Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This systematic review examined OTs’ practices at the community level by locating and appraising current research evidence and describing practice roles and opportunities. Internationally, OTs practice with communities in diverse settings to improve community-level health, well-being, and inclusion. Practice can be strengthened through advocacy, education, and policy change, as well as rigorous research that defines community and describes community engagement.
