Welcome to the show notes for Episode 101 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.
In OT school, most students are tasked with doing a deep dive into the OT Practice Framework, better known as the OTPF. But have you taken a second to reflect on the OTPF since you landed your school-based OT job?
It is important to periodically go back and review your practice as it relates to the OTPF, especially when it is updated (like it was in 2020).
In today's episode of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast, we are taking a look at the OTPF and how school-based OT fits within the OT Framework with two of AOTA's Commission on Practice members who helped to write the most recent iteration of the OT Practice Framework.
Joining us today, we have Susan M. Cahill Ph.D., OTR/L, FAOTA, and Julie Miller MOT, OTR/L, SWC. Susan and Julie are both lifelong OTPs who love our field and have volunteered with AOTA in a number of ways. Have a listen to learn more about Susan and Julie and hear how the OTPF-4 came to be and how school-based OT fits into the equation.
