" to communicate effectively and sensitively with clients and carers"

"...highly skilled in completing detailed assessments"

Sally O'Connell Occupational Therapist Harrogate

Occupational Therapist
Yorkshire areas

I am an occupational therapist with over 15 years’ experience working predominantly in neurology. I am highly skilled in completing detailed assessments with clients using a variety of approaches, aiming to optimise function in meaningful activities and promote quality of life. I am a highly motivated, confident individual with exceptional multi-tasking and organisational skills, as well as having creative problem solving skills. I am able to communicate effectively and sensitively with clients and carers, and demonstrate the ability to work closely with other health and social care professionals to assess a client's needs and devise suitable goal-orientated interventions.

In my career to date, I have been responsible for managing and leading clinical teams, as well as managing my own complex clinical case-load of inpatients and outpatients, providing a high standard of occupational therapy service to clients in hospital, community and domiciliary environments. I evaluate, plan and deliver goal-orientated treatment plans in response to complex needs, and I work closely with family and carers accordingly. I have experience of ward rounds, multi-disciplinary meetings and case conferences cross agency and cross sector, and have extensive experience of supervising and teaching other clinicians, therapy assistants and students.

I am highly specialist in devising and implementing behavioural management plans, cognitive and physical assessment and rehabilitation, including vocational rehabilitation. I have extensive experience of seating and positioning, standardised assessments, assistive technology and other specialist equipment. I also contribute to ongoing clinical research studies and have been the clinical lead for the Motor Neurone Disease team as well as for neurological splinting.
