Abstract:

In a climate of economic uncertainty, occupational therapists should consider creative approaches to practice to secure the future of the profession and to offer people alternative routes to access its services. If it is argued that non-traditional practice is becoming a viable choice for occupational therapists, then practice placements must reflect this trend. This opinion piece explores one such non-traditional roleemerging placement at an inner-city charity for children and young people, and how a continuing presence of students has led to a whole-service development.
