The OT Journal Club you've been waiting for...

Have you ever been interested in attending a journal club, but things didn’t quite work out? Journal clubs often face many barriers and challenges. There may be not enough time to do the prep work or attend a session, there may not be anyone with research skills within your team to explain the tricky concepts or keep up the enthusiasm, the content could be too difficult, or the format ends up being too boring.

Well, I’m excited to announce that in 2023, I will be launching Your OT Tutor’s Journal Club for OTs. I’ll be putting a slightly different spin on the traditional journal club to make it more accessible for all OTs. I’ll help out with the prep work, the scary research and stats talk will be kept simple, and the focus of the session will be on discussing how the research evidence discussed in the article can be translated into your clinical practice. Sessions will be held online, regularly, and at an affordable cost to help you meet your CPD targets and ensure your day-to-day practice stays evidenced based.

Sign-up below if you'd like to be notified when each session is available, and check out the free trial session resources below. You'll also be given FREE access to the Your OT Tutor Learning Management System (LMS) so you can see how everything works.

Registrations for the March sessions are now open! The topic will be supporting OT students on clinical placements.

Here's the details...

Topic: Supporting OT students during clinical placements

Times: 3 sessions to choose from – Tuesday 21/3 12.30PM OR Wednesday 22/3 4.00PM OR Monday 27/3 8.00AM – all sessions Queensland time (make sure you convert to your local time zone!) – sign-up via the same link and attend any session.

What if I can’t make those times? You can sign-up to access a recorded version – you can access the preparation materials via the Learning Management System straight away, but the recording will not be available until a few days after the last live session. You can also sign-up any time after the live sessions have finished to access the recorded version.

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.
