The Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF) is a document that evolves and changes on a 5-year cycle. During that cycle, information is gathered to conclude whether refinements or additions need to be made. “The revision process ensures that the OTPF maintains its integrity while responding to internal and external influences that should be reflected in emerging concepts and advances in occupational therapy” (AOTA, 2020, p. 3).
