Unfortunately I was not able to access the full article, but I do think that there is scope for OT to operate in both clinical and non clinical settings. I am not working in clinic, but I am certainly bringing skills from OT to the work that I am doing now. We do need to be sure that we do not use science to back up unscientific practice, but at the same time we should allow ourselves to be guided by other forces other than science - the humanities for example.
