Can Occupational Therapist’s social models of practice offer long term sustainable solutions in healthcare?

Check out Michelle Perryman on Episode 13 of the Podcast “Occupied” (http://www.brockcook.com/013/) eloquently speak about how Occupational Therapists as a young profession in a medical model world don’t just offer a quick fix solution. Instead our profession can truly offer a more sustainable approach by looking at the social influences on people’s health. 

It would be great to get more people positing on the forum, offering ideas around sustainable healthcare and Occupational Therapy. If there is anything you have read, watched or listened to, or examples of practice that you think others could benefit from, please do post to this forum.
