OT-Europe Workshops (Pre-Conference Workshops of the 2nd COTEC-ENOTHE Congress 2021)


Dear members, colleagues, authors and participants,

The Scientific Committee is very pleased to announce that the workshop leaders of the OT-Europe workshops have managed to plan great sessions towards the congress.

The themes of the workshops are very relevant to the overarching theme on resilience and reflect the contemporary ‘state of the art’ expertise in Occupational Therapy research, education and practice. Workshop leaders have been asked the difficult task and effort to merge several abstracts into a joint session, deepening the theme.

The program is as follows:

OT-Europe Workshop Interdisciplinary Delirium

  • 8thJuly; Thursday ; 16:00 – 18:00 CET
  • Lead: Dr. Christian Pozzi (SUPSI – University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland)

OT-Europe Workshop E-Health

  • 31stAugust; Tuesday; 15:00CET
  • Lead: Dr. Susanne Guidetti (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm)

OT-Europe Workshop Health Literacy

  • 1stSeptember; Wednesday ; 15:00 – 18:00 CET
  • Lead: Eva Denysiuk (COTEC)

OT-Europe Workshop School-Based OT

  • 9thSeptember; Thursday ; 15.00 – 18.00 CET
  • Lead: Dr. Debbie Kramer-Roy (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences)

OT-Europe Workshop Displaced Persons

  • 10th  September 2021; Friday ; 16:00 – 19:00 CET
  • Lead: MS. Nadine Blankvoort (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences)

The pre-congress OT-Europe workshops have limited capacity and only registered participants of the congress can sign-up and participate (for free). So please, if you are interested, register for the conference first here and subsequently register for the workshops here. Since the workshops are organised and hosted by ENOTHE and COTEC, their platforms (Teams or Zoom) will be used to stream the events.

With these workshops, Occupational Therapy Europe makes a first, but important step towards the celebration of the register of experts. During the virtual congress there will be an OT-Europe Expert session in which the outcome of the workshops will be summarized and shared and next steps will be taken to let these areas develop in the congress, after the congress and even more in the future.

Find the congress programme HERE.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact: cotec-enothe2020@oteurope.eu

There are great online exhibit possibilities for sponsors, so do not forget to check out the new Prospectus on the congress website and spread the word. Follow the updates and deadlines closely on the conference website.

On behalf of both boards, the Organising and Scientific Committees we wish you all the best for now and are looking very much forward to meet you all online!

WE GO VIRTUAL! – 2nd COTEC-ENOTHE Congress 2021

Dear Colleagues,
We hope that you, your family, colleagues and friends are safe during these challenging times.
After careful consideration of the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Organizing Comm­ittee decided to hold the COTEC-ENOTHE Congress 2021 as a fully virtual congress. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the situation for international travel remains difficult and planning includes significant uncertainty.
The virtual congress will be held as planned on the originally scheduled dates of September 15–18, 2021.
The virtual format will combine live streams, exhibitions and Q&A sessions during short and man­age­able time slots to facilitate real time exchange with and within the international audience.
With our best regards and hoping to meet all of you during our virtual COTEC-ENOTHE 2021!
Stay tuned and stay safe!
With kind regards

New Year’s wishes ENOTHE

We have seen that quality of OT education, the strength of fieldwork, innovation of blended learning and inclusiveness are of great importance for students, lecturers and our network. Due to the commitment of members in projects, initiatives, newsletter contributions ENOTHE can continue her mission and the board and office are keen on working further on a sustainable network organization fit for future generations. Keep track of our posts, tweets, mails and calendar, because lots of good and informative activities are coming up this year.

Starting off with the below promotional video : a homemade collection of testimonials showing what ENOTHE means to members and brings to them.
