Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Research within the self-perceived state of workplace competence provides areas of necessary growth in the journey of novice OT competency. Continual self-assessment is essential for attaining OT competency and impacts the profession’s role as effective leaders in the complex healthcare system. Analysis of fluctuating competence of current novice OTs provides necessary development tools in the novice OT’s transition to competent practitioner.
