Looking to Network With and Learn From Other OT Practitioners in a Specific Area of OT?

Join one of TNOTA's Communities of Practice (CoPs). A Community of Practice is a group of people that agree to interact regularly to solve practice issues or improve practice in an area that is important to them. These CoPs serves as collaborative, member-driven groups of OT practitioners and students in Tennessee who share a common specialty or area of interest.  CoP members agree to interact regularly to work together to solve common practice issues, share resources, and make connections! 

Community of Practice discussions can be found on our forums page. You may also contact the CoP facilitator listed below.

If you would like information about a CoP not listed below, or are interested in facilitating or co-facilitating a CoP, please send an email to [email protected].
