Thank you for providing your valuable and constructive feedback during the first round of consultation.
We've considered all your responses. Most of you rejected the proposed code of ethics and we have returned to refreshing the Board’s original code. The overwhelming majority of submissions felt the proposed code was not specific enough for occupational therapists but was more consumer-focused. There was concern that occupational therapists may not get enough guidance from the code and it could be difficult to refer to in disciplinary or legal proceedings.
We are now going over the documents to include further amendments following the first phase of feedback. We would like you to provide more feedback during the second phase of this mahi. There will be plenty of chances to do this:
- a webinar on 16 August
- an online survey that goes live on 16 August
- hui on 26 and 27 August in Kirikiriroa/Hamilton and Otautahi/Christchurch
We'll post more details next week. Once again thank you for being involved in updating these living documents.
