World Occupational Therapy Day

 

Today is World Occupational Therapy (OT) Day – an international celebration of OTs and the amazing work they do.

World OT Day was first launched on 27 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.

This year’s theme, Opportunity + Choice = Justice, promotes how occupational therapy affords greater opportunity and choice to promote a more open and just society.

To mark World Occupational Therapy Day, some of our fabulous OTs have recorded these video messages in which they talk about their roles and why they love what they do.
