Description Poster #1
Simulation-based learning is growing within OT education. Debriefing following simulation or client interaction during fieldwork has the potential to enhance students’ clinical reasoning and self-reflection. Debriefing strategies can vary across settings, often being influenced by time allowance. By exploring strategies, educators can select the most appropriate approach to use with their students.

Description Poster #2
The impact of concussion on college student athletes was explored through the lens of academic self-efficacy. Participants with concussion showed significantly lower self-efficacy in one area of academic performance (note-taking), which directly impacts perceived identity and occupational engagement. Participants highlighted the complexity of concussion rehabilitation and the gaps that exist during the recovery process as they attempt to maintain their roles of college student and athlete.

The aim of this broad qualitative study was to determine the utility and validity of the OCIA in mental-health settings. Thematic analysis of interviews reported themes of usefulness in clinical practice, suitable environments for tool use, educational use for students and healthcare professionals, training module revisions, and continual modifications.

Description Poster #4
Presently, minority groups and low-income groups are inadequately represented in healthcare and health-related research. While the healthcare fields have made some advancements, health disparities continue to exist among marginalized communities. Therefore, researchers in a pro bono, student-led clinic performed a qualitative study to find effective and culturally relevant recruitment strategies to create a more diverse and inclusive environment that dually benefits clients and students.

In this session, the speaker will explore the Assistive Technology Course she has taught to OT students since 2011. This will include key concepts the course focuses on, strategies used to increase student engagement, student feedback received, lessons learned, and overall suggestions. Strategies and suggestions from participants will also be requested and discussed, and an opportunity to brainstorm ideas will be provided.
