Sustainable development

Occupational therapists’ competence regarding people’s activity patterns, the relationship between activity and health as well as our input in social planning can contribute and make a difference in the pursuit of sustainable development.

The publication Sustainable Development – Occupational Therapy Can Contribute
and Make a Difference (pdf) is meant for occupational therapists and students of Occupational Therapy as well as decision makers and others interested in occupational therapy and sustainable development. The publication is a further, in-depth development of previously published reasoning. Petra Wagman, Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy at the Department of Rehabilitation, School of Health and Welfare, Jönköping University has had the main responsibility for developing the contents.
