Abstract:
Promotes understanding of how, throughout the world, "population health" as well as individual well-being is dependent on occupation. At international and national levels, the role of occupation in terms of the physical, mental, and social health of all individuals and populations remains poorly understood and largely overlooked as an inevitable and constant factor. It encourages practitioners of public health, occupational therapy and others to extend current thinking and practice and embrace a holistic view of how occupation and health interact.
