    OT vs. No Therapy— which is better?

    There is a lot to learn from this article, which looks at OT vs no therapy for mild to moderate Parkinson's Disease, and I think it might be one of the most important articles for us to take in this year.

    OT and the CO-OP Approach

    I believe that the future of occupational therapy will involve more intentional incorporation of learning strategies into our treatment sessions— that's why I think it is very important that we all pay attention to the evidence that is piling up behind the CO-OP Approach.

Thanks, Sarah...

From Mind-Bending to Digestible

Holy buckets. For the first time in my career (thanks to Sarah’s OT Potential Club), I’m regularly reading about and implementing and actually (more so) understanding high level research. This helps keep OTs aware for the future and inspired/challenged for the present. I’ve loved the online chat option too and have already gotten ideas to help me in my home health practice.

Synthesizing Evidence Based Practice

Being an Acute Care therapist, time and urgency is at the forefront. We need to know the most up-to-date research faster and be more prepared to speak to what we know and learn. Sarah breaks this easy task up in just less than 15 minutes. Great resource if you’re needing to incorporate more evidenced based practice in your OT care.
