Happy World OT Day!
Today is World OT Day! Occupational Therapy Day was first launched on 27th October 2010 by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT). Since then, it has become an important date in the occupational therapy calendar to promote and celebrate the profession internationally.
ACOT Council and committees have been working diligently since 2020 on the AARI Final Report and recommendations. Council President, Jennifer Lee, speaks to celebrating all that Occupational Therapists do to promote equity and culturally safer practice.
