Differences in OT internationally


Hi, I am beginning a research project for my masters on international occupational therapy- specifically the differences in practice between various countries. To begin, I am looking for peer reviewed articles that begin to show the differences in practice. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi nicolegal16,


Not sure where you reached in your project! I don't have articles, but I thought maybe I can share some publications about OT in Jordan. I would encourage you contact the authors as they have great experience in the middle east region and they may provide more resources:








I personally worked in Jordan and Saudi Arabia, then continued my graduate degree in Australia before I reside in Canada. So, let me know if I can be of any further assistance!


Best wishes!

  • Hi All, I’m in a lovely position of setting up a new service. I’m looking at outcomes. I would really value your views and experiences of different outcome measures. Especially if in a Social Care or Intermediate Care Setting. Thanks in advance!
  • I have a question with regards to older people (65+) sleeping in their riser recliners (RR). I have a service user who sleeps in his RR out of choice. He has a perfectly good bed which he can get in and out of very well. But choses to sleep in his chair, he says he sleeps well and is happy with it. What are the most common issues/concerns about sleeping in a RR? I was thinking pressures needs & postural concerns.....What can you share with me?
  • Are you a Canadian occupational therapist? Are you celebrating the OT month? Tell us how you/ your employer are promoting the profession in October and share any special events!
