Postgraduate student in Occupational Therapy, Katy Bergson talks about the changes she has witnessed training as an OT.
Even as a student new to the profession, I can see the changes as OT pushes the boundaries and moves into new areas. This shift is not just happening within OT; marks of it can be seen across healthcare, for example with prescribing physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists working on youth offender programmes. Add in the overall context of large-scale changes in the social care system and it’s scarcely possible to predict what’s in store in a couple of months, let alone in the next few years. This makes it an interesting time for trainees like me.
