COT Conference 2012 and my MOHO graphic.

Before you accuse me of misleading you with the title, this does have something to do with the conference. I desperately wanted to go, but alas, I have no money.

However, I received wonderful news from a friend during the one day while I was at work. It seems the MOHO graphic I made was used in a presentation! I was incredibly giddy for a while after finding out, as it means that I was involved in the conference in two ways without actually being there. (I was also a case study in another presentation.)

So this is my little thank you to whoever thought my graphic was national-conference-presentation-worthy!

Models: CMOP and MOHO

I seem to have gathered a little bit of attention with these, so I thought I’d share them if anyone else would find them useful.


The Canadian Model of Occupational Performance (CMOP)

From the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists



The Model of Human Occupation (MOHO)

Originally by Dr. Gary Kielhofner (1980), now under the domain of the MOHO Clearinghouse.

This model didn’t really have a single, easy-to-depict diagram, so I made one!

The image of the girl came from Everything else was made in MS Word by myself, though I want to make sure that it’s clear that I take no credit for the concepts, just putting them into images so that I can use them to study! (I really do hope it’s ok to share these, but if not, I will absolutely delete this post.)

Wow. Busy.

I don’t really know where to start. My days are so busy now, what with being able to finally get on the computer and write notes. The extra time I had the first two weeks at work that could be spent studying are now devoted to writing notes, but I come home in the afternoons/evenings too exhausted to study, or do anything really, so I feel I’m falling behind.

Luckily, my PE says I’m working on a B average already for my competencies, which is pretty good for Week 3 of 10. The only place I’m a bit lacking in is demonstrating my knowledge and understanding of mental health issues, which even I knew was terrible. Therefore, I finally found time to go to the medical library in the hospital grounds and sign up, asking the library assistant to give me a pile of relevant books. I’ve also bought myself the MOHO textbook, as MOHO is heavily used in this setting.

Anyway, now I need to watch a video on safeguarding children that I was supposed to watch ages ago.
