Abstract

CAOT endorses the inclusion of support personnel in the delivery of occupational therapy services. It is recognized that a wide range of roles and responsibilities exist for support personnel which will meet the objectives of future health and social service delivery undertaken by health care reform. Careful elaboration and clarification of roles, accountability, supervision requirements as well as nationally developed standards for training of support personnel will facilitate responsible deployment and integration of support personnel in the health labour force.
