E107: Chloe Warrilow and Emily Anderson - Occupational Therapy

Naman Julka-Anderson and Jo McNamara catch up with Chloe Warrilow and Emily Anderson as part of the Education and Workforce Development series (part 40).

Discussion about occupational therapy as a career, how they support patients and myths they wish people knew.
To use this podcast as CPD, look at these reflection points: 
1) consider your own workplace; do you have occupational therapist’s there? Are there any service users you work with who may benefit from occupational therapy input?
2) consider the need for MDT working within new service development; would occupational therapist’s fit into this service, and what patient outcomes could be improved with their involvement. 
3) reflect upon the need for holistic approaches to oncology care, and if there is anything you can do differently in your role to encompass this.
