Our vision

The vision is based on three distinct objectives:

  • an occupational therapy perspective; development of the occupational therapy profession and working conditions and being a pro-active union.
  • Knowledge-based occupational therapy is to be a recognized pathway towards an equitable and sustainable society. The world around is to see that occupational therapists, regardless of where they carry out their work, enable people’s everyday lives to function.
  • Occupational therapists are to have sustainable working lives with sound competence and positive salary developments.
