Occupational Therapy Week 2020
OT Week 2020 runs from Monday 26th October to Sunday 1st November
The AOTI OT Week 2020 campaign is being run to coincide with World Occupational Therapy Day on 27th October. The purpose of OT Week is to celebrate the Occupational Therapy profession, promote greater awareness of the valuable work occupational therapists do and highlight the benefits of Occupational Therapy for those who receive it.
Occupational Therapy: Supportive, Practical, Essential
The theme of OT Week this year is Occupational Therapy: Supportive, Practical, Essential. AOTI has developed resources and will run a social media campaign around this message. We will be active each day of the campaign encouraging people to engage in discussion and celebration of Occupational Therapy. We are keen to hear from occupational therapists, people who have or are receiving Occupational Therapy services and health and social care professional colleagues.
Campaign Hashtag: #OTweek
The AOTI Communications Committee will be running a social media campaign throughout OT Week and the hashtag for the campaign is #OTweek. We will have daily Tweets and Facebook posts with key messages about the value, benefits and importance of Occupational Therapy. Lookout for AOTI Tweets and Facebook posts so you can retweet and share them and be sure to share your views on why Occupational Therapy is supportive, practical and essential. We hope to create a very positive buzz online about our wonderful profession building on the success of the recent AOTI Virtual Conference.
We encourage you to spread the message during OT Week that Occupational Therapy is supportive, practical and essential and to highlight the value, benefits and importance of the work occupational therapists do. To help play your part in the #OTweek campaign we have developed a range of resources that you can use:
- A printable poster in A3 and A4 formats
- A Facebook banner
- A Twitter banner
- An email signature banner
Please use these resources and share them with your colleagues, family and friends to get the message out there during OT Week.
