Implementing Skills in OT Prof Practice (OCCP5240)


Extended fieldwork placements provide students with the opportunity to consolidate, apply, and further develop their knowledge of occupational therapy practice, with a focus on graduate capabilities. Enabling participation lies at the core of all occupational therapy practice and students will have the opportunity to implement, monitor, and evaluate a range of strategies as part of the fieldwork placement associated with this unit. As members of different interdisciplinary teams, students will have opportunities to engage in formal and informal inter-professional learning. During this placement, students will also maintain contact with each other to broaden their vision about the diversity of occupational therapy practice and to deepen their knowledge of planning, implementation and evaluation across practice communities.
