The Importance of Supporting Graduates & Finding a Balance Between Clinical Work & the Business

Principle Occupational Therapist and Owner of Verve OT, Sarah Collison, brings a little verve to the podcast this week to delve into a range of topics surrounding being a leader, balancing clinical and business duties, and the important role of graduate therapists for the allied health industry as a whole.

You’ll hear Sarah discuss making the leap to owning a business after working in a large organisation, including how she brought in a team and developed systems. Listen in for plenty of insights including the value of saying “no”, how to overcome pressures as a leader, trends in the workforce, and why investing in new graduates is crucial for the future of allied health.

Topics covered on leading your own team, having an industry commitment to graduates, and balancing being a clinician and business owner

  • How to overcome the pressure that comes with leading your own team, including how to deal with responsibility, learning from mistakes, and being aware of obligations.
  • Trends she’s noticed in the workforce, including why so many people are dropping out, and the importance of investing in and nurturing graduates. 
  • How she found clinical joy and juggles between loving it, as well as the business side with a commitment to the OT profession.
