This opinion piece aims to clarify the concepts of the theory-practice and practice-theory gaps, and to begin to explore the impact of these gaps on efficacious occupational therapy practice. Any perceived gaps between theoretical knowledge and practice skills may have a detrimental effect of the student experience and ultimately upon the production of graduates who are fit for practice and purpose. A number of issues are raised. Once significant issue is the value of clinical updating for academic staff and its imact upon the student experience. ANother issue is the need for further clarification of the definitions of theory-practice / practice-theory gaps and consideration of the impact of these perceived gaps. A need for further reearch is identified to explore staff perceptions of these issues.
