Standards of Practice in Occupational Therapy are the baseline for quality occupational therapy care, holding OTR and COTA certificants accountable for delivering consistent, high quality health care services. The Standards provide guidelines that can be used to determine what the OTR or COTA should and should not do when providing services to clients. These Standards represent the expectations of NBCOT and may be used to evaluate performance for on-going professional development and/or disciplinary action.
The NBCOT Standards of Practice consist of four sections:
- Practice Domains
- Code of Professional Conduct
