The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA, 2016) has adopted Vision 2025, which builds on the work of the Centennial Vision (AOTA, 2007) to guide the profession beyond 2017.
In 2014, AOTA began a visioning process by retaining McKinley Advisors to solicit and organize input from within the profession and from outside stakeholders. The effort included broad surveys to more than 60,000 members and nonmembers as well as interviews with industry leadership, all in an effort to gain insight on the profession’s challenges, strengths, and potential goals.
McKinley reported the findings at the AOTA Vision Summit in October 2015. The Summit brought together nearly 100 AOTA staff and volunteer participants, who were invited to represent a wide range of age, experience, and diversity and variety of practice settings. Over 2 days, the group reviewed McKinley's research and discussed pertinent societal trends and potential changes shifts in health care. The Summit concluded with defined “essential elements” and three drafts of a possible new vision statement.
