Let’s Start Here: Relationships, Resilience, Relevance As a profession, occupational therapy is navigating choppy waters and shifting sands in health care and education arenas, academic environments, and service delivery and payment systems. While the direction of a changing tide is not always predictable or desired, the response to change is ours to own—collectively. In her Address, Wendy Hildenbrand proposes the “new 3 R’s” and challenges us to return to the “basics” of our profession, specifically the shared professional characteristics needed to move us forward. It is time to reset our focus on restoring and creating meaningful yet strategic relationships, embracing our collective strength and capacity for personal and professional resilience, and committing to innovative “doing” to assure our relevance as a health and human service profession and a member-focused Association. Let’s get back to basics!
