CAOT-BC Practice Networks

CAOT-BC Practice Networks (formerly Special Interest Groups) provide a forum for sharing expertise and experience in occupational therapy in British Columbia in particular areas of professional interest. The networks act as specialist resources to CAOT-BC and assist CAOT-BC to address the needs of members who work in these areas.

Practice Networks provide opportunities for province-wide networking, information exchange, and resource sharing for occupational therapists through meetings, newsletters and document sharing. They promote and facilitate continuing education through informal educational events or conferences and publications.

CAOT-BC Practice Networks are open to all CAOT-BC members. Other regulated professions may be invited from time to time to participate in specific Practice Network events.

CAOT-BC currently supports thirteen Practice Networks and will support members to develop groups in any other areas of professional interest.
