RCOT Specialist Section for Oncology and Palliative Care are hosting a FREE of charge 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?

You MUST be a MEMBER of RCOT to attend these sessions, but it is not necessary to be a member of the specialist section for Oncology and Palliative Care. You can book your place by booking Eventbite

– Please note spaces are limited.

Please note that feedback from the session will be anonymised and kept for analysis for use by the RCOT Specialist Section Oncology and Palliative Care in line with their Ethics and R&D policy.
