Occupational Performance: Home and Family - OCCP2085

Year - 2018

Many adults who experience challenges performing day-to-day activities could benefit from services in order to continue living in the community. Occupational therapy is useful to enhance, restore, or maintain performance of and participation in self-care, mobility, domestic, social, and leisure activities within the home. Paying particular attention to the typical social context (family) within which people live, students will further develop assessment, intervention, and evaluation skills relevant to the performance of daily life activities within the home. In doing so, students will learn: Within a home context, how do I best provide occupational therapy services from a client-centred perspective? How do I involve families when focusing on the performance of day-to-day activities within the home? How might home environments be modified to enhance safety and performance of everyday activities? This unit of study builds on units such as OCCP1099: Occupational Performance: Healthcare I, to extend students' knowledge of occupational therapy practice beyond the hospital setting.
