Ideas for Using The OT Month Toolkit
When I began work a rural hospital, I always felt overwhelmed every time OT month came around. I wanted to celebrate, but I was so busy with patient care that little materialized in April. This toolkit contains everything you will need to kick off a great OT month celebration. Here are some suggestions for how to utilize the items:
Distribute handouts (along with treats!) to fellow employees over a designated lunch period
Use the pin-ups to add swag to your office
Write thank you notes on the postcard and send them to referral sources and vendors
Host a lunch and learn using the powerpoint background
For more suggestions check out the blog post How to Celebrate OT Month!
Suggestions for Printing
You will be able to use this digital product to print the number of items you need for this year and for future OT months. You can print them on your department's color printer or consider one of these options:
Your hospital's marketing department
A local print store (such as a Fed Ex Store)
An online service such as Moo
With this purchase, you receive a site license, which means you and any other therapists at your site can use the files for years to come. If you move to a different work setting, please consider repurchasing.
