There has been quite the cold snap on the East Coast of Australia for those not aware, we are rugged up and ready for winter that is for sure.
In the meantime a colleague of mine has been working on a podcast series within her company called The OT Lifestyle Movement. Rhiannon came to my attention when she launched a very informative guide to tele-health during the lockdown that many Australians and those overseas were subject to. Many OTs and health professionals were already using tele-health as a service provision however lockdowns everywhere meant that tele-health was now ‘the’ option, if you weren’t using this option you were learning extremely fast how to. I had been using tele-health for a number of years and enjoy the freedom that it offers on so many levels, yes, there are some downsides, however, to be able to offer a service with minimal restrictions has meant that many people have continued receiving services/consults/meetings/contact during a difficult time.
With a little more research I also very quickly learnt that Rhiannon is also an OT working to bring many different skills to the profession which as I know from experience allows us to view our profession from a different view point and assist this profession to evolve and remain up to date. At times it would appear OTs that do this are either working on the fringes of what is considered ‘traditional OT’ or they are applying different skill sets, approaches, techniques that further enable our clients, colleagues and the profession to move into many different areas, either way I find it exciting to learn what others are doing that is different and it has always been an interest of mine. In this particular podcast you will learn about OT Coaching and using coaching as skill set within OT.
The podcast is attached here and while you are listening take the time to look around The OT Lifestyle Movement website, there is lot to learn. You can also download the podcast/series via iTunes, Spotify and Youtube, if you require these further links do not hesitate to email Rhiannon or myself and we can forward these on.
