Speaker: Kristina Krsiak, OTD, OTR/L

Kristina Krsiak has been working with adults/older adults since 2009. She has worked in skilled nursing and homecare and is part-time faculty at Quinnipiac University. She also volunteers for ConnOTA as the Treasurer.

Her passion is working with older adults and promoting quality of life within this population. She is committed to assisting older adults live their best life in which ever setting they reside and helping family members and caregiver feel confident in assisting loved ones. She also enjoys passing along her knowledge to future occupational therapists especially in the area of older adult rehab.

Learning Objectives Attendees Should Achieve:

1. Participants will learn about ways to maximize their time related to managing their daily homecare responsibilities.

2. Participants will share their own resources and experiences with their planning their day and tasks in homecare.

3. Community of Practice members will pool their collective knowledge to develop a practical resource for how we can maximize our time and be efficient in planning our daily homecare tasks in order to promote work-life balance

Summary of Event: (500 Character Count Max)

This Home Care Community of Practice will bring together Connecticut home care occupational therapy practitioners to focus on addressing the feelings of isolation we are experiencing, especially in these times of the Covid 19 pandemic.  Using the principles of social learning theory adopted by theorists such as Etienne Wenger, participants will intentionally learn, pool knowledge, and share resources to better our practice. This event is sponsored by Connecticut occupational therapy practitioners. ConnOTA is supporting this event by overseeing the award of CEUs for registered participants.
