On 20 February 2018 the Board published the new Australian occupational therapy competency standards (the competency standards) which take effect from 1 January 2019.

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