As the World Federation of Occupational Therapists continues to take a leadership role in the occupational therapy profession and increases its liaison with other international organisations, there is a need to state the position of WFOT on a number of issues that are relevant to the profession and civil society. Position statements provide a platform on which the WFOT can project its stance and reflect its image as a world leader.
Position papers present the official stance of the Federation on a substantive issue or subject. They are developed in response to a particular issue, concern, or need of the Federation and its members and may be written for internal and/or external use. Position papers are adopted by vote through the Council.
New Position Statements are continuously being developed by WFOT expert groups.
The following Position Statements can be accessed from the "Resource Centre > filter resources by category: Position Statements":
