Abstract/Summary This scoping investigation was undertaken to provide the basis for future directions, practice and scholarship within Occupational Therapy (OT) university education. The investigation comprised three key tasks. First, the conduct of a comprehensive literature review to benchmark the OT Competency Standards with contemporary standards of practice, internationally and nationally, within and across disciplines. Second, an online survey directed to key representatives sufficiently familiar with the document to provide informed comment. Third, conducting a national series of focus groups to solicit perspectives from members of the professional community, who represented a diverse range of practice areas, work settings and professional roles. The outcomes of the analyses from these three tasks are presented as a final list of recommendations. The project provides: lessons of value to other initiatives; reflections on the state of the OT discipline, and an evaluation of outcomes from stakeholder feedback.
