Professional Resources

BAOT/COT provides resources relating to different areas of occupational therapy practice and to support professional development.

This section provides a range of practice and CPD resources to support your journey from student, to new graduate and consultant OT.
The Areas of Practice section contains detailed information on long-term conditions; mental health; older people; children, young people and families; and personalisation. The information included in these sections will be of interest to service commissioners as well as occupational therapists.
These professional resources support the development of knowledge, skills and behaviours that promote and protect the wellbeing of service users, their carers, and the reputation of employers and the profession.
BAOT members also have access to a dedicated professional enquiries service and a wide range of industrial relation services provided by UNISON.
