The OT Europe Interest group is happy to announce that three documents have been published to the website which the group has been working on over the last year. We have published a report on current practice examples of OT with displaced persons in Europe, a call-to-action document and a template position paper. These documents can be found here and also can be found on the OT-Europe website.
ENOTHE and the OT Europe Interest Group Displaced Persons, invites you to explore their website as it aims to serve as a tool for occupational therapy and occupational science practitioners, researchers, students and educators who are aiming to work with displaced persons in their specific countries.
The ENOTHE meeting is held each year at a different institution in a different European country. It is an opportunity to raise the profile of your Occupational Therapy programme/s at both a local and national level.
If you are interested you will need authorisation from your head of the institution.

The 23rd ENOTHE Annual Meeting took place on 26th – 28th October 2017 and was hosted by the Croatian Association of Occupational Therapists (H.U.R.T.), at the Hotel Panorama, Zagreb, Croatia.
Over 300 delegates took part in presentations, workshops, seminars, posters and social events that took place during the event. In 2017 134 abstracts were accepted for the 23rd Annual Meeting making this one of the best attended over the last five years.
Thank you to Saša Radić and the Croatian Association of Occupational Therapists for all their great work behind the scenes before and during the conference. The contributions of the organising committee and the volunteers (made up of local students, teachers and clinical practitioners) added so much to the smooth running of the whole occasion. In addition, the handmade delegate bags were very special and appreciated by all the participants.
