Awareness Day at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital

Report on Baragwanath Chris Hani Hospital Occupational Therapy Exposition

 

NBASA was invited to participate in the exposition held at Bara on Tuesday 29th September 2015. We saw this as an opportunity to create awareness of the organisation to the OT’s and others present and to educate them on burns prevention.I set up a presentation table and was available to the attendees between the presentations and at lunch and tea time.I estimate there were 120 attendees on the day. I spoke to OT’s and networked with them stressing the fact that they were welcome to refer any burn survivors they came across to NBASA for registration.Professor Patricia de Witt was the facilitator of the expo and upon discussion with her she agreed there is a great potential for us to partner in the future, particularly in the academic writing up and publication of our work.
