OT Week 2022
This year, OT week runs from 24-30 October with World Occupational Therapy Day being held on 27 October 2022.
OT Week is our annual National Week when we celebrate and talk about all things occupational therapy. It enables OTA to shine a light on the amazing work OTs do across the community.The theme for 2022 is “What OT means to me” and provides OTs, their clients, and industry partners with the opportunity to reflect on occupational therapy from their personal perspective.
Why get involved?
The broad theme of “What OT means to me” enables the entire OT community to shine a spotlight on the care and professionalism OTs deliver to their clients and in addition allow clients to talk about the benefits of OT to their health and wellbeing. For example
- OTs can share what OT means to them
- OT Clients can share their experiences with OT and the impact it has had on their lives
- OT industry partners can share what OT means to them and how their work impact Clients and OTs
There are several ways you and your team can get involved in OT Week.
