The College published a new set of FAQs regarding the proposed amendments to the Occupational Therapists Regulation.
The FAQs respond to the following questions:
- Why is the regulation changing?
- Will the proposed changes to the regulation impact my scope of practice as an occupational therapist?
- Will the scope of practice of occupational therapists working in mental health be affected if mental health (i.e., psychosocial) is not expressly referenced in the regulation’s definition of occupational therapy?
- Is COTBC responding to the proposed Regulation?
If you have comments on the proposed regulation, we encourage you to respond to the Ministry of Health via PROREGADMIN@gov.bc.ca.
