Australian occupational therapy competency standards (AOTCS) 2019

The new Australian occupational therapy competency standards (the competency standards) come into effect from 1 January 2019.

The new competency standards outline the professional behaviours that all occupational therapists should demonstrate to practice. These standards apply to all occupational therapists whether you are working in research, education, management or a role that may not involve direct care.

OT Board of Australia has provided a video for an introduction to these standards.
