@kirstyes Evening all #OTalk thanks for stepping in @gilliancrossley (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:04:24 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley I actually work in private practice, but OTs in the public health is important for health promotion. #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:05:18 +0100)
@kirstyes Personally I just think it’s about time public health was viewed as more than diet and exercise. #OTalk yes they’re important but not all(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:06:12 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Th00ha #otalk are there and key public health issues that OT can help with?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:06:49 +0100)
@gilliancrossley #otalk are there common public health issues globally? that OTs can , are or should/ could be helping with? and how?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:08:03 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley mental health and wellbeing. #OTalk work-life balance (she says whistling). Managing transitions.(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:09:54 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley community and outreach, particularly in mental health areas I think. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:10:14 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes the fact that there seems so little enthusiasm for this topic today, is an indication of the significance of problem, IMHO #Otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:12:30 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes #otalk lifestyle diseases? crime? vocational? self esteem? anxiety? welfare state issues? being a productive member of society!(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:13:26 +0100)
@Th00ha @kirstyes @gilliancrossley yes, usually due to limited resources/staffing, public health can provide only so much. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:13:46 +0100)
@Th00ha RT @gilliancrossley : @kirstyes #otalk lifestyle diseases? crime? vocational? self esteem? anxiety? welfare state issues? being a productive member of society!(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:15:42 +0100)
@gilliancrossley #OTalk how can we do more to promote how OT can play a role in public health issues?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:15:54 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes @gilliancrossley #resilience within the context of occupational #justice is key to effective public health. #otalk #OTuesday (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:17:26 +0100)
@kirstyes @allisulli Enthuiasm has been hit and miss for few weeks plus we have got sun for the first time in forever ;0) #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:17:56 +0100)

@kirstyes @gilliancrossley all good ideas #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:18:21 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #OTalk Where in public health is it expressing life balance?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:19:17 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley Speak to local MP.I was going to do this but after hearing a friend having a response on a visible issue not so sure #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:20:10 +0100)
@allisulli #OT #publichealth #otalk http://t.co/6FujnIwm (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:20:54 +0100)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life I’m not entirely sure how much it is there. #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:21:09 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley oh this is something OT Australia is planning to do for #OTWeek this year. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:22:09 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life #otalk I think this is difficult because society has a view of work life balance not necessarily fitting with the individual(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:22:14 +0100)
@kirstyes I think that OT can show that a one-size fits all approach is not that helpful. #OTalk
E.g. Exercise prescription meant the gym. Boring!(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:22:15 +0100)
@kirstyes @allisulli my colleague is working with role emerging students on a Tier1/2/3 approach for school based OT for nursery/primary school #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:24:31 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Th00ha Great! #otalk maybe #otalk can do something for the next #OTGDS ?…(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:24:43 +0100)

@allisulli @kirstyes Sun is a good thing:) Summer is a short but sweet thing in New England. I don’t run a summer mtg for my prof. grp #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:26:28 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley #OTalk Exactly promo need for balance.. ESP in some illnesses fatigue management? Over expectation(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:27:50 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes hopefully it will catch on. Most services here, however, are medical model, not public health. It’s what therapists know #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:28:59 +0100)
@gilliancrossley #otalk OTs have a set of transferable skills Public health seems a great fit for OT! we have the skills! lets tell people and lets use them(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:29:06 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life life balance seems an underrated priority in general. Not addressed unless severely effecting health. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:30:25 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life #otalk maybe we can help with the management of expectation? for individuals and companies, gov etc..(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:30:36 +0100)
@clissa89 @gilliancrossley @kirstyes @allisulli sorry not at #otalk tonight, getting ready for work. as we say, people aren’t just ill 9-5!(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:31:00 +0100)
@kirstyes One way to look at things like this may be to look at funding for small projects but evaluate and write up. #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:31:20 +0100)
