The Research & Education Special Interest Section (SIS) of the Michigan Occupational Therapy Association is designed to support and meet the needs of occupational therapy practitioners. Guided by the AOTA research agenda, the SIS will provide a format for educators, emerging therapists, and experienced practitioners to collaborate to identify opportunities for improving and expanding occupational therapy services and identifying the positive impact for our clients.
The group will provide opportunities for networking, collaboration, sharing information, advocacy, and continuing education. Participation can include identification of practice challenges which would benefit from further research, learning about and implementing ideas generated from ongoing academic research, locally and nationally, collaboration in field research, and discussion of interdisciplinary research opportunities.
Meetings will be quarterly, held virtually and hosted by SIS Co-chairs. Meeting time will be the 2nd Mondays of March, July, October and December.
