    The theme of the College of Occupational Therapists' annual conference this year, ‘Occupation Matters’, led two occupational therapy lecturers to reflect on the place of occupation, in the form of techniques and media, within their curriculum. Despite a strong rationale for it remaining on the curriculum, there was an awareness that this might not reflect the reality of practice. It is suggested that many occupational therapists are not using techniques and media because they lack the confidence to do so. Such a lack of confidence could therefore be addressed in the occupational therapy curriculum, using experiential learning and evidence-based practice.
