World OT Day OT Awareness Presentation Punita V. Solanki

  1. 1. Celebrating World Occupational Therapy Day 27th October, 2019 Sunday
  2. 2. The healthcare profession of Occupational Therapy (OT) came to existence in India, by establishment of the first Occupational Therapy School in Asia, at Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College & King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, Parel, Mumbai, Maharashtra, founded by an American lady Mrs. Kamala Vishnu Nimbkar (nee Elizabeth Lundy) in the year 1950.
  3. 3. Occupational Therapy Day was first launched on 27th October, 2010. Since then, it has been an important date in the occupational therapy calendar, to promote and celebrate the profession internationally. It is celebrated throughout India during the All India Occupational Therapists’ Association’s (AIOTA) OTIndia month i.e. 27th October to 26th November.
  4. 4. “My best wishes to you on the World OT Day. You are a valued, much necessary and indispensable team member!” ~ Dr. Ashok N. Johari Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  5. 5. ~ Prof. Dr. Nareshkumar S. Dhaniwala Orthopaedic Surgeon Nanded, Maharashtra, India
  6. 6. “When bones are fragile Therapists make them mobile Though doctors mend the joints Therapists are the ones who bend the joints! Best wishes on the World Occupational Therapy Day” ~ Dr. Binoti Arun Sheth Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  7. 7. “I can safely say, that no treatment can be complete without the inputs of an occupational rehabilitation specialist - who helps maximize the output of the physical recovery, and truly gets the patient back on track . The role of Occupational rehabilitation therapists seems under rated, but make no mistake - they form the most important link in Orthopedic rehabilitation!” ~ Dr. Abhay Nene Spine Orthopaedic Surgeon Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  8. 8. “Wish you all the best for the upcoming World Occupational Therapy Day. Having studied at KEM, Mumbai offered the first opportunity and awareness that there existed a subject called Occupational Therapy, apart from Physiotherapy, thought the differences were not apparent to me then. However, once my Orthopaedic residency started I could gradually appreciate the role of both type of therapist in the rehabilitation process which was part and parcel of the treatment of most orthopaedic conditions. The importance of the therapist as an integral part of the treating team was further strengthened during my Upper limb fellowship days at Wrightington Hospital, UK, where I found that results of even the simplest of surgeries were vastly influenced by the hand therapy team. Today, I am fortunate to have the great rehab team in the hospital I work, which includes a couple of Occupational Therapists apart from a posse of Physiotherapists. Their hard work and team effort eventually translates to a happy patient, ready to return to daily life without significant disability and the confidence to get back to their life. Wishing you and the entire family of therapists a very happy Diwali as well.” ~ Dr. Anirban Chatterjee Paediatric & Hand Orthopaedic Surgeon Kolkata, West Bengal, India
  9. 9. “We do orthopaedic surgeries, when after surgeries, patient is not able to use particular body part due to pain, or sometimes limb is protected in cast or brace (immobilization) for fracture or ligament healing. When limbs, spinal muscles are not used for these reasons they go into disuse atrophy or wasting, joints loose their flexibility and become stiff. To attain maximum functionality of limb or any body part it is crucial to regain maximum ligament flexibility, pliability of joint, strength of muscles. It is possible with well supervised occupation therapy. It is not possible to evaluate, each patient in such a detailed manner in post-operative state. An occupational therapist in the team who understands and trained in detailed evaluation is helpful in giving regular feedback about the functional improvement of the patient. In cases where the improvement is suddenly plateaued or not progressing as per the expectation, is noted by therapist and reported to the orthopaedic surgeon. It helps in better outcome of the individual patients.” ~ Dr. Shailesh K. Mishra Joint and Arthroscopy Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  10. 10. “Upper limb surgery and rehab is multidisciplinary. Occupational therapist play a vital role in helping the overall recovery and return to productive life. They contribute majorly in deformity correction and prevention, as well as functional rehabilitation.” ~ Dr. Mukund R. Thatte Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
  11. 11. “Wish all a happy diwali. On the auspicious day of lights, I wish all Occupational Therapists on occasion of the World Occupational Therapy Day, a prosperous professional life for the needy patients. My four decade experience, feedbacks - the team cannot perform without an Occupational therapist in Ortho, Plastic, Neuro, Cardio etc.” ~ Prof. Dr. Arun Kumar Choudhury. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Odisha, India
  12. 12. “If you light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your path. May we always be the reason for someone’s happiness. Best wishes on World Occupational Therapy Day and AIOTA’s OTIndia month 2019.” ~ Dr. Anil K. Srivastava President, the All India Occupational Therapists’ Association Executive Chairman, the Academic Council of Occupational Therapy Editor-in-Chief, the Indian Journal of Occupational Therapy WFOT Delegate Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India
  13. 13. “About more than 80% of prehensile activities are performed through upper extremity and it represents largest area in brain. Occupational therapist is most important member of Rehab team. Occupational therapy (OT) approach is creative and functional, due to this OT converts liabilities into assets for patients’ functional and productive life, and at large family and country.

Occupational Therapists help people, view their injuries as a challenge to overcome, by positive and proactive strategies, for timely, faster and early return to life tasks. We educate patients to take responsibilities of their health as a wealth!” ~ Punita V. Solanki Visiting Consultant Occupational Therapist Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
