Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists

Occupational Therapy Now

Occupational Therapy Now is the Association's practice magazine and is published six times a year. Occupational Therapy Now provides occupational therapists with information to meet the challenges of their day-to-day practice. Articles in both print and on-line versions encourage discussion and debate of occupational therapy issues. Topics include clinical applications of recent research and theory, evidence-based practice, product reviews, socio-cultural, political and economic influences on occupational therapy as well as other information relevant to the profession at large. Articles appeal to anyone with an interest in occupation and its impact on health: health care practitioners, consumers, policy and decision makers and members of the general public from around the world.

Occupational Therapy Now is available in English and French.
