Scope of Practice Update

OTA has provided a response to the First Issues Paper released by the Scope of Practice Review, which calls for OTs to be able to make direct referrals to specialists, and order X-rays for hand therapists, enable better employer practices, technologies and funding arrangements to promote multidisciplinary practice and enable OTs to be better utilised in primary health settings.

The response was prepared in consultation with OTA’s Professional Standards committee, and AHPA (Allied Health Professionals Australia). We also attended several roundtable discussions to share our feedback. 

OTA’s initial submission to the scope of practice review is available here.
