Practice Standards

Holding OTRs and COTAs Accountable

Practice standards in occupational therapy are the baseline for quality occupational therapy care, holding certified OTRs and COTAs accountable for delivering consistent, high-quality healthcare services.

The NBCOT Practice Standards provide guidelines that can help certified OTRs and COTAs determine what they should and should not do when providing services to clients. These Standards represent the expectations of NBCOT and may be used to evaluate performance for ongoing professional development and/or disciplinary action.
