Promote OT: Marketing Our Distinct Value

Mandy Chamberlain MOTR/L Education & Tips for Independent Living, Podcasts Leave a Comment

What do we need to do to promote occupational therapy? Or do we even have to?

How do we define occupational therapy and what we "do" for our patients? Or is this even a priority?

I know this is a common problem with occupational therapy practitioners, as we are always trying to explain what occupational therapy is and how we show our distinct value in the world of healthcare.

Brock Cook OT, the host of the occupational therapy podcast Occupied, and I dive into these questions and hash out how OT's distinct value is communicated in healthcare, with our patients, coworkers and communities.

Help get the word out that occupational therapy is changing lives!

  1. In explaining what we do, it doesn't have to be concise, it needs to be understood.
  2. It's our job to market, promote and show our distinct value as a profession (no one else it going to do it for us)!
  3. Occupation is at the core of our profession, use our language to communicate what we do for the health of our patients.

Bonus takeaway: Australians DO NOT eat shrimp (they're prawns! 🙂
