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 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 disabled therapists, and the paper concludes by giving possible explanations and making recommendations to help facilitate this inclusion.
