Dr Lisa Adams and Dr Sara MacDermott talk to Occupational Therapist and Advanced Clinical Practitioner Payal Wilson about the role of occupational therapists in primary care.
She talks about how to become an occupational therapist, the training involved, and how occupational therapists might work in primary care (their remit and the roles they could take on). She also discusses her current career, the advantages of occupational therapists in advanced clinical practitioner roles, and considerations (including supervision) for occupational therapists when working in primary care as part of the additional roles reimbursement scheme (ARRS).
