Many occupational therapy students now undertake at least one fieldwork placement in a contemporary (role-emerging) setting. This critical literature review aimed to provide an overview of current placement provision, consider key drivers, and the benefits and challenges, and make recommendations. The recommendations propose an enhanced collaborative and occupation-based focus for all occupational therapy student placement experiences. There is also a need for further research in the area, and evidence of outcomes in relation to placement settings and service users' perspectives.
