Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

A guidepost of Vision 2025, OT is influential in changing policies, environments, and complex systems, and the profession needs to hone leadership skills amid students and practitioners. Students’ perceptions of leadership abilities were evaluated for leadership themes. Thoughts of needing years of experience and being granted permission to lead were among the included themes. Leadership is an important issue for the profession as a whole.
