News from Member Organisations December 2022 - Japan

The 8th Asia Pacific Occupational Therapy Congress 2024 (APOTC 2024) will be held in Sapporo, Japan from November 6th to 9th, 2024. In November, Sapporo is one of the cities where you can feel the richness of nature as the trees change their colors in late autumn. It is also one of the Japan's most scenic tourist destinations, with delicious food and hot springs blessed by nature.

The theme of the Congress in 2024 is “Enabling Collaborative Community: Sustainable and Evidence-Based Occupational Therapy”. In order for occupational therapists to foster the well-being of our clients living in the community, our role is to develop the collaborative community with mutual support by citizens. The key components to enable this goal are to have outcome and support that is sustainable and our judgment and services to be based on evidence.

Please check the congress website and SNS for the latest information on the congress program and call for papers. Please also visit the APOTC Facebook and Instagram page.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Sapporo, 2024!
