Keynote speaker- Dr Angela Benfield

Angela lives in Wisconsin USA. She is an enthusiastic, bubbly person who loves to talk about occupational therapy and how to raise the standards of our profession. Angela completed her Phd in 2015. The topic was “Developing a measure of evidence-informed professional reasoning”. This is a quantitative approach to evidence based practice. She has run several workshops at occupational therapy conferences on this topic eg. The Canadian Occupational Therapy Association National Conference and the AOTA National Conference. She has been collaborating with the Otago Polytechnic study that aims to identify key markers of EBP and to integrate this into the curriculum.

Angela's visit is a wonderful opportunity to get engaged in discussions about how we identify and promote the outcomes of our practice. She is passionate about this! It’s great to see younger members of our profession developing new ideas and challenging us to find ways to make our mark in practice.
