CAOT Professional Issue Forums (PIFs)

Each year at the CAOT Conference, Professional Issue Forums are presented to address priority health and social issues, and emerging practice areas in occupational therapy.  The PIFS allow CAOT to consult with occupational therapists and stakeholders to inform the development of recommended actions to address the particular subject area. Occupational therapists and stakeholders are encouraged to review the PIF summary reports and to consider incorporating the call(s) to action into their practice.
