CORECOM is a collaborative initiative to develop a single competency document that will outline entry to practice competencies and describe competencies used throughout occupational therapy practice. The October CORECOM project update is available for viewing here: https://www.corecomcanada.com
Note: CORECOM has consultation sessions about the draft competencies starting on November 23, 2020. Registration for these sessions can be accessed here: https://www.corecomcanada.com/simpl-e-schedule
