Extra Wednesday Night SHOUT: An International Perspective - OT in Poland

Its March, the sun is shining, and we have a great line up for you - two SHOUT events in the same month! The first is an extra event squeezed in this week on 6th March, with the second following in our usual slot next week on 13th March.

So, what do we have in store for you this week? We are delighted to be welcoming special guest speakers all the way from Poland! 
Come and hear how innovative OTs in Poland are developing practice and training:
'The Use and Development of Occupational Therapy in Poland' on Wednesday 6th March

Sheffield Hallam University's occupational therapy lecturers are currently hosting three practitioners from Poland - two OTs and one psychologist. Our Polish guests are here to enhance their development of an occupational therapy programme by observing how Sheffield Hallam train their OT students. 

Keen to share an international perspective on OT, the practitioners will be speaking on how occupational therapy is viewed in Poland, along with its history. This is a great opportunity to broaden your understanding of the challenges and opportunities that occupational therapy faces in countries other than the UK.

The talk will take place in the Robert Winston Building at Collegiate Campus. Registration and light refreshments are from 5.30pm in the reception/cafe, with the talk starting at 6pm and finishing before 7.30pm. 
Costs: £2 for students and BAOT members, and £3 for non-members. 

To book your place at this popular event send a message to shout.event@gmail.com and we will confirm your place. 
Please note that we are no longer using the previous Hotmail account due to technical difficulties and any messages sent to there during February will not have been read - you may also have to re-book for upcoming events.

We look forward to seeing you there!
