The World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) Bulletin, published by Taylor & Francis since 2015, biannually in April and October, has been the official publication of the WFOT.
Advances in technology and new ways of communicating have enabled WFOT to consider different ways to meet the original aims of the Bulletin, being to promote awareness and understanding of the WFOT and its activities and services, the development of the occupational therapy profession worldwide, and the international exchange of professional knowledge and experience.
At the Council Meeting 2022 held in Paris, in consideration of the above, the WFOT Council voted to discontinue its agreement with Taylor & Francis in 2024. This will provide opportunity for WFOT to invest in other forms of communication that better meet the needs of the Federation and the occupational therapy community. As a result of this decision, new submissions for publication in the Bulletin have been suspended from the 1st December 2022. More information about the discontinuation of the WFOT Bulletin can be found in the dedicated FAQ page.
All the past issues of the WFOT Bulletin will continue to be available to WFOT Individual Members for free access, with themed issues that included but were not limited to disaster response, human rights and health, assistive technology and information technology services, mental health service development, and healthy ageing.
