The Occupational Therapy Show 2017 is fast approaching and the JustOT team is busy getting ready for our exhibition at stand N60, where we'd love to see you for a chat!
This year's OT Show kicks off on Wednesday November 22nd, running until Thursday November 23rd, and will be taking place at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham - a handy central location that makes it accessible for attendees travelling to the event from all over the UK.
More than 100 conference talks and seminars on the subject of occupational therapy will be on offer over the course of the event, with a wide variety of topics to be covered.
The two-day event will begin with a keynote speech from Joanne Fillingham, clinical director of allied health professions (AHPs) at NHS Improvement, who will be talking about how AHPs can be put into action to deliver sustainable and transformative occupational therapy programmes.
Other keynote speeches will be delivered by Michael Iwama, chair of occupational therapy at August University, and the president of the Council of Occupational Therapists for the European Countries Stephanie Saenger, among others.
Outside of the keynote theatre, there are several other theatres where attendees will be able to take part in debates on topics such as whether or not some occupational therapists should be based in schools for children with special educational needs.
There'll also be talks on how clients should drive the occupational therapy narrative, and how social swimming groups have been shown to dramatically improve Japanese occupational therapy patients' health.
Alongside the packed programme of debates, discussions, workshops and lectures, there will also be plenty of networking opportunities for attendees, providing them with the chance to meet others in the occupational therapy profession and keep up-to-date with all of the latest developments in the field.
Dozens of exhibitors from the healthcare world will be at the NEC over the course of the OT Show too, so do make sure you pop over to see the JustOT team and find out how we could potentially help you move forward in your occupational therapy career in the future.
