    Our 'Now for something completely different' article. We pick one article each term NOT related to that term's topic. We try to pick a more general article relevant across all Paediatric OT (and sometimes relevant across all OT practice).

Kids + Co.Lab OT ,

Candid, warm and informative!

This is the podcast I didn’t know I needed! As a fellow Peadiatric OT, I’m absolutely loving having Mim & Sarah review these articles and share their real world experience with applying the research into reality. Also love listening to the Ask Anu segment - because let’s be honest, the section of my brain for research terms & critiques is pretty dusty all these years later! Do yourself a favour and follow this podcast!

Grow Play Create OT ,

Informative, enlightening and easy to understand!

Sarah and Mim really help the listener understand and relate to the research evidence being presented in each episode. They make it so easy to take what is presented in research and apply to clinical practice to assist occupational therapists to ensure they are using up to date, evidence based practice. They have a lovely banter, which makes the podcast entertaining and engaging to listen to. Can’t wait to hear what other topics they will cover. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to incorporate exploring the research evidence into their clinical practice.
