Thank you to our Occupational Therapy Sustainability Volunteers
A (belated) happy new year to all our Occupational Therapy Susnet members!
This month marks one year since we created our three Occupational Therapy Sustainability Volunteer roles at CSH. I’d like to say a special big thank you to Sam, Niamh, Kat and Ffion for all their hard work over the past year!
Niamh continues to develop resources for the website and Sam continues to explore case studies in sustainable occupational therapy practice and occupational therapists' role in the NHS Forest. If you have any suggestions for resources or case studies then do please get in touch with them.
The voluntary role exploring the inclusion of sustainability within occupational therapy education was held by Kat (who wrote about her experience here), before Ffion stepped in to carry on the good work. Ffion helped write a report for the last COTED meeting about results from an OT educators sustainability survey, then unfortunately she quickly had to leave the role before she’d even properly introduced herself to you all! I’m now pleased to welcome Jenny to this education role, who will indeed be writing an introductory post soon.
I hope that 2018 treats all Occupational Therapy Susnet members very well! Do please keep us posted about sustainability developments in occupational therapy wherever you may be.
