Hi! I am an experienced occupational therapist that is passionate about clinical education, knowledge translation, quality improvement and research (#OTnerd!). I am dedicated to inspiring allied health professionals to engage in life-long learning, and love facilitating clinical education in all forms.
I have experience as a clinical educator in hospital, community, and university settings. My clinical areas of expertise include working with adult clients with a range of physical impairments, including neurological, orthopaedic, burns, surgical, hand therapy and age-related conditions. Finding ways to help new graduate therapists bridge the gap between what they learn at university, and what they need to know for clinical practice, is a particular area of interest.
If you'd like to find out how YOUR OT TUTOR can help you or your OT team, get in touch today!
Over 14 years' experience working as an occupational therapist and still providing clinical services to clients - I'm up to date with the challenges experienced by therapists today.
Extensive experience as a clinical educator within university and clinical settings - I understand everyone learns differently and can tailor my approach to suit your learning needs.
Calm, encouraging approach to teaching - I'm friendly and approachable so you can feel comfortable to ask any 'silly questions' without judgement.
Dedicated to helping you succeed - If I don't have the expertise you need, I'll help you find someone who does.
Proven dedication to achieving high-quality outcomes - I have experience presenting at international and national conferences and have published my work in a peer-reviewed journal.
Understands life is busy! - I'm a working mum myself so understand the importance of making learning as accessible and efficient as possible so you can fit it into your own busy schedule.
When you sign-up, you won't just get a link to a zoom recording, you'll get access to the Your OT Tutor Learning Management System (LMS) where you can easily jump to the question you're looking for, access other relevant freebies, and revisit the content whenever you want (NO EXPIRY!).
Have you recently started in an NDIS caseload and are having trouble getting your head around what a Functional Capacity Assessment is and how to do them efficiently and effectively?
Even if your workplace offers training in how to do FCAs, it may be limited to a short tutorial or zoom webinar. This course is different - it is over 5 hours of video content PLUS built in activities and quizzes to help you develop and test your clinical reasoning.
To find out more, check out the video below, or click on the button to sign-up for instant access.
Are you interested in attending Your OT Tutor's online Journal Club in 2023, but not sure if it's right for you or your team?
Click on the link below to access a recording of a trial session. The article reviewed was a systematic review on the OT role in sleep management. The session starts with an overview of the article and a "research fundamentals tip", followed by a discussion about how we can translate the research evidence into our clinical practice.
By clicking on the link, you'll also be given FREE access to the Your OT Tutor Learning Management System, so you can test-drive how everything works!
Clare can provide one-on-one or group training for individual OTs, OT students, or OT teams, on selected topics. Consulting services are also available if you'd like help to tidy up or establish your own in-house CPD program. Services are goal-focused and flexible to suit your individual needs.
NB Services are focused on achieving specific learning goals rather than clinical supervision.
The Learning Library contains online learning courses and other resources on a variety of topics. Some items are available to download for free, while others can be purchased and immediately accessed with a few simple clicks.
NB The Learning Library is currently under construction - sign-up to our mailing list to be notified when our first products are available!
Journal clubs are a great way to learn from peers and stay up to date with evidence-based-practice, while also ticking off some CPD hours. The Your OT Tutor Journal Club allows you to attend fully facilitated sessions or use the fully prepared resources and coaching to run your own in-house journal club.
NB The first session will be available in February 2023.
As a busy practice owner, I’ve absolutely loved having this resource available for my new grads . Even though I’ve got plenty of my own guides and sample FCA reports to share with them , what I lack is time to sit down and go through these step by step to make sure they truly understand the process. The 8 hours worth of online learning has been a massive investment for me and a valuable resource for my team. Thank you Clare Batkin!
Director and Occupational Therapist
Clare has been an invaluable resource for me as a new graduate OT - I regularly check her business page: Your OT Tutor and have recommended my colleagues do the same for easy to digest updates and tips! Clare has gone out of her way to assist me with my CPD portfolio and provided me with such a helpful template to use (a life saver!). Clare is extremely helpful, approachable, and very responsive despite her busy schedule.
New Graduate Occupational Therapist
Clare has done a fabulous job with spearheading 'Your OT Tutor', a journal club that has really helped me stay up to date with the current evidence on topics directly relevant to my practice. Her approach is comprehensive yet practical, given how time-poor clinicians often are, and I am very much looking forward to our 2023 sessions. I highly recommend Clare to other OTs - those starting out as well as others who are more established in the profession - she is an absolute asset to both.
