Occupational therapy: working with displaced persons

WFOT is pleased to announce the official launch of the new online course Occupational Therapy: Working with Displaced Persons on the WFOT Learning platform.

The course is designed for occupational therapists, assistants and students, but it may also benefit other professionals working with refugees and displaced persons. The duration is 35 hours and all sections are self-contained so you can complete them in your own time. This is anytime, anywhere learning to suit your work and life that you can access by desktop/ laptop, mobile and tablet devices. In this course you step into the shoes of displaced persons and occupational therapists through their stories and the immersive experience of virtual reality.

Participants will need to create an account on WFOT Learning and sign up for the course. While the course is offered for free, WFOT encourages participants to make a financial donation. Donations enable WFOT to develop learning resources for the benefit of the global community.
