Occupational Therapy

The Occupational Therapy PSP was launched in 2019 to bring together people with experience of accessing occupational therapy services, their carers, occupational therapists and others working in health and social care to shape the future of occupational therapy research. The PSP was led by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT).

The Occupational Therapy PSP Top 10 was published in July 2020.


Watch Dr Jo Watson, Assistant Director - Education and Research, Royal College of Occupational Therapists, talk about why these priorities are so important for setting the future direction of research for occupational therapy in the UK.
