A fascinating range of topics are being presented in the popular student paper sessions at this year’s Annual Conference. Students from Glasgow Caledonian, Southampton, Plymouth, Brunel, Teesside and Canterbury Christ Church were selected to deliver their abstract and will address diverse issues including:

  • The rise of occupational therapy in disaster preparedness, response and recovery
  • The role of charities in return to work after brain injury
  • Parents’ view of young people with learning disabilities participating in social leisure occupations
  • Participation for people with psychosis
  • Marginalised children in Albania
  • Photographs in clinical practice.

Maureen Shiells, Education Manager (Pre registration) comments:

“I am very much looking forward to hearing how students are applying their learning in so many different ways and pioneering settings. Their innovative approaches and spirit reassure me that the occupational therapy profession is going to develop from strength to strength in their hands.”

Find out how the future occupational therapists are planning their role in the profession by attending the student paper session (session 12) on Monday 11 June from 15.50-17.25.
