Bio/Background of the Speakers:

ConnOTA community of practice members are OT practitioners who are actively working in home care, who have worked in home care, or are seeking to work in home care.  Members bring their expertise and skillset as well as questions and a strong desire to use social learning theory to learn, share, and pool knowledge.


Learning Objectives Attendees Should Achieve:

This hour-long presentation and discussion will allow participants to:

  1. Participants will analyze frameworks they can use to determine smart home technology options to trial with clients including a discussion of ethical considerations.
  2. Participants will review current products on the market designed to promote independence, safety, and improvements in quality of life. 

Summary of Event:

Occupational therapy strives to improve clients’ quality of life, independence, and safety at home, and has a valuable role in using smart technology to support clients in successfully completing their daily occupations. Smart technology can be beneficial to a variety of clients, despite differing ages and contexts. Occupational Therapists can support the client in identifying available technology options to trial to find the best fit, and then continue to support the use of the device and build smart technology into existing routines. Technology is always evolving with ample opportunities for mainstreamed options that can be easily accessible to clients.


This event is sponsored by Connecticut occupational therapy practitioners. ConnOTA is supporting this event by overseeing the award of CEUs for registered participants.
