This new position statement from the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) describes occupational therapy's role in pain management. AOTA asserts that occupational therapy practitioners are distinctly prepared to work independently and to contribute to interprofessional teams in the treatment of pain. Practitioners strive to ensure active engagement in meaningful occupations for clients at risk for and affected by pain.
