Celebrating Occupational Therapy month
This year, I joined the OT Month Committee at my hospital to see what kind of ideas we could come up with to spread the word about OT. In past years, we had a booth set up near the cafeteria, but few people stopped to look at what was being presented at the booth. Since we wanted to reach out to a larger group of people, we decided to send out an all-user email.
In the email, we talked about how April is occupational therapy month and we had a link to an online quiz inviting people to test their knowledge about occupational therapy. Additionally, we offered a $20 giftcard as an incentive for people to take the quiz.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that a total of 67 people had successfully completed the quiz! There were plenty of wrong answers, but the fact that people took the time to try the quiz shows that we helped spread the word. As an added fun tidbit, one of the questions we asked was for people to name an occupational therapist that they knew. Many people left that last question blank, but it was interesting to see which therapists got mentioned.
Here are the questions from the quiz:
To celebrate Occupational Therapy Month, here is a short quiz to test your knowledge about some of the things occupational therapists do.
