Event description

Description

The theme of the 9th annual RCOT Student Occupational Therapy Conference hosted by the University of Huddersfield is 'Occupation Reimagined'. We will be considering the evolution of occupations, including the changing occupations that individuals may go through within a lifetime alongside how Occupational Therapy changes to meet this by developing innovative and varied interventions whilst remaining focused on the value that occupation has and its impact on health and wellbeing. A clear focus on occupation is the unique value of Occupational Therapy and therefore occupation being the focus of the conference will allow delegates to explore and consolidate their grounding in occupation, for their learning and future practice. Delegates will learn about innovations, changes and opportunities in practice as well as providing delegates with the opportunity to “reimagine” occupation and Occupational Therapy, with the potential of our profession emerging through this theme.

  • We have the honour of welcoming Dr Edward Duncan as our opening key note speaker. Dr Duncan is an Associate Professor at the University of Stirling and is well known by practitioners and students alike for his long career in Occupational Therapy and his writing and editing of a range of books that students know and love including Foundations for Practice in Occupational Therapy and Skills for Practice in Occupational Therapy.
  • There are various occupation rooms consisting of:
  • Technology and innovation
  • Creative therapies
  • New and changing occupations
  • Sensory occupations
  • Taboo occupations

There is a variety of innovative and interactive sessions including but not limited to:

  • Pets as therapy
  • Virtual reality in stroke
  • Occupational Therapy with Veterans
  • Occupational Therapy and sexual concerns.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

**Speakers and sessions may be subject to change**
