will challenge me and encourage me.
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
Being part of a community helps - at @NclUni_IHS I’m lucky to be in 2 group meetings that I get a lot of feedback from. My supervisor @niinamk encourages us to attend and I’ve met great people who facilitate a culture of research as a result #OTalk

Can we learn from NHS research capacity development? https://t.co/FvC3T0rTic #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@JoWatson22 sometimes it's not just face to face, though. Like the autism book I just worked in, checking in and meeting up with potential collaborators from time to time is also important, if they are not close by. #otalk

@kerri_schOT @OTMcCracken And sometimes it’s important to acknowledge that and do more another time #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@andy83g @OTalk_ I would go broader. If your research can have bigger impact, definitely want to invest going to WFOT and find potential collaborators across the globe. #otalk

Jo Watson @JoWatson22
so maybe not just a network for those engaged or wishing to engage more with research, but also for service managers to help them find ways to support their staff? #OTalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
Question 3.Thinking on a national level, what would a vibrant research community look like and feel like to be part of? #OTalk
Lelanie @LelanieBrewer
But the protected needs to be acknowledged by everyone and sometimes you might have responsibilities that need actioning on your research day #OTalk
Dr Gemma Wells @GemmaOTPhD
@DrGillianWard What about sharing the load amongst a group, perhaps allocating different roles in the research process to different people? May not seem quite so overwhelming then #OTalk
OTalk @OTalk_
Time is a hard one, it comes up a lot in coaching as a reason for not doing things. Perhaps time isn’t the issue it’s maybe what we prioritise, there never will be enough time #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@YmchwilStroc @LelanieBrewer It depends, some clinical jobs will be difficult to do so. Like mine... many therapists already have to deal with weekly reports in my setting. They have little to no time for research. Any research time will probably be on the side. #otalk
Gillian Ward @DrGillianWard
That's a great idea! #Otalk
Dr Jenny Preston MBE @preston_jenny
Is there something here about speculating to accumulate, we are all busy clinically but are we doing the right things in the right way to gain maximum benefit for our clients #Otalk
Kerri Schubert @kerri_schOT

@kerri_schOT @HelenAtkin2 @LelanieBrewer Who stops you from using your time for research related activities?! Do we just go ahead until someone gives us a good reason not to? Will they be upset if you win an award for your Trust for your research? #OTalk

@DrGillianWard I work mostly with medics/ medical academics and they are increasingly having research sessions incorporated into their contracts so I guess that would be our job descriptions #OTalk

@OTalk_ prioritisation is key... and I always seem to prioritise other things over my research! #otalk

@JoWatson22 Absolutely, I think this is so important! My recent work illustrates how important management support and leadership is in creating a culture of improvement #OTalk

@preston_jenny It is very dependent on individuals but I’d agree a top down approach would help clinicians give themselves permission to engage in research activities. Also need to trail-blaze from the bottom up and push boundaries! #OTalk #leadership

@lezeki @OTalk_ @theRCOT Definitely! I moved to the Peak District/Sheffield area three days ago so keen to meet any #OccupationalTherapy researchers or #PhD students in the area. #OTalk #networking

@DrGillianWard There are lots of passionate OTs interested and motivated but feeling they lack the skills or time for research. Also can feel isolating. Building networks and offering opportunities for skills development is vital. Lots of great stuff already happening but we can do more #OTalk
