Introduction to Occupational Therapy - OTAH101

Why is this important to you?

Occupational therapy is practical. By keeping up to date with the literature you may discover:

  • new therapeutic interventions
  • new tools that you have not used before
  • what other OTs and OTAs are doing in their practice
  • how certain populations respond to certain treatments and interventions
  • a gap in the research where you might fit in!

Occupational therapy journals:

"The American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT), an official publication of the American Occupational Therapy Association, Inc., is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on research, practice, and health care issues in the field of occupational therapy and is the premiere journal for occupational therapy research." (https://www.aota.org/Publications-News/AmericanJournalOfOccupationalTherapy.aspx)

"OT Practice® covers all aspects of occupational therapy practice today. Articles include everything from practice trends and hands-on techniques to policy updates, career advice and job opportunities, and the latest professional news." (https://www.aota.org/Publications-News/otp.aspx)