@kirstyes @Th00ha @gilliancrossley @symbolic_life but everything else is about prevention so why not balance too ;0) #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:32:16 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 @gilliancrossley @allisulli and occupations don’t just occur between 9 & 5.Often most meaningful ones outside these hours? #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:33:32 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life @kirstyes lessons can def be learned with cross cultural understandings don’t think anyone has it perfect though! #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:33:40 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life Many corporate companies have private health care..and discount rates on gyms Which is supports health but? The encouragement of use? #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:34:34 +0100)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley Would love a siesta. Recognition that people may be more productive at diff times. #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:34:39 +0100)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley is it more important that work is done or that you attend set hours? #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:35:36 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes @clissa89 @gilliancrossley I just try to make my hours meaningful #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:36:11 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life #otalk yes but I have to wonder how much is to make it seem like you have lots of work benefits.. you don’t have time to use(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:36:36 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @allisulli #otalk me too! we r lucky to understand importance of life balance! for some negative routine becomes constant with no insight(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:38:49 +0100)
@gerbil10 #OTalk I think issue is that OT practice in UK has been shaped by pull of welfare & medical model we have difficulty thinking as OT purists.(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:39:33 +0100)
@Th00ha #otalk its important for pple not to think tht an OT is excessive. OT can be a personal trainer, in life, for life balance.(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:39:37 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #OTalk Could OTs be utilised in Occ Heatlh department supporting with balance and back to work programs? Supporting public health?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:39:38 +0100)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley @kirstyes this makes perfect sense to me, but this idea is languishing due to economics #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:40:28 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @allisulli we understand it but do we always follow it? #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:41:22 +0100)
@kirstyes RT @Symbolic_Life : #OTalk Could OTs be utilised in Occ Heatlh department supporting with balance and back to work programs? Supporting public health?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:41:43 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life #otalk ! Definitely! I think that as OTs we need to be MORE willing to not have OT as our job title but can still be OT.(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:41:52 +0100)
@Th00ha @kirstyes @clissa89 @gilliancrossley @allisulli Yes, at 5am for me right now. But true. Finding balance esp whn out of normal hrs. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:41:58 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @allisulli #otalk I’m not convinced its possible to always be balanced! life throws spanners! we have tools to help us adjust…(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:43:43 +0100)
@allisulli @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley in the US, occupational health nurses have traditionally done this. #OT would b push-in: challenging #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:44:56 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @allisulli you are right of course. #OTalk
It’s maybe whether we are allowed/encouraged to use the tools.(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:45:16 +0100)
@Th00ha @allisulli @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley here in Aus back to work is hugely OT domain. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:46:46 +0100)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley @kirstyes balance has contextual and temporal concepts anyway that changes depending on your point of view #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:48:08 +0100)
@gerbil10 @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @allisulli it’s about using evidenced based practice to demonstrate effectiveness of our tools #OTalk .(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:48:13 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @allisulli not overly familiar with Occ health nurse role. my experience mainly medical. injections etc. med fit not Occ fit for work #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:49:27 +0100)
@kirstyes @gerbil10 @gilliancrossley @allisulli I was thinking more personal tools here but yes there is some need for this. #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:49:31 +0100)
@allisulli @Th00ha @symbolic_life @gilliancrossley Maybe I need to consider a move. Haha I love #publichealth #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:49:32 +0100)
@allisulli @gerbil10 @kirstyes @gilliancrossley this will happen eventually but it is a huge mountain for our field to climb right now #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:51:40 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life @kirstyes encouragement of balance in structure in schools- lunch breaks and holidays? is this publicised?do ppl understand why? #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:52:30 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Th00ha OT global day of service http://t.co/PDlXkAcq #otALK (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:53:43 +0100)

@Th00ha RT @gilliancrossley : @Th00ha OT global day of service http://t.co/PDlXkAcq #otALK (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:55:19 +0100)
