Occupational Therapy Day


We are proud to announce that Te Wiki o Te Whakaora Ngangahau 2018 (Occupational Therapy Week 2018) is Whakaora Ngangahau “Te Umanga Mahi” / Occupational Therapy “the doing profession”

To help celebrate Occupational Therapy Week, 22-26th October 2018, and World Occupational Therapy day on 27th October 2018, a toolkit and resources has been developed by Occupational Therapy New Zealand Whakaora Ngangahau Aotearoa (OTNZ-WNA), to equip our Occupational Therapists from around the country to reach out to colleagues, communities, and the general public to help showcase some of the wonderful work they do.

On a daily basis, occupational therapists assist people to improve their well-being and quality of life. They treat injured, ill or disabled patients through the therapeutic use of everyday activities and help these patients develop, recover and improve the skills needed for daily living and working. Most people are unaware just how diverse occupational therapists are.

OTNZ-WNA: OTNZ-WNA is the professional association for occupational therapists in New Zealand.
