A Day In My OT Life: Lessons Learned

published 2 weeks ago by Dr. Frederick B. Covington

One of the most important things that I learned in 2018, especially after conversing with colleagues from around the world at the world federation of occupational therapists conference in South Africa, is that no one entity can define what occupational therapy is.  It can be different things depending upon region, nationality, economic status, and other factors.  I had the chance to see occupational therapy sessions taking place abroad that would not even warrant a second glance where I practice occupational therapy.  So moving forward, with an expanded horizon, I personally strive to not only treat in clinics, schools, and in homes, but actually commit to broader treatment by partnering with other establishments and businesses.  This will not only better the lives of my clients, but promote the profession as well.
