VdTMoCA OTs get writing

On 27 & 28 June 2014, Sue Griffiths and Roshni Khatri from the Faculty of Health, OT programmes at the University of Northampton and Wendy Sherwood, International Creative Ability Network (ICAN), delivered a Writing Retreat to support OTs in writing on the VdTMoCA for publication.  

There was a great buzz over the 2 days as delegates built their confidence in writing.  The event ended with the creation of writing groups  - small groups of OTs that are collaborating on writing an article or reviewing the literature in order to develop a research proposal.  These efforts hopefully will contribute to a bid for a special edition of BJOT on the model in 2016.

Research interests were also identified as possible future research projects. 

If you would like to find out who is working in which field, and has an interest in a research topic similar to yours, contact bethwhite@vdtmocaf-uk.com.  Similarly, if you have research in progress, let the Foundation know so that we can develop a research network.

To find out more about the Writing Retreat and the articles in progress, look out for the next edition  Participation for a full write-up.
