Day 40… (WORLD OT DAY 2012)

WFOT WTOD Facebook Cover Black

40 days and 40 nights have past and they finish on World OT day 2012, what a great coincidence! 

I have celebrated the special day in my profession by attending a seminar as part of an OT weekend. I  had a great time today, learning about making splints, MENTe head band, deep brain simulation and OT in oncology.

Another way of celebrating was to write this poem:

Occupational Therapy…

Coming together across all nationalities…

Celebrating our profession and multi disciplinary identity…

Undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals…

Participating in OT promotion and CPD…

Altogether we collaborate…

Talking, thinking, telling…

Inter-professional teams and relationships…

Occupationally focused & client-centred across the lifespan for each and every service  user we meet…

Now we look to the future…

And all we can achieve…

Long live Occupational Therapy!

I hope you enjoy! I would like to wish every OT out there, every OT student, everybody thinking about a career in OT and most importantly every service user that has ever had an OT, every service user that will have an OT in the future a very special World OT day! I would also like to thank everybody that has made my OT training such an amazing experience, lecturers, peers, educators, technicians, MDT teams I have been apart of and again most importantly service users. For without you, I would not be able to make my day everyday!

A huge thank you to Linda Harrison (@dailyskills on twitter) for including me in the ‘Blog carnival today,’ I am very grateful. Please see Linda’s post on exploring balance, she includes various OT blogs from across the globe: http://www.lindasdailylivingskills.com/2012/10/blog-carnival-celebrating-world-ot-day.html.

NOTE TO FAMILY: This journey would not have been possible without your support! Thank you.
