Occupational Therapists

Christopher McKenna, Cath Wright

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The aim of this chapter is to establish the purpose and meaning of interprofessional working from the point of view of the occupational therapist, as a student or whether they work in practice, research or academia. We will look at the origins of interprofessional learning within occupational therapy philosophy and history, as well as considering the current and future direction of services indicated by the College of Occupational Therapists. The links to the personal skills and qualities required for an individual to actively participate in interprofessional working are discussed critically and ideas for personal development are presented.
