Have your say in the future of Occupational Therapy

The Royal College of Occupational Therapists is inviting people with experience of accessing occupational therapy services, their families and carers and health and social care professionals to help identify the top 10 research priorities for occupational therapy in the UK

We know that people with MND may face difficulties carrying out everyday tasks and that occupational therapy can help. So, we want to ensure we are shaping the future of occupational therapy- which is why the Association is a partner in this exciting project.

In the first stage of the project a survey went out to people who use occupational therapy services, carers and occupational therapists asking them to respond by posing questions they have for research. Since the survey closed in November a long list of questions has been written.

You now have a chance to identify the questions you think are most important by completing a second survey. The results of this survey will create questions that go to the final prioritisation stage. To take part in it please click here.

Later in 2020 the list of highest ranked questions from the second survey will be taken to a workshop. Workshop participants will be individuals who have accessed occupational therapy services, carers and occupational therapists. Together they will agree which are the ‘Top 10’ research priorities in occupational therapy. If you would like to express your interest in participating in the workshop please contact Ruth via the contact details below.
