About me

I work as an Occupational Therapist in the UK. I currently work on a self-employed basis, examining the possibilities provided by digital tools and technologies in healthcare.

I am interested in using new media opportunities to enhance my practice, and using this space to muse on how these new opportunities impact on healthcare paractice. I am interested to see how developments in digital technology and web 2.0 are going to provide challenges and opportunities to us over the coming years.

I am a social entrepreneur, developing socially minded start-up businesses  to meet the needs of the people we work with in innovative ways.  These startups use principles of co-production. If you would like to know more please do get in touch.

I offer training, coaching and mentoring in developing capacity to deliver your strategic outcomes using digital technologies and social media, which can be delivered face-to-face, over video link or through materials provided by me.

    Would you be interested in contributing to http://camelshump.co.uk at all?
    We have a team of writers covering art, music, rants, books, parenting, opinion, politics and food, and there is no pressure to write on a regular basis. We accept reposts as well as new writing, and we have a very clear and fair writers policy, which you can read on our website.

    Just get in touch if you have any questions :)

    I found your blog via p2p foundation as I was googling for people interested in Health Commons. Following 12 seminars in 12 days in May 2012, 7 working groups self-organised and have a virtual home on http://commonsrising.ning.com/. My profile is here http://commonsrising.ning.com/profile/AnnaBetz?xg_source=profiles_memberList and if you scroll down you find a list of links related to health commons.
    We would be delighted to have you on pour group. http://commonsrising.ning.com/group/commons-of-health-and-well-being
    warm regards from Anna

I'm an OT called Claire. I write about health, particularly mental health, and also about Social Media and Web 2.0 technology. I am particularly interested where these two fields overlap.
I believe that we all hold the potential for Recovery- let's grow together.
