WA Occupational Therapy Association Monthly Newsletter to Members


WA Occupational Therapy Association encourages the submission of articles from members and other relevant bodies. This is one way in which we keep members up to date with current happenings in Western Australia.

All articles are to be submitted to the WA Occupational Therapy Association office via email for editing info@waota.com.au. Our newsletter is issued bi-monthly therefore submission dates are:

Edition: Dec/Jan
Due Date: 10th Dec

Edition: Feb/Mar
Due Date: 15th Feb

Due Date: 15th Apr

Edition: June/July
Due Date: 15th June

Edition: Aug/Sept
Due Date: 15th August

Edition: Oct/Nov

There are a variety of headings used in the newsletter, which your article can be placed under:

  • Letters to the editor
  • Research
  • Media Watch
  • Vital Information
  • Forthcoming Events
  • Seminars and Conferences
  • Notices
  • Specialty Groups
  • Keeping in Touch
  • Spotlight
  • Clinical Initiatives

Articles can be a brief comment, or as long as the topic requires. The Newsletter Committee reserves the right to edit as needed.

So, send your articles or comments in. Ideas to get you started are:

  • A spotlight on a service, department or individual
  • A clinical experience or case study
  • A review of a piece of equipment
  • A summary of a conference or course attended or given
  • A review of a quality improvement project or evidence based practice review
  • A funny situation
  • A comment on a political situation

If you have a great idea or a lead on a story but are unable to follow up yourself, let the Newsletter Committee know, via the WA Occupational Therapy Association Office, and we may be able to assist.

N.B. Articles submitted for inclusion from Private Practice or other financial organisations will be encouraged to also submit an advertisement in the same issue (please refer to advertisement rates).
