Courageous and creative: emergent pathways in occupational therapy

Whilst many pathways in independent occupational therapy practice are clear and appear well trodden, new pathways are emerging which require courage and creativity. Jen Gash will invite us to dream a little during this session and consider what the future of independent practice could hold and importantly, how we might support each other and work together during these exciting but uncertain times. She will also explore the notion of what it means to be independent and probably question some other concepts too.
