Occupational therapists occupy a position of public trust due to their knowledge and training in a specific field of health. Their ethical and professional responsibility is to provide information and advice that is factual, backed by science and directly related to their professional designation/scope of practice.
This responsibility extends to professional and personal opinions and statements about COVID-19 that are shared with others, including on social media platforms, online and in the media.
In response to concerns about COVID-19 misinformation, COTBC has published a statement. We encourage all registrants to visit our COVID-19 resources web page often for further updates.
