Members news, /

A series of OT-Europe Workshops have been held in the run-up to the 2nd COTEC-ENOTHE Congress being held online between the 15-18 September 2021. The workshops are free of charge to delegates who have registered to the Congress. The themes of the workshops are very relevant to the overarching theme of the Congress – resilience – and reflect the contemporary ‘state of the art’ expertise in Occupational Therapy research, education and practice. The workshop themes are:

Interdisciplinary delirium – aiming to raise awareness about delirium among OTs and to build a basis for an OT network dealing with delirium

E-health – while e-health provides health care and rehabilitation contexts with new opportunities, alternatives and potentials for the benefit of occupational therapy and the society at large, there are also a number of critical issues to be considered, such as ethics, barries, e-health literacy, professional requirements and competencies

Health literacy – investing in health literacy has proven to strenghten individuals’ and organisations’ resilience. In this workshop OTs will discuss how occupational therapy contributes to health literacy on different levels.

School-based Occupational Therapy – discussions about the different ways occupational therapists are developing school-based interventions and about the curriculum guidelines that have been developed for OT students.

Displaced persons – understanding how to be responsive to the challenges of forced migration is critical for humanity. There is a growing interest for the potential for occupational therapists to engage in work with displaced persons.

If the themes of the workshops raise questions or ideas of potential collaboration, please contact
