This topic has allowed me to consider the different types of communication theories I may encounter as an Occupational Therapist.  Communicating with other health professionals, clients via different channels to ensure the right message is received and understood. Resulting in fewer errors in practice and better relationships with clients and co-workers.  I shall as an occupational therapist consider from now: who am I trying to communicate with? What information and I trying to send? Which channel of delivery is best suited?
