Advanced Occupational Therapy Practice

Illustration of a young girl 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
