F71 CORECOM – One Competency Document for Occupational Therapists in Canada - Shared screen with speaker view
Good to see you all virtually!!!
The three different competency documents were all developed for good reasons but it became more obvious that having a united approach across stakeholders would serve the profession well. I had the pleasure of attending the meeting in Toronto when this agreement was reached.
Yessss very good!
Agreed! Well done Catherine!!
merci France et Michele!
How is everyone? Is the speed of the presentation good?
Yes all good.
Any questions on section 1?
Will Indigenous engagement extend beyond the 2 week consultation process...this seems central to creating an inclusive document in the Canadian context?
Sara Lizabeth Saunders, Ms
We will be addressing this
Great question Debbie. I agree!
Was consideration given to developing a shorter, clearer set of competency requirements, similar to the NZOT version? Use of Bloom's Trajectory appears to imply that uncertainty and conscious awareness of the limitations of one's knowledge are the bottom of the competency hierarchy, yet these capacities are the foundation of cultural humility and surely also of aspirations towards client-centred practices?
Yes, Everyone involved has reviewed the NZOT version and noted what we liked about them.
We expect that each version will be critiqued and revised based on the very comments you've made, Karen.
Relevant and timely advisory work in streamlining practice competencies across Canada. Thank you, Merci de nous avoir introduits au document. Perhaps I missed this... In the months to come before March 2021, or afterwards, have you considered engaging additional occupational therapists and people who received occupational therapy services, or are you limiting the development of the competency document to the council/those recruited? … A broader engagement would help inform the making of the document from a community perspective, and ultimately its relevance for clients. … our beneficiaries.
There are multiple levels of consultation yet to occur over the summer and fall.
in the fall, every occupational therapist in Canada will be invited to comment as part of the validation exercise
we will also be inviting clients/patients/recipients of occupational therapy services to comment
Great Catherine. Good to know. Triangulation by also engaging clients themselves (sooner rather than later) will strengthen the outcomes of the project.
Sorry. I keep losing my internet connection. The rural disadvantgae!
Agree with Michèle about engaging clients asap - will clients be actively involved beyond comments?
Bravo! Looking forward to the opportunity to comment and contribute.
ce projet est fort intéressant et bien hâte de voir le projet final
et les versions intermédiaires….
Merci pour la mise à jour, processus très intéressant. Merci pour le bilinguisme!
The Practice Profile for the Occupational Therapist Assistant mirrors the OT profile...will that be considered or looked at in the domino effect of this new competency??
Excellent presentation all - well done!
Great, thank you!
'Competency' implies an end point of ability, which in OT practice would not be realistic (nor desired). Could other words be considered (ex: "responsibilities" or "obligations' or "expectations")?
Language is indeed important Marie-Lyne. Good point.
Eva I like 'proficiency'... Thank you for your clarification, it's helpful.
will there be a process of critical review in relation to ensuring ableist assumptions are not built into document, as well as other forms of potential discrimination
Great to see you all! Thank you for the presentation. Merci beaucoup.
Thank you so much for the presentation!
Debbie, I'm confident that the academic review will be reasonably critical!
Thank you! Merci!
I'm confident you have piqued curiosity for many participants who will be looking forward to the next steps of consultation and validation! Thank you all.
Well done!!! Bravo!
you did a great job, thank you merci!
Very informative presentation. Thank-you.
Thank you for the informative presentation. The English French connection truly reflects our national profile. Look forward to learning more.
Thank you so much everyone!
merci beaucoup - thanks everyone!
