Abstract

The view that the profession of occupational therapy will flourish in the 21st century was expressed before the banking system and financial market collapse in 2008. The profession now competes for scarce resources as austerity measures take effect. A summit meeting at the College of Occupational Therapists, in May 2013, discussed how to improve the profession's understanding and use of health economics. At this meeting, short-, medium-, and longer-term approaches were discussed, with the aim of improving the quality and quantity of publications on economic evaluations in occupational therapy. Despite an increasing number of publications on health economics across professions, occupational therapy lags behind. This focus is now vital for the profession.
