RCOT Conference 2019

It has been very important to me to listen to the different talks and seeing the speakers, including the Care Minister and the chief of the AHP officer at NHS England. I found particularly catching the debate about the importance of research, which in my opinion is fundamental to our practice based on evidences. Inspiring and very well thought was the input given with the Elisabeth Casson memorial lecture, about the contemporary UK’s challenges. Also smart were some other observations regard taking charge of our tasks and stay focused on personalised care: discuss about renewal of the driving licence with patients affected with certain illness (i.e. depression); how to help clients to take informed decisions concerning their health, meet personal needs and encourage positive risk taking. It was great to listen to the experience of a service-user after a brain injury, talking about hidden disability and how the OT helped him to “run differently”. I had a chance in the afternoon to listen to the RCOT talk about the “Learning and Developmental framework for OTs, new or returning to social care”, which was launched only a couple of weeks ago and I would like now to explore to support my Return to Practice programme. All conference was generally an inspiration to work harder and better for what we believe, aiming to continuously achieve the most holistic and person-centred care delivery in our developing society.
