Abstract: The emphasis of an evidence-based occupational therapy practice includes several challenges for our profession and academic discipline. By using the hierarchical models proposed for reviewing research evidence in occupational therapy research during the last two decades, an imbalance in research methods used is visible. This challenges those of us working in occupational therapy to reflect upon how current theories and approaches are developed, refined and tested in an evidence-building process. Secondly, we need to reflect on how the current evidence we are generating provides support for the unique occupational component in occupational therapy, both in the interventions and outcomes defined and used. Thirdly, we also need to present and discuss our experiences and findings in more global contexts in order to learn from each other and establish new collaborations in the occupational therapy community. By doing so, we can provide evidence-based occupational therapy that is based on the value of occupation and that transcends disability, ethnicity, age and context.
