posted: Thursday, October 15, 2009
October 15, 2009 (Ottawa, ON) - The Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) is pleased to present members with the new benefit of access to the Journal of Occupational Science (JOS) and The New Zealand Journal of Occupational Therapy.
The Journal of Occupational Science (JOS), a joint publication from the University of South Australia, the University of Southern California, and the Auckland University of Technology, is an International Peer reviewed journal committed to topical dialogue of the emerging discipline of occupational science giving voice to the unique experiences, concerns and perspectives of the study of humans as occupational beings.
The New Zealand Journal of Occupational Therapy also has a wealth of information to offer members. It is dedicated to the publication of high quality national and international articles that are grounded in practice. They invite practitioners, researchers, teachers, students and users of services to submit manuscripts that provide a forum to discuss or debate issues relevant to occupational therapy.
CAOT Executive Director, Claudia von Zweck, is pleased to be forming new partnerships that capitalize on opportunity and provide a larger resource base for members. CAOTs online journals are one of the most sought after member benefits and act as a useful guide and resource for many practicing and aspiring occupational therapists.
“It is important that our members keep up to date with the latest research, issues and trends in occupational therapy,” says Dr. von Zweck. “As a strategic priority, CAOT promotes evidence-based occupational therapy which is accomplished in part by providing our members with important research journals like JOS and NZJOT.”
CAOT publishes a variety of textbooks, workbooks and other learning materials on a regular basis to help advance the knowledge of occupational therapy across Canada and internationally.
