  • What Wilcock’s mantra ‘doing, being, becoming and belonging’ means to Nick 
  • What occupational justice looks like 
  • How occupational therapists can contribute in addressing the inequalities in health 
  • Reflecting on the concept of “Occupational Therapy Without Borders” 
  • How the use of narrative plays a role in promoting occupational justice  
  • How occupational therapy practitioners are political beings (and what this means) 
  • The power and potential of occupational therapy 

Nick is a senior lecturer in occupational therapy at Sheffield Hallam University. Nick’s teaching concerns social contexts for occupational therapy, community based interventions and underpinning concepts including occupational science and social occupational therapy. He  teaches research methods and interprofessional modules, and has researched, written and presented extensively on a range of topics, particularly community based rehabilitation, critical explorations of occupational therapy as well as mental health, wellbeing and physical exercise. Nick has coedited several landmark occupational therapy texts, notably the Occupational Therapy without Borders books.
