Emma Gee – OT and Stroke Survivor
As an Occupational Therapist and Stroke Survivor, Emma will relay her own journey to date. She will share her insights as a therapist and her newfound client perspective as a recipient of many of the services and care in managing her own chronic condition. She will draw on her own experience to highlight the importance of improving person-centred practice and adopting a more consumer-driven approach.
The keynote will enable the participants to reflect on their own practices and determine areas that may impact on the ability to be person-centric in their roles. In facilitating the session, Emma will refer to her memoir – “Reinventing Emma” to reinforce her messages. She will ultimately challenge the participants to “really put themselves in another’s shoes” aiming to improve community awareness, education and person-centred care.
