This site aims to serve as a tool for occupational therapy and occupational science practitioners, researchers, students and educators who are aiming to work with displaced persons in their specific countries.
In May 2017, during the ENOTHE-COTEC conference in Galway, Ireland, it was recognized that there was a need to build a network of OT's in Europe who are interested in working with displaced persons. This site aims to contribute to this next by providing a map and description of current practice examples, a report and position paper of OT in Europe with displaced persons, discussion forums and resources for researchers, practitioners, students and educators.
