The D.Y.Patil School of Occupational Therapy, celebrated World OT day on 27th October 2017 with the theme of Inform, Inspire, Influence.
We conducted free back care camp in D.Y.Patil Hospital, Nerul, Navi Mumbai, specially for the hospital workers and for the people who can have back problems because of their Occupation and associated hazards, but are not aware of it and can not afford to take treatment. The cleaning staff from hospital, Rickshaw walas, vegetable sellers took the advantage of this camp. Assessment was done for each and exercises were suggested. Ergonomic advise was given and they were made aware of the techniques of energy conservation. Pamphlets were given to them regarding ergonomic advice..
The camp was a huge success as it inspired our students to take part in community rehabilitation, Influenced people of the society and information was given regarding the role of OT.
