@physiotalk #physiotalk working in a multi-disciplinary teamat INPUT in St Thomas's - alongside OTs, nurses and psychologists was one of the best learning environmenta I've worked in. We worked together dynamically and integrated to do our best for people that came to see us.
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@physiotalk Also did a lot of (non-complex) assessments with patients who needed both OT and PT which saved time, helped with continuity of contact and helped build rapport with patients 😊 #physiotalk
Teresa Cook @tcookot
@physiotalk I was involved in starting integrated working in our trust about 9 years ago, it started because we had limited staffing at the time and the OT team and physio mobility team realised how much we were duplicating what we were doing with patients #physiotalk
Catherine Bowdler @clbowdler
@physiotalk Lots of crossover working in the community, to the benefit of our patients and my own clinical skills. #physiotalk

@tcookot @physiotalk That’s very similar to how our integration started. We realised as we started to learn to work together how much more fluid and hollistic our assessments could be if we took advantage of each other’s expertise and where the roles blurred! #physiotalk
Jo Kitchen @J0Physio
@physiotalk Likewise our OT can assess functional activities including transfers and gait, check HEP and ask physio to visit if she can concerns. We do enough joint visits to learn to trust each other! #physiotalk

Heather Bryce @HeatherBryce4
@physiotalk I work at front door in acute receiving and A&E. The specialist physiotherapist and I both cross over with each others roles. Essential in a busy department to enable us to maximise caseload. The cross over role allows me to provide more holistic assessment #physiotalk
Sheena Wight @sheena_OT
@physiotalk I have seen the benefits of cross over roles in integrated teams. Can be challenging if staff feel threatened at all but benefits of reduced duplication and multiple ax for PT. #physiotalk
Jess Garvey @jessgarveyOT
@physiotalk In our service OT and PT work very closely, resulting in quite a lot crossover. My personal experience is more effective client driven care, strong communication lines and increased work efficiency. At times challenging but results in more holistic service delivery #physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
Next question coming up as a twitter poll! #physiotalk
chelsea-leanne @chelseadagger21
@physiotalk I’ve so far found that there’s much more cross over in acute/hospital settings than in community therapy where services are integrated but much less crossover in roles, but it also depends on the individuals within teams as to how much they wish to merge their skills #physiotalk
Mari @mariand84
@physiotalk Very positive! I have worked in team with OT in community service and at general hospital doing assessments. We complement each other in great ways and it is fun working in teams. #physiotalk
Rhona Burch @BurchRhona
@jessgarveyOT @physiotalk Definitely. Sometimes we have to take a step back and reaffirm those professional lines but the increase to efficiency, communication and effectiveness of intervention with some crossover seems to be well worth the challenges #physiotalk
Erica Moo @EricaMoo
@physiotalk I work in integrated team in A&E where we are signed off from generic based skills to allowed crossover working & avoid duplication of tasks. Previously lots of experience in acute medicine where some trusts actively encouraged crossover, others avoided at all costs #physiotalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@physiotalk Plus OT housing/work areas of practice perhaps #physiotalk
Samantha Graham @SammieRespPT
@physiotalk Theres a big place for joint/collaborative working within respiratory settings but I ultimately feel cross working roles wouldn't work within each professions scope #physiotalk
Teresa Cook @tcookot
@Laura_Does @physiotalk This is so important in our service too, talking to patients they don’t really mind whether they are seen by an OT, a physio or a support worker, as long as the person is competent and it is even better if it is only 1 person #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Q2 Do you welcome the expansion into blurred or cross over OT / PT roles #physiotalk
Jo Kitchen @J0Physio
@physiotalk ITU? Possibly as physios are mainly going respiratory but for rehab patients I imagine there is crossover #physiotalk
Mande Smit @mandeltjies
@physiotalk Working alongside OT’s makes service delivery and therapeutic approach more hollistic,effective,diverse and intersting. Even though many roles cross-over- the aims and objectives always differs.each role (OT/PT) should just stick firmly to their objectives. #physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
Whilst you are getting on with answering the poll Time for question three! #physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
@Babsyslapsy #physiotalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
What particular things were you being territorial about? #physiotalk
Jazmin Tyler @JazminT_Physio
@physiotalk As a student on placement on an acute stroke ward, although there was not true cross over roles I found OT and PT's working very closely to complete joint assessments and treatments was great! Not just for us as the professionals but from a patients perspective too! #physiotalk
Rhona Burch @BurchRhona
@physiotalk I would concur that areas where PT input is primarily/almost solely respiratory/chest PT in nature OTs may have less of a role there such as ITU/ICU but as these patients progress to other wards the goals become more functional & their input is vital #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk Surely joint working occurs everywhere that occupational therapists and physiotherapists co-exist? However, cross-boundary working might not. #physiotalk
Caroline Strathearn @CarolineStrath
@physiotalk Even in MH some of the best collaboration with physio I’ve been part of, is if/when exercises are prescribed they link to an occupation eg ironing/gardening etc giving it a purpose #PhysioTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Question 3 #physiotalk
Callan Roberts @CR_MCSP
@physiotalk Depending on area. I’ve worked in many trusts where cross over is the norm and in others where there are high levels of ‘job specific’ roles. There have been many battles between professions. #physiotalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@tcookot @physiotalk Definitely better to have just one (competent) staff member throughout if possible/appropriate 😊 #physiotalk
Stella Krain @krain_stella
@physiotalk Working generically in a community therapy team and also in ED / AMU has made us a strong team. We have increased skills, our assessments are more thorough and we share knowledge. However we also know when we need ask for an OT or PT specific detailed assessment. #physiotalk
Helen OTUK @Helen_OTUK
@physiotalk Better experience for the individuals we work with. #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk Better patient centred care! Helping people achieve their goals. Not worrying about duplication but focusing on the individual and what they want to achieve! #physiotalk
Scott Buxton @ScottBuxton_1
@physiotalk I do welcome expansion as long as it's like a Venn diagram where there is central commonality but wider expertise and skill specific to profession. #physiotalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
What do others think? #physiotalk
Heather Bryce @HeatherBryce4
@physiotalk I think its dependent on the expected scope. Like others that have mentioned respiratory/ITU where physiotherapists will be supporting respiratory needs this is obviously specific but the moving and handling/rehab scope could blur #physiotalk

