The Occupational Therapy Board of Australia has developed codes and guidelines to guide the profession. These also help to clarify the Board’s views and expectations on a range of issues.
Under Section 11 of the National Law, as in force in each state and territory, the Ministerial Council may issue a National Board with policy directions.
All practising occupational therapists must undertake continuing professional development (CPD) as a requirement of registration. Refer to our dedicated CPD information page to find the Guidelines: Continuing professional development for more information about CPD requirements and exemptions, and to access our CPD resources.
The Supervised practice framework sets out the principles the Board considers central to safe and effective supervised practice for a range of regulatory needs.
† The Supervised practice framework was updated in April 2023 to reflect the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia adopting the framework from 1 April 2023.
