This new accolade aims to honour and showcase an occupational therapist who has made outstanding, innovative, and impactful contribution to the clinical practice of occupational therapy.

The inaugural recipient will present a keynote address at OT Exchange 2024, presenting their interpretation of innovation in occupational therapy practice. The OTA Oration is awarded by the OTA Board, in recognition of innovation in the Australian occupational therapy profession.

The OTA Oration will be run biannually, aligned with the OT Exchange Conference. We are delighted to announce that 2023-2024 is the first time the OTA Oration will be conferred and applications are now open for the inaugural OT Exchange Oration.

The successful applicant will present a 45-minute oration at the OT Exchange in 2024, and will have their conference travel, registration and accommodation expenses covered.
