Abstract:International occupational therapy organisations spend time and energy on arranging conferences and meetings for occupational therapists in order to encourage the exchange of ideas and developments. This is essential for the profession and its members; however, the barriers in the form of language, money and time often prevent attendance at such events. All professionals should be looking more at the advantages and doing everything possible to try to attend these events. Evidence-based practice is required in Europe and some evidence may be found there. This opinion piece provides some information about the international occupational therapy organisations in order to motivate readers to find out more from the websites given, to consider sharing knowledge and experience and perhaps to attend the European congress mentioned.
