April is OT Awareness Month
I recently presented a lecture, 'Introduction to OT', for the staff in the Geriatrics and Gerontology Department at
, Abbasyia. Ain Shams University Hospital
I was invited by Dr. Ahmed Shawky Mohammedin. He heard about OT while attending a conference in
and he was interested in sharing this knowledge with his colleagues. He felt his patients in the geriatric department could definitely benefit from OT services. Malta
The presentation was an overview of OT (i.e. educational background of OT's, where OT's work, who OT's work with, and what is involved in an OT assessment and treatment). Various examples of how OT can benefit geriatric cases were also discussed.
