OT-Europe Interest Group Displaced Persons

In May 2016, during the ENOTHE-COTEC conference in Galway, Ireland, it was recognized that there was a need to build a network of OT’s in Europe who are interested in working with displaced persons.

This group has developed a website 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 aim is to contribute to this next by:

  • providing a map and description of current practice examples,
  • a report and position paper of OT in Europe with displaced persons,
  • discussion forums,
  • resources for researchers, practitioners, students and educators.
