Occupational Therapist: Jo Garvie

Area of practice: Acute Occupational Therapy service

Number of years working as an O.T.: 26 years

What I love about acute OT: 2016 is my 10 year anniversary of working as an OT in the acute services at St Vincent’s. This has given me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of patients and fantastic health care professionals across all of the acute units.

I love the challenge of working with patients on returning to the activities that they want to do as part of their daily life.

In particular, it has been a privilege of late to work with the patients and staff on the Palliative Care and Oncology/Haematology Units and to develop my OT skills in providing patient-centred care within a Palliative Care approach.
