The World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) believes that:
WFOT promotes occupational therapy as an art and science internationally. The Federation supports the development, use and practice of occupational therapy worldwide, demonstrating its relevance and contribution to society.
The WFOT Code of Ethics (revised 2005) describes the general categories of appropriate conduct for occupational therapists in any professional circumstance. It is understood that each member association will have a detailed code of ethics particular to its needs.
The WFOT Code of Ethics is available in the General Category of the Resource Centre.
The WFOT ‘Entry Level Competencies for Occupational Therapists (2008)’ identifies a framework for entry-level competencies for the practice of occupational therapy. WFOT promotes the Competencies to assist in the development and promotion of a standard of excellence in occupational therapy practice, and to assist and guide the development and monitoring of occupational therapy practice competencies within WFOT member countries - competencies that are specific to practice in that country.
