The role of the occupational therapist in brain injury: how our associates help

The role of the occupational therapist in brain injury rehabilitation is an important one. As LSOT’s business and geographic coverage has grown, we have developed a team of associate OTs who specialise in occupational therapy and neurology.

This team helps manage all our neuro occupational therapy programmes. It also ensures we have the capacity in-house to treat other areas of the recovery process, for example upper limb splinting.

The focus is on quality not quantity. Our independent occupational therapists are highly-skilled with over 10 years’ experience in various disciplines.

Laura oversees the role of the occupational therapist in all brain injury programmes. This ensures LSOT’s treatment is effective and coordinated with other professionals who may be involved in a case.

It also means Laura can act as a consultant should complex issues arise. Furthermore, this approach provides continuity of care for patients during staff annual leave and so on.