@gerbil10 @allisulli @kirstyes @gilliancrossley i agree but we are expensive resource and we need to show our value #OTalk .(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:55:21 +0100)
@gilliancrossley Great #OTalk everyone! any final thoughts?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:55:30 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life what mountain isn’t huge? In OT?… Always promote through philosophy and understanding… #OTalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:56:26 +0100)
@Th00ha Interesting #OTalk .(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:56:28 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Th00ha we did an #otalk about promoting OT for the last one. maybe we can do one about OT public health promotion? get some blogs going etc(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:57:47 +0100)
@allisulli @kirstyes @gilliancrossley always a pleasure. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:58:31 +0100)
@gilliancrossley great chat! #otalk as always! I will grab the chat in 24 hours in case anyone else wishes to add any thoughts(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:01:01 +0100)
@Th00ha @gilliancrossley yes, and expand on what we talked abt here tonight on #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:01:16 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #OTalk And that’s the way the cookie crumbles.. it’s been emotional… OT talk… Cheers lovely OTs #onceagainattemptingtocharm πŸ˜‰ #useless (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:01:29 +0100)
@gloriasunto RT @gilliancrossley : https://t.co/NmLg2yoL Tonights #otalk the role of OT in public health. Do you have any thoughts? are you doing this already?(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:20:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley There can be so many levels of this. I believe one front is increasing the public’s health literacy. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:24:05 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @Th00ha health literacy (HL) is 1. From a HL presentation I heard at #AOTA12 , the public’s HL level is appalling. #Otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:31:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes agreed! #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:32:30 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life I believe it’s embedded in our practice. It needs to be more obvious, though. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:33:11 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @kirstyes : I think that OT can show that a one-size fits all approach is not that helpful. #OTalk
E.g. Exercise prescription meant the gym. Boring!(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:33:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @kirstyes If I am going to run my group, I probably will run through the summer. #otalk (1/2)(Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:34:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @kirstyes That’s because summer is “low season” in my church, where I will run my group. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:35:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley That’s why I think the public needs to know more about LRD. It deals with energy conservation, too! #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:36:11 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Th00ha @gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life True! Have read too many cases online about life balances where OT could have helped. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:36:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @kirstyes @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley I believe work is done is better, cuz it’s important to go the extra mile for our clients. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:37:47 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Th00ha That’s why lifestyle redesign should be more widely known in OT world, and outside, too. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:38:36 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @allisulli : @Th00ha @symbolic_life @gilliancrossley Maybe I need to consider a move. Haha I love #publichealth #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:39:08 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @gerbil10 @kirstyes @gilliancrossley you bet I will help lead a study on LRD and ppl w/ autism. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:39:41 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gerbil10 @allisulli @kirstyes @gilliancrossley we need more studies like the well elderly out there, for different populations. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:40:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT My OT conference presentation in October is actually going to touch on public health. #otalk (Tue, 24 Jul 2012 23:42:18 +0100)

@clissa89 Future #OTalk topic: OT & Psychological Therapies? #CBT and #DBT were frequently mentioned at #COT2012 …(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:07:07 +0100)
@BillWongOT another #otalk / #occhat topic- placements and readiness for OT practice. 1/2(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:11:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT I am thinking of that one because placement requirements somewhat varies in the states. #otalk / #occhat (Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:12:13 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT hi Bill I think that would be an #OTalk topic as it is about OT practice but certainly something worth discussing(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:16:21 +0100)
@clissa89 #OTalk Interesting to learn ” #CBT Skills” of “graded task activity” & “activity planning” today! #occupationaltherapy (Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:16:46 +0100)
@BillWongOT another one I think of for #otalk – handwriting and keyboarding in peds practice- when to draw the line?(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 18:18:38 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Oooh. That is interesting. #OTalk Does sound like a good topic to go with.(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 21:29:56 +0100)
@BillWongOT @allisulli @claireOT Let me know on this, since I am hosting #otalk on 8/21, since I will no longer be a student then.(Thu, 26 Jul 2012 22:04:32 +0100)
