Occupational Therapy in Prisons

Lisa Jamieson, Specialist Occupational Therapist, HMP Grampian Perspective

Occupational Therapy is an emerging profession within Scottish Prisons. HMP Grampian was the first permanent prison based Occupational Therapy Service in Scotland, delivering occupation focused assessment and interventions to address health, wellbeing and facilitate the desistance process. Lisa will give an overview of how an occupational perspective of health and positioning from a public health perspective can have added value with this population.

Occupational Therapy in Critical Care

Gillian Reeley,

Aberdeen Royal Infirmary became a Scottish major trauma centre in 2018. With this development we aimed to develop a valuable Occupational Therapy service within critical care with objectives to develop knowledge and skills in this area, develop an effective Occupational Therapy service while promoting the profession and improving patient outcomes.

During our presentation we will aim to convince Occupational Therapists that embarking on an AHP Careers Fellowship with NES is an amazing opportunity not to be missed. We will give our Top Ten Reasons to "give it a shot" and provide an outline of two projects currently being undertaken as part of the fellowship.

1. RCOT activities including:

- Research and Development Strategy,
