Abstract

The College of Occupational Therapists commissioned the POTTER project to inform its work and the work of its research foundation. The aim was to identify its members' views about the current national priorities for occupational therapy research in the United Kingdom. A five-stage study was conducted. The main method was a national survey of the professional body's membership (n = 7000); 2,661 completed questionnaires were returned (38% response rate) and the respondents represented the current membership. The main research priority was a need for research into the effectiveness of occupational therapy. The findings have implications for research capacity building and the commissioning of occupational therapy research.
