Dyslexia and Occupational Therapy – This chat will be hosted by Sharon Hardman @SharonOTUClan   During my Occupational Therapy (OT) pre-registration training I was diagnosed with specific learning difficulties, more commonly known as dyslexia, 3 days before the UK went into the first Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020.  This was a huge shock to me as I had already achieved 10 GCSEs, 3 A levels, BA (Hons) degree and Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and no one has noticed my dyslexia.   According to Dyslexia Association (2022) “dyslexia is a lifelong condition, which ha ..read more

This week’s chat will be hosted by @SamOTantha.  I personally prefer not to set resolutions, mostly because I try and quickly fail to stick to them. But I do like to reflect on my previous year and think about what I want to achieve in the upcoming year. In 2022, I discovered that the research process is not as simple as I had originally thought. For every answer I thought I had found, the more questions I unearthed. For every output I dreamily planned, I quickly realized there were many barriers and steps that are required before you can even begin a new research project. 2022, was about ..read more

This week Jay Webster will be hosting this is what they have to say to get you thinking about this weeks topic. Patient and public involvement (PPI) is a term that has been used a lot when talking about working with people but I’m trying to use it less to reduce acronym use and confusion, after all, we’re not talking about insurance or medicine for heartburn.  For this #OTalk, however, due to character restrictions, PPI can be used freely when talking about public involvement Public involvement means working with people, often called public contributors, rather than doing things to, for ..read more

How do you find out if your idea is unique or even if it’s viable? The answer to that question, is, market research.  Market research is used to gather data on the market. Simply put, market research gives you the information you need to make good busin ..read more
