Who We Are

We are an enthusiastic group of OTs who have worked in a variety of settings including public health, education, research, private clinical practice and medicolegal practice. We have worked with young and old, and in psychiatry and physical rehabilitation. We love our profession and are always looking for new and innovative ways to update treatment and make rehabilitation more effective.

Having worked together at the University of Witwatersrand training both undergraduate and postgraduate Occupational Therapy Students, we are passionate about teaching and learning. We look forward to delving into the evidence with you at our workshops and finding practical ways to transform assessment and treatment using the latest research to make rehabilitation more effective within the scope of the unique South African health care setting.
