Ep 21: Is AOTA advocating for you? Meet the Team!

Occupational Therapy Advocacy and AOTA Advocacy Efforts and Team



Advocacy is one of my favorite soap boxes to stand on because we as clinicians have a huge responsibility to advocate for the continued and future success of our profession. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am talking about advocacy at the state and federal levels.

In this episode I cover:

  • The primary teams within AOTA (Federal Affairs, Regulatory Affairs, State Affairs, and the Quality Team) that are responsible for advocacy efforts.
  • The types of policies that are handled on the state level vs. the federal level.
  • Our role in advocacy as practicing clinicians.
  • The ways you may already be advocating for OT without even realizing it and how you can use what you’re already doing and apply it in different ways.

You are the expert in OT and the profession needs YOU to continue advocating for it.
