This day, endorsed by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT), champions the mission of occupational therapy. The WFOT, representing a network of 107 national occupational therapy organizations, serves as the international voice for the profession. On World Occupational Therapy Day, we seize the opportunity to enhance the visibility of the profession and honor the WFOT's local, national, and international activities.
This year's theme, "Unity through Community", encapsulates the essence of occupational therapy. As professionals, we understand the significance of community and collaboration. Occupational therapists worldwide work hand in hand with various groups and communities to foster participation and inclusive interaction, ensuring that individuals, regardless of their challenges, are integrated into the fabric of society.
At Excelin, our occupational therapy team embodies the spirit of this theme. They tirelessly collaborate with various partners, both within and outside the health sector, to ensure our patients receive comprehensive care. The journey to recovery, rehabilitation, or even simple daily functioning can be challenging. Our therapists, with their unwavering commitment, make this journey a little easier, a little more hopeful, and a lot more empowering.
Another noteworthy initiative we're excited about is the Occupational Therapy Global Day of Service (OTGDS). Scheduled for October 27th, 2023, this initiative encourages occupational therapy practitioners and students to volunteer their services to individuals or organizations. The beauty of this service is its diverse nature – from direct actions to providing free professional, creative, and organizational services, there's a myriad of ways to make a difference.
At Excelin, we're wholeheartedly supporting the OTGDS. Not only does it offer a unique platform to spread kindness, but it also fosters global unity among occupational therapy practitioners.
For those keen on participating or spreading awareness, WFOT provides a plethora of resources. Join the Occupational Therapy International Online Network (OTION) to connect with peers worldwide and share insights.
We'd like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our occupational therapy team. Your commitment, expertise, and compassion are truly unparalleled. Together, let's continue to champion the cause of occupational therapy and make a difference, one patient at a time.
To our readers, we invite you to celebrate with us, spread the word, and if you can, offer a service. Because, in unity and community, we find strength, purpose, and hope.
