Your occupational therapy journal club.
Did you know…
😮 About 1000 journal articles containing occupational therapy are published each year
😮 It takes an estimated 17 years for research to be incorporated into practice.
😳 Up to 45% of patients aren’t receiving care that is considered state-of-the-art.
😧 The amount of medical research is increasing exponentially each year (and it’s only getting harder to keep up).
With the OT Potential Club, you can feel confident your interventions are founded on the latest evidence.
✅ Weekly reviews of influential OT research
✅ Examples of beautiful, defensible OT notes and evals
✅ Tips on the best assessment tools out there
✅ Ongoing conversations with passionate fellow OTs
✅ Monthly bonus gifts to reward you for advancing our profession
✅ Help for those panicked moments when the next person on your caseload has a diagnosis you’ve never treated.
I know you care deeply about your patients, and you want to provide them with the best care possible. But, honestly, as occupational therapy practitioners, we often work in environments where it’s challenging to keep up with new evidence. The OT Potential Club is seeking to change that. We strive to keep you up-to-date and confident that you are truly helping patients craft lives they love.
Sarah Lyon, OTR/L, Founder of OT Potential
