Connections magazine is currently seeking members interested in sharing their learnings, knowledge and experiences. In addition to our regular columns and features, we want Connections to provide a platform for members to tell their occupational therapy story. Perhaps you might share insightful research you collaborated on, a consumer success story or your reflections on your journey as an OT. 

Each edition of the magazine is centred around a common theme. You may have noticed that every article doesn’t always fully align with the given theme, but when they do it helps to connect each separate article in that particular edition. Here is an overview of the themes for the remaining editions for 2019:
