Disabled occupational therapists – asset, liability … or ‘watering down’ the profession? - UK

This article describes a small-scale UK study of the experiences of occupational therapists with a disability in who recounted their journeys and provided first-hand accounts of the reality of being a disabled health professional. The findings suggest that there is further work to be done before the profession benefits fully from the inclusion of therapists with a disability, and the paper concludes by giving possible explanations and making recommendations to help facilitate this inclusion. (Disability & Society  29(4): 583-596)
