NHS Tayside celebrated the vital work carried out by occupational therapists as part of the annual Occupational Therapy Week (5-12 November).
Occupational Therapists (OTs) and members of the multi disciplinary team created a video which was shared on NHS Tayside’s social media sites. The video, which can be viewed below, highlights the value of OTs and how their work benefits patients across NHS Tayside.
The team also held an information stand on the main concourse in Ninewells which attracted lots of interest from staff, visitors and patients, in particular high school students who were thinking of becoming OTs and medical students looking for advice about the OT role in different areas. Current OT students also spoke to the team about their roles.
Members of the public were given advice about equipment, pain and fatigue management. The information stand helped promote the profession and value of OT in everyday life.
