Occupational therapists are increasingly expected to implement and monitor indicators of occupational therapy quality performance. Goals of quality measurement and improvement include enhancing satisfaction of the end-user, optimising the efficient use of resources and improving health outcomes. A Quality Indicator (QI) Framework with 56 generic indicators was developed for occupational therapy by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists for selecting, organising and reporting on quality indicators in a structured and meaningful way. A consultation involving 46 occupational therapists from 21 countries indicated the QI Framework shows promise to help occupational therapists select relevant and useful measures to evaluate their occupational therapy services. Work will, therefore, continue to further evaluate and refine the QI Framework, as well as develop resources to support the implementation and use of the tool.
