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 consolidate skills required for evaluating and supporting their clinical reasoning, develop an understanding of how types of reasoning inform the process of occupational therapy, and build on their collaborative teamwork and professional communication skills. At the end of the semester, students will participate in a supervised two-week, full-time experience within a professional service setting.
