The Maine Occupational Therapy Association is actively working to advance the profession of Occupational Therapy in Maine, and help to protect OT from external threats.
Imagine what would happen if reimbursement for our services disappeared. Or, if other healthcare professionals began doing the work OT practitioners are highly qualified to perform? Or, if the profession was locked out of practicing in health and wellness or any emerging practice area where clients can benefit from OT?
As professionals we have an obligation to lifelong learning. Participating and supporting our professional organizations is a basic responsibility to ensure that we are prepared to provide the best care for our clients and to ensure that OT remains a strong, viable profession for those who will need our services in the future.
