Analysing Occupations and Performance (OCCP1097)

UNIT OF STUDY

The ability to analyse occupations, roles, activities, tasks and the environment is a core occupational therapy competency. Categories of activity which occupational therapists may observe and analyse include: self-care, mobility, domestic, social, educational, play, leisure, economic, and community. Using various methods of analysis, students will develop the skills to observe and analyse activities performed by children, youth and adults. In doing so, students will learn: How do I determine what enables (and hinders) people's participation in and performance of activities? How do I measure and summarise a person's time use? How do I identify environmental factors that influence people's performance in activities? How might I structure and adapt activities to enable performance, regardless of a person's health condition?
