Evaluation in Professional Practice (OCCP4089)

UNIT OF STUDY

Working as a professional requires a high degree of autonomy, a dedication to life-long learning, a capacity to work in partnership with others, and an ability to reflect on the quality of one's practice and service delivery. This unit of study comprises three topics: evaluating practice, evaluating client and program outcomes, and self-evaluation for continuing professional development. Students will learn how to evaluate the process and outcomes of services, how to select, appraise, and apply outcome measurement in a practice context when evaluating client outcomes and contribute to evidence-informed practice. Finally, students will learn how to identify professional development goals and select strategies for continuing professional development as an occupational therapist.
