Promoting the Profession
Occupational Therapy Australia undertakes regular promotional activities aimed at the wider community, potential stakeholders and potential occupational therapists. We strive to promote the benefits of participation in the occupational therapy profession, or engaging the services of an occupational therapist.
One way we do this is by accepting invitations to provide representatives to careers days and conference/event trade stands. We also host educational events at relevant exhibitions, such as the Annual Carex Expo, aimed at the ageing population and their carers. We accept volunteer help from our members to deliver our pre-prepared presentations and promotional material.
Where relevant, we invite member occupational therapy practitioners to provide promotional material for us to promote their particular services at these events.
