"Diversional & Recreation Therapists often play a significant role in healthcare - the practice unifies various allied health themes with a focus on humanistic application to benefit the client.There is a huge potential in Diversional & Recreational Therapy as a discipline both, locally and abroad. I hope the profession continues to grow and establish itself as a significant allied health profession with further evidence-based practice. Oftentimes, a strong foundation in principles, practice and dynamic research activities can help form pillars of the profession. I believe much of this is already seen from the interest and activities illustrated in the recent conference."
