Scientific Program – Day 1

The first of four Congress Keynote addresses was delivered on Day 1, following the Opening Ceremony.

Dr Sohail Inayatullah, widely regarded as one of the world's leading researchers on the future, presented a fascinating exploration of the alternative futures facing occupational therapy, based on the various discourses such as biomedical, rehabilitation, political and the emerging ecological and spiritual discourses.

The presentation offered a range of the alternatives in breadth and depth, as they related to the futures of occupational therapy, and provided a stimulating and thought provoking start to the Congress Scientific Program.

DVDs of each of each of the Keynote Presentations are available for purchase online from the WFOT Shop.
