Many health professionals working in generic roles struggle to keep their professional identity. Dr Julie Rowse, a proud occupational therapist, has worked in generic mental health positions throughout the first 17 years of her career. Each profession brings a unique perspective to a generic role, for example a case management position.
Julie is passionate about her professional roots as an occupational therapist and as a clinical supervisor of numerous staff across the disciplines has always encouraged health professionals to embrace and use their specific skills within the generic role.
This workshop will inspire participants to connect with their professional roots and identify how their specific professional skills can be used within a generic role.
- To identify what unique skills your profession brings to the generic role you are employed in.
- To be able to know and explain what it is that you do in your role and why you do it (may professionals struggle to explain what they do and why, even if they are very competent at their job).
- To be able to articulate to others what your profession contributes to the role and why it is important.
- To understand other professions, their background, and what different disciplines can bring in a generic role or team.
