Cosyfeet OT Award 2018
Are you planning a research project or voluntary work in 2018?
Entries are now invited for the Cosyfeet Occupational Therapy Award 2018. This £1000 award is open to any qualified OT or student OT who is planning to undertake voluntary work, a work placement or research, either in the UK or abroad. Your application should demonstrate that your chosen project will help develop your professional knowledge and skills while benefitting others.
Palliative care specialist, Gillian Walker, won the award in 2017 to help fund a pioneering project at Northern Ireland Hospice. The project focused on providing sessions on falls awareness to Day Hospice patients and those who assist them.
“We have made the sessions lively and interactive, encouraging group discussion and peer support,” says Gillian. “A range of equipment is available for people to try, such as walking aids, chair raisers, leg lifters, long handled aids and specialist footwear.”
The Cosyfeet Occupational Therapy Award is designed to assist with costs associated with the applicant’s selected project, which could include expenses for equipment, travel or living.
The winner will be expected to submit a report and photographs of their experience, and to be included in Cosyfeet publicity relating to the award.