@AprilJane84 #physiotalk
chelsea-leanne @chelseadagger21
@BurchRhona @physiotalk This sounds to be super common in teams which are in the early days of integrating, in my two years since qualifying I have only worked in integrated teams and can’t imagine the “old way” of working! The two professions compliment each other so well #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists occupy the same therapeutic ecosystem, but are trained very differently. Understanding that is an important first step. (Although I still don't understand all these models of practice and assessment within OT) #physiotalk

@physiotalk Increased efficiency capacity & reduced duplication. Pts are less frustrated from constant repetition of questions/answers where each role would’ve crossed over. Beneficial to staff development, competence & confidence in each other using pre agreed Ax/Rx parameters #physiotalk
Rhona Burch @BurchRhona
@HolleighLouise @physiotalk I think this is very common. It’s what both professions felt strongly at the start of our service integration but it’s the ‘norm’ now & to work in isolation without consideration of each others goals and roles with patients seems alien and less holistic now! #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
RT @_JoeMiddleton: Is lack of staff a driver? I'm sure we'd all like to say no, but... #physiotalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@HolleighLouise @physiotalk I saw a fair few 'territorial' reactions to the crossover initially too because it was felt the other professions wouldn't know how to complete an assessment the way they did. Until they discussed assessment necessities it was a bit confusing. #physiotalk
Claudia Salmon @yumteayum
@physiotalk Better communication within the team, clients, families and carers. Certainly less duplication therefore less time consuming. You respect each other’s role more as well #physiotalk
Erica Moo @EricaMoo

