Is there a World Occupational Therapy Day, and if so when is it?

World Occupational Therapy Day is celebrated on 27 October.

World Occupational Therapy Day is an opportunity to increase the visibility of the profession and promote the activities of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) nationally and internationally. 

Many WFOT Member Organisations hold an occupational therapy day/week or month in October each year, so it was agreed that World Occupational Therapy Day be held on 27th October every year. 

Recognising that this date may not be suitable to everyone, the event can be scheduled to suit local time frames.

See Resource Centre, World Occupational Therapy Day section, for more information.
