Description

RCOT Specialist Section Oncology and Palliative Care Engagement Session

Palliative Rehabilitation

Wednesday, 13th Dec 2017, 15:00-17:00

RCOT Specialist Section for Oncology and Palliative Care are hosting an engagement session to explore the roles of specialist and generalist occupational therapists when working with palliative patients.

This session is open to occupational therapists working within specialist palliative or oncology services, as well as those who are working with generic settings.

In these sessions, we will explore:

  • What is palliative care and palliative rehabilitation?
  • What political and national drivers are there, that are influencing palliative care and rehabilitation?
  • Whose responsibility is palliative care / occupational palliative rehabilitation?
  • What skills do Occupational Therapists have, to meet the needs of these patient groups?
  • When (if at all) would Occupational Therapists refer on to a specialist Occupational Therapist in Palliative Care?
  • What training have Occupational Therapists had in palliative care and complex symptom management?

This event is open to RCOT members only, free of charge. OPC membership is not required to attend this event (but we very much encourage you to join up!)

There is a park-and-ride scheme at Silk Mills, which is a 1.1km walk down Silk Mills Road, but there are no bus stops at the hospice. There may be some parking at the hospice or on local roads for people who are unable to walk 1.1km.

[Anonymised data collected from discussions will be analysed and used by the OPC Specialist Section in line with RCOT R&D ethics procedures. Attendees can opt out if they do not wish their data to be used.]
