Title Mapping the future of occupational therapy education in the 21st century: review and analysis of existing Australian competency standards for entry-level Occupational Therapists and their impact on Occupational Therapy curricula across Australia
Abstract/Summary Our Vision is a revised set of competency standards for entry level Occupational Therapists (OT), which reflect contemporary and future Occupational Therapy practice in Australia and are consistent with contemporary philosophy, research, values and theories underpinning professional Occupational Therapy practice. The revision process involving consultation with all national stakeholders will consolidate/affirm the collaborative culture of OT, while recognising the dynamism of the profession in contemporary society. The reviewed competencies will provide national guidelines for responsive reform of OT curricula. Contemporary standards and reformed curricula will enrich learning experiences for OT undergraduate students and make explicit their alignment with professional practice.
