As an occupational therapist, you have many responsibilities, which might include:

  • Developing rehabilitation programmes to help people get back to work or education

  • Writing reports and attending case meetings to discuss ongoing treatment
  • Advising on home and workplace alterations for people with special needs such as wheelchairs
  • Helping people get back to work
  • Helping people with social issues or learning difficulties to live as normal a life as possible
  • Liaising with professionals such as doctors and other medical professionals, social workers and specialist equipment suppliers, and patients` families, employers or carers
  • Setting up support and rehabilitation groups
  • Managing the cases of patients

Working as an occupational therapist can mean that you will be working in a number of different settings, such as hospitals, schools and businesses, but also in prisons, healthcare centres and people`s own homes. It can be both physically and mentally challenging, as well as psychologically difficult, and can require a lot of travelling throughout the working day.
