Sinds 2001 ben ik betrokken bij de Council Of Occupational Therapists for the European Countries COTEC. Eerst als delegate  voor Nederland en later als COTEC ENOTHE link person en sinds 2013 als president.

De COTEC heeft als missie Ergotherapie zichtbaar, gewaardeerd en toegankelijk te maken voor alle burgers van Europa.

COTEC was established in 1986 with the purpose of co-ordinating the views of the National Associations of Occupational Therapy in Europe. The aim of COTEC is to enable National Associations of Occupational Therapists to work together to develop, harmonise and improve standards of professional practice through a robust educational system, as well as advance the theory of Occupational Therapy throughout Europe to best address the social and health issues affecting the citizens of Europe.

COTEC is the European organization for all Occupational Therapists through their National Associations, with the purpose of ensuring an adequate number of high quality occupational therapy practitioners and services in Europe.

COTEC is a non-profit organisation, funded by annual membership subscription and represents 30 European Occupational Therapy Associations and more than 120,000 Occupational Therapists.

Er zijn allerlei mogelijkheden om als individuele ergotherapeut mee te werken aan het doel van COTEC

Making Occupational Therapy available, accessible, visible and valued all over Europe!
