Calls for Abstracts/Presentation Proposals

Occupational therapists are encouraged to share their expertise, best practices and research findings. Presenting our programs, best practices, outcomes and the evidence behind what we do is an important way to promote OT and to contribute to the skill development of other OTs!

Consider OSOT Tips for Writing a Successful Abstract as a resource in preparing your abstract.  Pay careful attention to individual program abstract requirements.
