Course Title: Understanding Professional Imperatives

Wendy Walsh, Ph.D., OTR/L & Nicole Roberts, OTD, OTR/L

Course Description 

One facet of OT that many practitioners fail to actively explore throughout their long career is engagement in the maintenance/expansion of professional scope of practice.  Recent legislation, emerging practice areas, and social media influence all offer opportunities for clinicians and academics to support initiatives that keep the profession current and progressive. Advocacy as a professional imperative is a skill that can take many forms and this session will explore a few examples where clinician input and attention can make a big difference reinforcing the value of OT at local, state, and national levels.
