The purpose of this study was to identify the knowledge, skills, attitudes and characteristics required of occupational therapists for the efficient performance of occupational therapy in order to develop a competency model and competency indicators for South Korean occupational therapists. To derive the competency components and indicators of occupational therapists for the model, the researcher first conducted a literature review and performed behavior event interviews (BEI’s) on 8 occupational therapists selected as a superior performance group. Next, an expert committee was formed with 6 members consisting of occupational therapy professors and practitioners to critique the draft model, which went through 2 Delphi surveys conducted on 23 panelists consisting of 13 professors and 10 clinical therapists. To verify the model’s validity, questionnaire surveys on the importance of each indicator were conducted on 317 occupational therapists across the nation. Inner consistency (Cronbach’s alpha) was confirmed to verify validity and reliability, and an exploratory factor analysis was also performed. The results went through the expert committee to finalize the core competency model. The competency model for occupational therapists developed in this study is structured into a 3-level hierarchy, consisting of 2 competency clusters (a job execution competency cluster and a professional qualifications competency cluster), 10 competency components and 53 indicators. For the job execution competency cluster, 4 competencies were derived: theoretical knowledge, occupational therapy performance I (planning and intervention), occupational therapy performance II (resource management and connection), and client-centered performance. Further, 6 components were derived for the professional qualifications competency cluster: ethical awareness, professionalism, communication, positive attitude and initiative, teamwork, and self-management. The competency components and indicators revealed in this study can be used as critical basic data to foster occupational therapists, train clinical occupational therapists and improve the relevant curricula in the future. Subsequent research is required to identify the core competencies for specific roles performed by occupational therapists. Identification of these competencies in different areas will provide more meaningful reference data for setting up new training and education courses.
