Friday, November 4, 2016 Four Points by Sheraton Norwood MAOT ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2016 "PromOTing Our Distinct Value" Keynote Address: “A Fork in the Road: An Occupational Hazard?” This lecture will explore contemporary evidence based practice in relation to our historical roots and growth as a profession. It will trace our profession’s voyage away from and return to authentic occupation-based therapy. Lessons we have learned and mistakes we have made on this voyage give us the potential to become the art and science driven and evidence-based profession we strive to be. Presented by: Glen Gillen is currently a member of the full-time faculty at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. Glen is best known in the community for his contribution to the literature, the textbooks Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach now going into its fourth edition and Cognitive and Perceptual Rehabilitation: Optimizing Function. He is recently co-edited the 12th edition of Willard & Spackman’s Occupational Therapy. He has over 100 publications including chapters, books, and peer reviewed publications. A past recipient of AOTF’s Award for Clinical Excellence in Rehabilitation and AOTA’s Recognition of Achievement Award, Glen lectures extensively on the local, state, national, and university level regarding multiple topics related to neurorehabilitation. He maintains a clinical caseload working in the areas of acute care and inpatient rehabilitation. Glen was the recipient of the 2012 Eleanor Clarke Slagle Lecture and delivered the lecture in San Diego in 2013. The lectureship honors a member of the AOTA who has creatively contributed to the development of the body of knowledge of the profession through research, education, and/or clinical practice.
