To support the Centennial Vision, AOTA has identified Health and Wellness as a key practice area in the 21st century. Factors that will drive an increasing need for wellness-related services are based on an accumulating body of scientific evidence that an individual's health is directly related to physical as well as emotional well-being.
Factors that will increase the need for services in this area include a growing aging population with increased longevity; an increased focus on health care disparities affecting treatment and services; the health effects of rising rates of obesity; and factors that challenge the quality and pace of life, including technology and imbalances in life roles.
