I am an Australian occupational therapist, educator and researcher. I have worked as an OT in mental health, vocational rehabilitation and a private surgical hospital. I am passionate using online technology to enhance the knowledge and growth of the occupational therapy profession. In my PhD research I am looking at the role of online technologies in information management and knowledge transfer in occupational therapy. Views expressed and stories shared on this blog are my opinion and do not represent views of my employer or professional registration body.

The goal of this Blog is to provide a space for OT's to network around the topic of technology in networking, lifelong learning and OT practice and to share resources and ideas so that our profession may continue to grow and individuals, groups and communities continue to experience the benefits of OT.

Computer technology offers opportunities for advancement in occupational therapy knowledge and approaches by creating opportunity for:
  • Online networking and professional communication;

  • Life-long learning and evidence-based practice as research and information becomes better available; and

  • OT practice advancement in technology using new treatment tools and approaches, continual improvement of assistive devices and development of online communities of support.
