Professional Practice 2 (OCCP2086)


Professional practice involves problem solving, clinical reasoning and collaborative teamwork. This unit continues the focus on professional development in preparation for practice across all areas. During the semester, students will further develop their understanding of how clinical reasoning informs the occupational therapy process, along with their professional therapeutic and teamwork communication. Students will participate in supervised fieldwork experiences in a simulated health care setting and in an off-campus professional service setting. The off-campus component is completed outside of the semesters during semester breaks.
