5th Annual UIC OT Scholarship of Practice Day

Friday, March 22, 2019

10:15 AM - 6:00 PM

We invite you to attend the UIC OT Scholarship of Practice Day, where we immerse together in the latest OT theory, education and research so together we can create tomorrow’s practice.

Keynote address: “Activity and participation: the keys to health outcomes” presented by Dr.  Elizabeth R. Skidmore, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, FACRM, Department of Occupational Therapy, University of Pittsburgh

Often, activity and participation are viewed as distal outcomes of health. However, a preponderance of evidence suggests that activity and participation are direct correlates of health, at a minimum, and likely contributors to health. This presentation will provide a new conceptualization of the associations among activity, participation, and health and a “call to action” in occupational therapy education, practice, and research to place activity and participation at the forefront of health and health related discussions.

This event is free to all OT practitioners and community members who support our UIC Scholarship of Practice. OT practitioners who are currently licensed in Illinois can earn up to 6 free continuing education contact hours by attending all activities.
