The OT Link is excited to host Alicia Swart MSc (OT) at Coffee Club.
Alicia has a clinical background largely in Adult Physical Rehabilitation. Following Community Service, Alicia joined a Life Health Care Gauteng Rehabilitation Hospital where she worked in the spinal, medical and neurological units. This provided a good foundation of experience for her move to the Western Cape Rehabilitation Centre, where she is currently working. She completed her undergraduate and postgraduate Occupational Therapy training at The University of Stellenbosch with a special interest in Spinal Cord Injury and Vocational Rehabilitation.
Alicia’s Masters Dissertation was titled: “The lived experiences of persons with Spinal Cord Injuries
engaging in remote work. A South African Perspective.” She is well read in this area and has presented her research findings locally and internationally including the WFOT: World Congress in August 2022.
Good to be exposed to remote work as a 'reasonable accommodation option' - Slides were quite text heavy, difficult to follow at times
