College of Occupational Therapists
While primarily a tool to support occupational therapists and physiotherapists in their practice, this document will also be of interest to students, researchers, service users, commissioners and any others who wish to gain insight into the roles and responsibilities of clinicians in this area.
NICE has accredited the process used by the College of Occupational Therapists to produce its practice guidelines. Accreditation is valid for five years from January 2013 and is applicable to guidance produced using the processes described in the Practice guideline development manual 3rd edition (2017).
