Lessons from the Australian context.

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Poster


All accredited university programs must follow the World Federation of Occupational Therapists' Minimum Standards for the Education of Occupational Therapists, ensuring continuity across occupational therapy curricula internationally. A core focus of the educational standards is occupation and its transformative relationship to health. Previous research has highlighted that occupation and occupation-based practice are difficult to consistently implement across all years of an educational program. Little is known about the experiences and opinions of educators about focusing on occupation within curricula.
