This group was established in April 2007 as a result of the rigorous discussions among the occupational therapists working in the region (Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, and Lebanon) and the executive team of the WFOT in Cairo\Egypt.
In this group we aim to establish communication channels between the occupational therapists in the region and the world and to work as a connection with the WFOT and other OT organizations.
We are looking to have a data base for occupational therapy practice in the Middle East in the different languages (Arabic, English and French), also to develop standards for practice and education, and finally to instigate research activities. Publishing a newsletter or maybe a bulletin, initiating a website on the internet and sharing information and experiences will be other goals of the group.
For the sake of making this project come true, all feedback, participation and help will be considered and appreciated.
