Enabling Occupation with Communities (OCCP5228)


In this unit students will further their skills in problem identification, assessment, occupational analysis and intervention working within varying client and OT contexts, including: across the lifespan from childhood to middle age and older adults in individual, family, group and population contexts; indigenous health; and international health. This will include but not be limited to emerging areas of OT practice and roles. Students will be encouraged to look beyond immediate tasks and contexts to see the bigger picture, trends, needs and opportunities in the workplace, profession and broader community of practice. Students will integrate theory and practice undertaken in previous units of study, to apply to groups and communities as the primary target groups.
