This final fieldwork placement experience is focused on students developing independence and autonomy within a range of practice communities. Students will incorporate their fieldwork experiences into an exploration of reflexivity as a core capability in professional practice. Assessments will be focussed on student capabilities in integrating content from their studies throughout the Master of Occupational Therapy program
