Theme: Canadian Model of Occupational Participation (CanMOP): Promoting Occupational Participation through Collaborative Relationship-focused Occupational Therapy

The Connect & Reflect series was established to support implementation of learning from the CMHL Occupational Therapy (OT) Education Days. It is a space for OT's across Victoria at all stages of their career to connect and engage in reflective learning and knowledge sharing about aspects of OT mental health practice.

This session will focus on consolidating the knowledge and theory from the 2023 CMHL OT Online Education Day related to the Canadian Model of Occupational Participation, Approach and Framework, and implementation within our Victorian Public Mental Health context. The CAOT webinar series will be used within the session to increase knowledge alongside reflective learning activities that allow us to connect, share and problem solve how we can apply this new learning within our own practice settings. We will also align aspects of the CanMOP, approach and framework to the Victorian Mental Health Capability Framework to consider how these with current priority areas for learning and development for public mental health OTs.
