A DATE FOR THE DIARY
Keeping up with the occupational therapy (OT) profession can often be a job unto itself. In the ever-evolving OT arena there are always new regulations, new pieces of equipment and new ideas to remain abreast of, which is important for occupational therapists looking to operate at the cutting-edge of OT.
While some of this might fall within the realms of routine CPD education, sometimes it is necessary to go beyond this in order to get the latest updates. The benefits of getting the whole team involved in such a search for knowledge and inspiration are clear, so events that welcome every member of the OT team are ideal. With this in mind, make sure you save the dates in your diary for The Occupational Therapy Show 2017: 22 & 23 Nov 2017!
The Occupational Therapy Show 2016 was another fantastic event packed with free, accredited first-class education, motivational lectures, hands-on sessions and world
renowned speakers. With two-day lecture programmes tailored to meet the needs of each member of the OT team, there were plenty opportunities to learn new skills, develop existing knowledge and network with some of the brightest and most forward-thinking minds in the profession.
Aside from the main lecture theatres, other key features that will return once again for 2017 include the Showcase and Innovation Theatres, each providing an update on techniques, materials and products in the various disciplines. The popular Posture & Wheelchair Essentials Programme will also make an appearance, covering all
you need to know about these areas.
Yet another benefit of the event will be the extensive trade exhibition, bringing together all the leading OT centred suppliers and manufacturers. Whether you’re looking to source new equipment, update your software programmes or try new services, information and demonstrations will be available on an array of cutting edge products.
Following its increasing success over the past few years The Occupational Therapy Show is delighted with the continued support of various organisations, associations and societies.
Many are set to return for 2017, so you can meet members and representatives in person and find out more about the benefits of membership and how each association can help you advance in your career.
In addition to all this, with thousands of professionals, trade companies and international speakers in attendance including, Dr Michael Iwama, Dr Jenny Preston MBE, Dr Joanne Fillingham, Michael Mandelstam and Gillian Leng.
The Occupational Therapy Show is the ideal platform from which to build and strengthen networks. You can meet old friends and new over coffee, discuss technologies with the experts who helped develop them and gain fresh ideas from those at the forefront of OT. What’s more, collocated with Therapy Expo, you can also catch up with the therapy colleagues you work with, while discovering new services that might be available to you.
All in all, The Occupational Therapy Show 2017 promises to be the OT event of the year once again. Completely free to attend for all the team, make sure you save the dates in your diary!
