Advanced Occupational Therapy Practice
Our occupational therapists are always looking for the latest evidence for assessment and interventions and use weekly in-service training to ensure their practice is always evolving.
Specific areas for development within the Occupational Therapy service are:
- Using digital resources to enhance occupational therapy, including the development of apps that children and young people can use to help them manage long term conditions
- Reviewing the rehabilitation offered to neurological patients and taking best practice from Australia and Canada to inform our services
- Investigating new ways of working within inpatient mental health services to increase occupational therapy presence on the wards
