I am proud to introduce my new project… a podcast
I recently joined The STAR Institute faculty. As my unique contribution, I created and am hosting a podcast!!
I recognize that many occupational therapy practitioners are so busy with their clinical responsibilities that it is hard to find time to read recent research and translate it into clinical action points. So… in cooperation with The STAR Insititute, I have created a series of conversations that are aimed at just that – translating research into practice
Occupational therapy best practices ask us to integrate knowledge into practice. Each episode of the first season offers a conversation aimed at translating the most current research into clinical action for occupational therapy practitioners. The podcast is produced by The STAR Institute in an effort to further our commitment to impacting quality of life by developing and promoting best practices for sensory health and wellness through treatment, education, and research.
Season One, Episode One
Executive director Virginia Spielmann joins me to introduce the STAR Institute for Sensory Processing’s podcast and discuss how a podcast is a wonderful medium to further the vision and mission of STAR Institute. In addition, we discuss the cornerstones of the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF-4) highlighting OT’s unique ability to integrate macro and micro viewpoints into our practice.
Listen in and hear how we plan to use this season of the podcast to share research to practice translation through our unique perspective on sensory integration, relationship, and regulation.
