Developing OT Prof. Skills in Practice (OCCP5238)


This unit will engage students in the process of developing professional skills within elements of the occupational therapy process. The unit will explore the importance of reflexivity as a core capability in professional practice, and will provide opportunities for students to reflect on their own professional behaviour and development. A fieldwork placement will allow students to develop and document their ongoing achievement of professional competencies in a range of appropriate practice skills.
