The past ten years have seen a significant increase in research relating to culture and occupational therapy practice and theory. Contributions from Asia and research into cross cultural practice have begun to challenge the universality of occupational therapy theory and practice. This paper will discuss current themes in the literature and identify what gaps still exist within occupational therapy discourse. In particular, the cultural construction of occupational therapy as a profession and the challenges of educating culturally safe professionals will be examined. Recommendations for future research areas relating to the cultural construction of occupational therapy will be made.
