First eOTo OT Knowledge Sharing Workshop a Success!
Dal School of Occupational Therapy instructor and academic coordinator of the Disability Management Certificate Program, Karen Joudrey recently initiated an interactive workshop format in partnership with the Nova Scotia Society of Occupational Therapists (NSSOT). Prof. Joudrey wanted to provide opportunities for Nova Scotia OTs to share knowledge in various practice areas with the goal to build capacity and also as an opportunity to network. She ermed this knowledge sharing eOTo (each one teach one).
Prof. Joudrey facilitated the inaugural eOTo session on the topic of office ergonomic assessment. The workshop was held in two sessions on February 22 and 23, 2019. The topic was very popular and at capacity with 20 participants in each session.
Four of Dal’s 2nd year OT students, who have learned a lot about office ergonomic assessments during recent placement for fieldwork through Dal OT's @WORK project, co-facilitated the eOTo session with Prof. Joudrey on February 23.
The students shared current research evidence in this practice area, and also supported NSSOT members in practice some hands-on skills on workstation ergonomics.
Kudos to Prof. Joudrey and NSSOT! The Dal School of Occupational Therapy looks forward to learning about the next eOTo workshop!
