Occupation-Focused practice

Abstract

The opinion piece published in the January issue (Gillen and Greber 2014) highlights the multi-faceted challenges of implementing occupation-focused practice. We would like to highlight an additional layer of complexity: challenges
faced by students on practice education and new graduates entering the profession. As the authors proposed in their ‘strategy 3’, students, and by extension new graduates, have been exposed to the latest occupational therapy theory. In our opinion, the latest theories need also to be embraced by experienced therapists in the workplace.
