Abstract

It is an honour to act as guest editors for this special issue of the British Journal of Occupational Therapy (BJOT), containing current research and concerns about occupational performance from Australia, Chile, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Japan. Occupational performance, the ‘doing of meaningful activities, tasks, and roles through complex interaction between the person and the environment’ (Baum et al 2011), is important for occupational therapists. It describes our unique role and people’s ability to engage in meaningful activities, tasks, and roles that support both their participation in daily life and their sense of wellbeing (Christiansen and Baum 2005).
