COVID-19 disease has brought about unparalleled pressures on health and care services across the UK: services are having to respond in ways for which they may not feel equipped and for which practitioners may feel less familiar or prepared. Occupational therapists have been among the care professionals who have adopted new roles/ routines/ tasks in the workplace to support the cover effort during this crisis. The Elizabeth Casson Trust recognises how difficult this may have been and how professional support could be welcomed.
In response – and by way of thanks to occupational therapists – the Trust would like to invest in individuals and the profession by commissioning a programme of support. This support will help individuals process events, review experiences and make sense of the challenges that have been faced. It is intended that this support will both help individuals strengthen resilience to move forward and also to explore if there are potentially new practices and learnings that can be taken into future/ return to former practice post COVID-19
