Sheffield Occupational Therapy Clinical Academic Network (SOTCA) Launched!

A group of Sheffield based clinical academic occupational therapists have formed a network – SOTCA. The network is focussed around advancing occupational therapy knowledge and practice in and around Sheffield. It is open to any occupational therapists who share the aim of improving occupational therapy knowledge and practice in and around Sheffield and more widely.

Meetings will be informal, designed to form collaborations and provide peer support to those occupational therapist developing a clinical academic career. Group members are based within clinical practice, education, research and training. The group links with a number of national organisations with similar aims such as the College of Occupational Therapists, NIHR Clinical Academic Network and the Council for Allied Health Professions Research.


The next meeting will be in October 2016. Please contact Laura Di Bona (l.dibona@sheffield.ac.uk) if you are interested in attending.
