Sustainability Series: Sustainable Occupational Therapy Resource Map
Sustainable Occupational Therapy Practice: Resource Map
Welcome to the OT Susnet Resource Map page. We hope that this page will be useful in providing a general introduction to sustainable healthcare and sustainable occupational therapy practice resources. If you think there are any resources that could be developed and added please get in touch with Niamh Allum or Ben Whittaker.
What is sustainable healthcare?
Sustainable Healthcare can be defined as ‘care delivered in a way that does not adversely affect the health of the population and does not use resources in a way that may compromise the ability of those in the future to provide high quality care to their population or increase the burden of illness’ (Centre of Sustainable Healthcare 2017).
