Amongst the chaos surrounding COVID-19, this webinar has been developed to promptly address issues confronting OTs in the field.  Ever wondered why you give to others before giving to yourself?  Ever struggled to care for yourself? Would you like to know how to manage competing priorities in a structured way? Would you like to be armed with skills that enable you to support your clients, colleagues and the community whilst role modelling our unique capacity as OTs?  If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this webinar holds value for you.  

SUITABLE FOR

Suitable for all clinicians

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Understand the psychology of self-care specific to OTs and Health Professionals;

2. Develop a broad understanding of your risk exposure and impacts on capability as a practicing OT; 

3. Develop your own unique process for balancing competing priorities;

4. Understand our unique value proposition and specialised skill set to support our clients, colleagues and community at large. 

This webainr will support clinicians to consider how they will: 

  • Role model self-care: to identify personal/professional needs; to prioritise them; and model their resultant enhanced capacity to their clients.
  • Tailor their OT practice: reminding therapists of their inherent core values and expertise in occupation, adapting to, modifying and remaining functional as a result.  
  • Enable clients to feel empowered: adjustment and adaptation are key tools we all need during the current pandemic. OTs will be reminded of their expertise in this area, thus aiding their clients with the adjustment/adaptation they need to sustain occupational roles.
