A weekly twitter chat, designed to enable discussion about occupational therapy and the broader academic discipline of occupational science. https://otalk.co.uk
The first #OTalk took place on the 25thOctober 2011 and continues to run each Tuesday between 8-9pm UK time. #OTalk is run by a team of volunteers, including myself, we are passionate about empowering occupational therapists to engage in CPD.
