Synopsis

During product demonstrations, particularly at exhibitions, we often hear the comment “we don’t do bathing”. This session looks to consider the implications of this through an exploration of holistic practice and what that means in practice. We explore the term ‘holism’ in relation to occupational therapy practice, and how it is applied across sectors and organisations with increased demand and pressure. There will be reflection on code of ethics and legislation to consider the implications of a “we don’t do…” stance.

Learning outcomes

Explore the term ‘holistic practice’ and its application.
Reflect on the challenges to holism and how it can be addressed.
Discuss implications on individuals and services of “we don’t do…”