amanda deaves @ADeaves
@mandeltjies @physiotalk #physiotalk Whilst I agree with your first comments. The aims and objectives should be the patients / client / service users not the professionals to ensure that their needs are met.
Jess Garvey @jessgarveyOT
@physiotalk Benefits: less duplication, increased productivity, enhanced team work, improved caseload management, holistic care delivery, better understanding of each other roles. Drivers: more efficient service delivery, broadening skills sets and effective use of manpower #physiotalk
Samantha Graham @SammieRespPT
@physiotalk Previously working in a very role blurred team I felt I lost my professional identity, especially when I was fresh out of a uni that taught (very well) crossprofessionally. collaborative, efficient working is different to blurring of roles for me #physiotalk
Caroline Strathearn @CarolineStrath
@Laura_Does @physiotalk I think this could be an emerging area for physios. Where a focus is on wellness and encouraging restorative practices instead of compensatory eg when not to prescribe a stair lift or ramp and to encourage physical activity to prevent mobility loss where appropriate. #PhysioTalk
Heather Bryce @HeatherBryce4
@physiotalk Benefits: reduced duplication,holistic assessment,extension of skills/understanding of others roles. Drivers: reducing workforce/staff retention may be beneficial for practitioners to have extended skills. Therapeutic relationship with less contacts for patients #physiotalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
What do you mean by poor staffing? Inability to fill rules? Incompetent staff? Lack of funding? #PhysioTalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@EricaMoo @krain_stella So, what would necessitate a specialised assessment? Can you give examples? #physiotalk
Scott Buxton @ScottBuxton_1
@physiotalk Absolutely musing! I think the non negotiables would vary depending on clinical context. I think it's important to remember the significance of scope and role of competencies. #physiotalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does

Rhona Burch @BurchRhona
@HolleighLouise @ChloeDicksonOT @physiotalk We would likely say along the lines of “hello my name is Rhona and I’m one of the physiotherapists working on the rehab team for the ward, this is Kirsten @GauldKirsten, she’s one of the occupational therapists here. We/I was hoping we could...etc #physiotalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@JanetThomas47 @ChloeDicksonOT @physiotalk We recently changed uniform to matching uniforms and the only thing that identified us as OT or PT were the embroidery. Patients were not bothered, it was the doctors that had an issue as they had to look at us properly to identify if we were OT or PT 😂#physiotalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
In occupational therapy, occupations refer to the everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to life. Occupations include things people need to, want to and are expected to do. #PhysioTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@prideauxsarah @physiotalk What's an accute responder, if you don't mind me asking? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@Laura_Does @tcookot A good question! How 'specialist' can a specialist become before they are too specialist to be part of a blended / blurred / cross over role? #physiotalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future. It takes a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care. #PhysioTalk
Abbig @Abbig57069876
@physiotalk #physiotalk in these more pressured days of reduced training budgets does it give some opportunities for professional upskilling and cpd to work collaboratively?
Scott Buxton @ScottBuxton_1
@HolleighLouise @BurchRhona @ChloeDicksonOT @physiotalk I would always introduce myself as a physio and I would expect the same from an OT. I dislike the term therapist for this reason. Patients need to know what to expect from the professional seeing them. #physiotalk #otalk

@physiotalk @Laura_Does @tcookot I wonder if there is always some space for crossover- specialist hand therapists can be OT or PT or working together. Really complex Neuro rehab pts usually working towards functional goals benefit from joint Ax. SLT often manage a mix of OT & PT #physiotalk

Stella Krain @krain_stella
@HeatherBryce4 @physiotalk In our CHAT team we draw on the experience and knowledge that our OTs / PTs have gained from working in specific areas beforehand.

@physiotalk In my opinion many healthcare roles are becoming blurred not just OT/PT but advanced practitioner roles etc. I feel to meet the demands of the NHS and support our medical and nursing colleagues we must grow into these roles and be open to being more autonomous. #physiotalk

@tcookot @physiotalk With an understanding specialists will have training to the same standard as their staff? A clear line where cross-over should stop. No harm in specialists working at a non-specialist level occasionally (e.g. team leads going on wards every year to keep up skills?) #physiotalk
